I have got an application that is currently using an in house grwon database, i am looking
at replacing this db with MySql. I am not sure if it would be better for me to work with
the standart MySql db or to use an embedded MySql that will be compiled with my
application and run with it.
Have any perfromance tests were done to copamre the stdandart MySql with an embedded one,
I would have guss that using embedded MySql would give better perfromance, am i right ?
I have used the C MySql native api to try and test the normal version and the embedded
one, I have come acros some results that i have problem explaining. i am perfroming
random queris on an indexed table that contains 10000 records (the table is indexed by
it's primary key and i am querying by the indexed column). perfroming about 10000
repeated random queris is about 30 percent faster when using embedded MySql then when
using normal one.
This seems reasonable to me, but when i try to perfrom the same test on an un indexed
table then working with the normal version is about two times faster then the embedded
If any one could give me any info reagrding my questions i would be greatfull.
Thanks in advance,
