less command to vie the output of a mysql result you could use:
mysql> \P less
mysql> pager less
Then run something like:
mysql> show engine innodb status\G
In some cases you may need to search for something in specific for this
could be used, for example:
mysql> \P grep -A7 "ROW OPERATIONS" PAGER set to 'grep -A7 "ROW OPERATIONS"'
Then when running the command it will only return 7 lines after "ROW OPERATIONS"
To disable the pager type
mysql> \n Pager disabled. Time: 0.000s
