Description:
When setting relay_log_info_repository=TABLE and master_info_repository=TABLE on slaves, innodb_rows_updated status variable becomes much larger on slave than master. This is because mysql.slave_*.info InnoDB tables are updated on slaves. This is pretty confusing.

How to repeat:
Set relay_log_info_repository=TABLE and master_info_repository=TABLE on slaves, and update one row on master. Then innodb_rows_updated increases by 1 on master but on slave innodb_rows_updated increases more than 1.

Suggested fix:
I like either of the following.
1. Ignore all statistics on mysql.* innodb tables
2. Introduce new status variables such as innodb_system_rows_[read|inserted|updated|deleted] and manage all mysql.* innodb tables statistics here

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described.

I can also see this as confusing as we often compare a master to a slave. Perhaps an extra counter is better given the current count _is_ correct, so that we can distinguish the 2 cases?
