When I launch SHOW TABLE STATUS FROM tablename, in a innodb table, the results take more than 1 minute.

How can I increase the speed of this sentence?

Normally for a single table you do
SHOW TABLE STATUS LIKE 'table'

Open in new window

Did you try this?

Yes, but the table is a innodb and take a lot of time to resolve it

This slowness seems to be due to transactions or READ LOCKs as mentioned here.

Which MySQL version do you have?

We have 5.5, and the "show table status" are running in a server without any another connections (Only for test), the question is that the table is a big innod table with thousands of records

What information do you need in SHOW TABLE STATUS output? I believe you can get the same information from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.
