I'm fairly sure that the longblob column will prevent MySQL from being able to use 'in
memory temp tables' regardless of whether it is included in the SELECT. In an ideal world
I would move that longblob to a separate table.
How big are the tables fdata,ftype,fgroup? Can you post the results of EXPLAIN EXTENDED
for the query you posted? Can you also post the output of 'SHOW CREATE TABLE' for the

i use MyISAM storage,the MYI file is more than 500Gb. most of the sql is select with many
'and','or','order by',for example:
WHERE fgroup.gid = fdata.gid
AND ftype.ftypeid = fdata.ftypeid
OR fbin between '1000000000' and '1000000000'
OR fbin between '99999999.9999999' and '100000000'
OR fbin between '10000000.0000049' and '10000000.0000051'
OR fbin between '1000000.0000549' and '1000000.0000551'
OR fbin between '100000.0005529' and '100000.0005531'
OR fbin between '10000.0055379' and '10000.0055381'
OR fbin between '1000.0553839' and '1000.0553841')
AND fdata.fstop>='55384910' AND fdata.fstart<='55384989'
AND ((fmethod = 'genotype' AND fsource = 'SoapSNP') OR (fmethod
= 'gt_novel' AND fsource = 'SoapSNP') OR (fmethod = 'SNP' AND fsource =
'MutaGeneSys_06JUNE07') OR (fmethod = 'snp' AND fsource = 'HapMap_gt') OR (fmethod =
'similarity') OR (fmethod = 'HSP') OR (fmethod = 'match') OR (fmethod = 'CDS' AND
fsource = 'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod = '5\'-UTR' AND fsource = 'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod =
'3\'-UTR' AND fsource = 'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod = 'transcription_start_site' AND fsource =
'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod = 'polyA_site' AND fsource = 'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod = 'UTR' AND
'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod = 'five_prime_untranslated_region' AND fsource =
'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod = 'three_prime_untranslated_region' AND fsource =
'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod = 'five_prime_UTR' AND fsource = 'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod =
'three_prime_UTR' AND fsource = 'UCSC_1') OR (fmethod = 'exon' AND fsource = 'UCSC_1')
OR (fmethod = 'mRNA' AND fsource = 'UCSC_1'))
ORDER BY fgroup.gname;
there is a longblob column in the table, but even i do not select this blob
column, the i/o is still higher.
i have 16G memery in total, the oracle database take 1/4 of them, i try to increasing
the key_buffer_size to 2048M and tmp_table_size to 1024M,but the machine crashed out of
memery in one day,the mysqld takes over 18G memery!
i use show profiles find that 'sending data' and 'copying to tmp table'
takes lots of time.
