Mysql's view optimization is very rudimentary. If it can trivially
substitute the view definition into your original query, it will do so;
otherwise it has to create a temporary table containing the view, and
reference that table instead. "EXPLAIN SELECT count(*) from my_connect"
should make it obvious which one mysql is using in your case.
You'll probably have to embed your cpes_noise_num view inside the my_connect
view as a subquery instead.
