What is stored InnoDB buffer pool

What is stored InnoDB buffer pool


Ever wonder what is stored in InnoDB buffer pool at the moment ?

It is not so hard actually – we made a short patch for MySQL 5.0 which show innodb buffer pool content

The binaries, RPMS (RedHat/Centos) and full source code also available to download

P.S. There is Jeremy Cole’s patch for InnoDB plugin MySQL 5.1, and main idea was taken from there.

    This is great! Can we expect to see this coming out in the Percona 5.1 binaries as well?

    I am looking for a similar tool for the ibdata and ibd files – somethings that dumps page numbers and for each page tells me what the page is and does.
