More specific than the "what links here" Special page?

Question

I've found documentation saying that the "What links here" Special pages are driven by records in the Pagelinks_table 

But how do I look at this table?  I'm hoping to filter the data to show subsections link granularity. (We have a Glossary page so there are far too many page listed as linking to it.)

The Documention page on the pagelinks table says what the table is, the format & how to regenerate it. But not how to access.

You need access to the backend server (such as via SSH) in order to directly look at and query the database tables. If you are looking for something more powerful to generate lists of pages on-wiki based on whatever criteria, you can check out the DPL extension. Fair warning though: it's very easy to knock your wiki offline temporarily with a poorly-written DPL query.
