When you use the mysql-client and run \s it shows you the status of the current user. I'm testing out SSL connection(s) and I want to be able to find out the SSL status, etc. of another connection id. SHOW FULL PROCESSLIST shows all the sessions, but doesn't display any SSL session information (cipher, etc.) like \s does for the current user.

SSL connection status is a session variable and I don't think you can reference those from other sessions.

You can find out if the server supports it:
