MySQL PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA storage engine operates on tables in the performance_schema database.

Performance Schema tables are stored in theperformance_schema database. Information about the structure of this database and its tables can be obtained, as for any other database, by selecting from the INFORMATION_SCHEMA database or by using SHOW statements. For example, use either of these statements to see what Performance Schema tables exist:

mysql> SELECT TABLE_NAME FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA = 'performance_schema';
