information_schemadatabase provides access to a variety of database metadata useful for inspecting your database and also used by database tooling. Dolt provides a subset of the data available in
information_schema, as described below. In general, all tables from MySQL's
information_schemaexist, with the correct schema, but not all data is populated. If you need support for information_schema metadata that is available in MySQL, but not yet available in Dolt, please open a GitHub issue to let us know what you need.
information_schemaalso provides tables specific to the use of the InnoDB storage engine. These tables are provided in Dolt to avoid issues with MySQL tools that read from these tables, however since Dolt uses its own storage engine, no data is populated in these tables.
