optimizer variables are generally found with other general server variables. For example for optimizer_switch in 8.0: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_optimizer_swit...

However I can find no mention of optimizer_max_subgraph_pairs outside the source code documentation: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/mysql-server/latest/sys__vars_8cc.html#abffabb9f3f88e05334d9...

Searching the manual returns no results, likewise search engines only bring up links to the code docs.

I believe this variable was introduced in 8.0.30. That is the first version I see it available.

How to repeat:
Search the documentation for optimizer_max_subgraph_pairs. Check the documentation at https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/server-system-variables.html (8.0) or https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.4/en/server-system-variables.html (8.4)

Suggested fix:
Please add an appropriate entry in the documentation for this variable.

Hello Dov Endress,

Thank you for the report and feedback.

This variable is used only with a feature that is not available or supported in the standard MySQL Server, therefore it is not included in documentation.

Not a bug.
