If I want to execute "SHOW STATUS" within MySQL or use "mysqladmin extended-status" on command line with a non-root user, which privileges would this user then need?

Taken from the MySql documentation:

This statement does not require any privilege. It requires only the ability to connect to the server.

Ohh shame on me, a normal user without any privileges can do it :) –  Matthias Apr 14 '13 at 1:55
