i am trying to to query a MySQL 5.7.19 with the "show variables" or the "show slave status" command but always receive a syntax error. All other select queries working fine.
When using the jdbc plugin there seem to be some extra requests being created becaus it is complaining about a statement like "select count(*) from (show variables)........". This does not seem to work.
As information_schema.gloabal status is not available any more and MySQL is heavily relying on this showcommands is there a way to get this working?
