You were comparing select count(*) of a NDB table to a MyISAM table. The
MyISAM table is, of course, not in the cluster. I was merely suggesting
that if you instead compared it to an InnoDB table that was not in the
cluster, the comparison would be more fair.

I don't think you can do either of these things. Howewer, you might be
able to trick mysqld into not using the count in the MyISAM table by
adding a where clause that just happens to be true for all records.
