InnoDB information

SHOW ENGINE INNODB STATUS shows current InnoDB status, including deadlocks. I was thinking a while back it would be nice to have a log of all deadlocks. Well, I got my answer:

To cause the standard InnoDB Monitor to write to the standard output of mysqld, use the following SQL statement:

CREATE TABLE innodb_monitor (a INT) ENGINE=INNODB;

The monitor can be stopped by issuing the following statement:

DROP TABLE innodb_monitor;
