MySQL is hanging when I try to do SHOW COLLATION on my Amazon RDS instance. I can use SHOW COLLATION fine with my local database, and other SQL commands work fine on my RDS instance. But Amazon SHOW COLLATION hangs every time. Maybe I have too many collations? I'd be perfectly happy just setting it to utf8 or Latin1 collation.

I'm using mysql(5.6.12) on a micro instance.

Any ideas on what I can do? Or how can I get more information on what's happening?
