After Bug#32440 was fixed, information about free table space was placed to Data_free column, but unlike other engines (and unlike other fields) the data there is in kilobytes, what may cause lots of confusion. 

Keeping consistent behavior would be nice. 

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Be consistent, use bytes.

Vasil has a patch for this. We change the value to bytes in an upcoming 5.1.2x. It is not nice to change the behavior in an almost GA release, but better late than never.

Looks like this is a duplicate of http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=32440.

Sorry, not a duplicate.

Noted in 5.1.25 changelog.

For InnoDB tables, the DATA_FREE column of the 
INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES displayed free space in kilobytes rather
than bytes. Now it displays bytes. 

Setting report to Patch queued pending push into 6.0.x.

Setting report to Need Doc Info pending push into 6.0.x.

Setting report to Patch queued pending re-push of this patch.
[27 May 2008 18:34] Paul DuBois
The push into 5.1 was reverted, so there is no 5.1.x changelog entry.
[27 May 2008 18:39] Paul DuBois
The push into 6.0.x was a null merge that changed nothing. Resetting report to Patch Approved pending further push of patch into 6.0.x.

The "parent" report for this set of bugs is Bug#32440.

Merged into 6.0.6-alpha, according to Tim. But the patch has not been pushed into 5.1 yet.

Noted in 6.0.6 changelog.

Paul, are you sure this is correct:

"Setting report to Need Doc Info pending push into 5.1.x."

shouldn't it read "patch pending" instead of "need doc info"?
[24 Jul 2008 7:37] Vasil Dimov
Hmm, this is not yet committed into 5.1. I think it should go before 5.1 becomes GA, so such a change from kilobytes to bytes is not made in a GA release. Does this make sense?
[22 Aug 2008 15:38] Timothy Smith
Queued to 5.1-bugteam; this is fixed in both 5.1 and 6.0.
