SHOW TABLE STATUS patch - Magento 2

How to install our isTableExists() patch for MySQL

INFO: The patch below is already included since version Magento 2.4.2.

If you are running an online shop with an earlier version of Magento, there are several methods to install our performance patch for MySQL. For a safe installation of the update we recommend the installation via Composer.

Composer method

For the installation via Composer, the file composer-fasterisTableExists.diff.gz must be downloaded and unpacked inside the Magento root directory into the folder patches/composer. If this folder does not exist yet, please create it beforehand..

This is possible via SSH with the following commands:

cd <MagentoStammverzeichnis>
mkdir -p patches/composer
curl > patches/composer/fasterisTableExists.diff.gz
gunzip patches/composer/fasterisTableExists.diff.gz

In order to install patches via Composer, you need the cweagans/composer-patches tool, which can be installed with the following command:

composer require cweagans/composer-patches

In the next step, extend the extra section of composer.json to install the patch. For this, please add the following:

    "extra": {
         "composer-exit-on-patch-failure": true,
         "patches": {
           "magento/framework": {
             "fasterisTableExists": "patches/composer/fasterisTableExists.diff"

If you use a build pipeline or manage the composer.json in an external repository, please make sure that the composer.json is also adapted there, so that the patch is also applied in future deployments.

The patch can now be installed with the following command:

composer -v install

The output should confirm that the vendor/magento/framework/DB/Adapter/Pdo/Mysql.php has been modified.

The output usually looks like this:

Running PHPCodeSniffer Composer Installer
PHP CodeSniffer Config installed_paths set to ../../magento/magento-coding-standard,../../phpcompatibility/php-compatibility,../../codeception
Using config file: /var/www/share/

Config value "installed_paths" updated successfully; old value was "../../codeception,../../magento/magento-coding-standard,../../phpcompatibility/php-compatibility"

Note: The message "can't find file to patch at input line 3" is normal and does not prevent the correct installation of the patch.

Finally, the composer.lockfile must be updated, which can be done with the following command:

composer update --lock

Please note that this file must also be transferred to the version management if required.

Please also remember to remove the patch from composer.json again when updating to Magento 2.4.2.

Patch method

Alternatively to the method via Composer, it is also possible to install the patch directly.

For this, the patch can be downloaded from the Magento root directory with the following command:

gunzip fasterisTableExists.diff.gz

It is then installed with this command:

patch -p0 < fasterisTableExists.diff

After the patch installation you can remove the fasterisTableExists.diff file again. Please note that this procedure must be repeated after each Magento update.
