I'm checking the slow query log, and I found this:

I have a Mysql Server 5.5 and In VB.NET when launch a query like "SELECT * from exampletablename1 " always in the mysql slow log i found this slow query "SHOW TABLE STATUS FROM database like 'exampletablename1'

I don't understand why a "select *" generate the "show table status from..., but in any case, I'm sure that the "SHOW TABLES STATUS" are a slow query

Why? and how can I solve it

Regards

the vb.net code is likely having the abstraction layer that is first looking at the table meta data information before actually running the query ...

I'm agree, but the problem is that SHOW TABLE STATUS FROM tablename when I use a innodb table take more than 1 minute to return the results...

In the beginning I supose that the "select *" generated the problem, but I did a deep analyse, and I found that the show table status are generated always that I include in the select sentence the primary key field. If I launch a select query that doesn't have the primary key field included, the mysql adaptar doesn't generate the show table status before

can you please check which value this property has on the data adapter (MissingSchemaAction):
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.common.dataadapter.missingschemaaction.aspx

it shall be "Add" by default, you might consider to change to ignore, and create the data table configuration explicitly before filling it from the data adapter
