Manual page about I_S.INNODB_SYS_FOREIGN table, http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/innodb-sys-foreign-table.html, says:

"Since the INFORMATION_SCHEMA is a general-purpose way to monitor the MySQL server, use this table rather than the corresponding InnoDB system table for any new monitoring application you develop."

I wonder what exact "InnoDB system table" it means and how one could access it in old monitoring applications?

How to repeat:
Read the manual and try to guess or find out what exact "InnoDB system table" (that could be used in the past to get information about foreign keys) it means.

Suggested fix:
Try to be more specific or remove this phrase entirely as meaningless in context of MySQL server.
