If you can connect to the node's shell then this code should list you
all mnesia tables and keys:

	%% get all mnesia tables
	ListOfTables = mnesia:system_info(tables),

	%% get all keys for each table
	ListOfKeys =
		[{Table, mnesia:dirty_all_keys(Table)} ||
		Table <- ListOfTables,
		Table /= schema ],

	%% ListOfKeys is a list of tuples
	%% with table name and table keys

You can also try running tv:start() and then go to menu View -> Mnesia Tables.
