Subject:RE: Dropping column/index from MyISAM table increases disk space
without calling "optimize"
View as plain text  
Sorry, I can't address your specific question, but I have several other tips, some of
which may save a lot of space...

USING HASH -- ignored; presumably BTree is used instead.

What Version of MySQL?  5.5(?) can drop an InnoDB (only?) index live.

BTrees sometimes grow after any sort of copy/reorg.  Inserting rows (of data or index) in
sorted order will produce a more compact BTree.  Random insertion will (in theory) lead
to about 40% overhead.

Tricking MyISAM into "Rebuild by sorting" instead of "rebuild by keybuffer" should take
the more compact approach, and probable be faster.

OPTIMIZE (on MyISAM) will squeeze out any wasted space caused by DELETEs or diff-length
UPDATEs.

pt-online-schema-change uses a TRIGGER to do the work 'live'.

columnF is exactly 8 bytes in MyISAM.  That is <10% of the total?

These are so close to the same that I question they need for all of them:
>   UNIQUE KEY `unique2` (`columnR`,`columnB`,`columnA`,`columnN`,`columnL`,`columnM`)
>   UNIQUE KEY `unique3` (`columnR`,`columnB`,`columnA`,`columnO`,`columnI`)
>   UNIQUE KEY `unique4` (`columnR`,`columnB`,`columnA`,`columnJ`)
Do you need the UNIQUEness constraints?  Or would it suffice to simply say
    INDEX(B, A)

Hmmm... I would consider replacing these 8 indexes
u3 RBAOI
u4 RBAJ
u2 RBANLM
k4 RBANIOH
k7  BANOH
k9 RBAINOH
k5 RBAJH
u1 RBNAKOM
With 1:
INDEX(columnB, columnA, columnN)
Even if that doesn't work out, I suspect you could consolidate some.  After 3-4 fields, an
index becomes not very useful, and takes a lot of disk space.

(These look different enough to ignore)
k1 QN
k2 REPB
k3 BFNAR
k6 RNAHIBO
k8 BGNAR

> PARTITION BY RANGE (columnR)
For performance, it is usually better to put columnR at the _end_ of the indexes.  Better
yet would be to leave columnR off the indexes all together -- partition pruning does most
of what you need it for.

Since columnR smells like year+week, and each partition has a distinct value of it, I
think you definitely should not include R in any of the non-unique indexes -- this would
save ~3 bytes per row per index.  Also, definitely move R to the _end_ of the UNIQUE
indexes -- this would improve performance, especially when you query over a range of
columnR.

>   `columnQ` datetime DEFAULT NULL,
DATETIME takes 8 bytes and TIMESTAMP takes only 4 (until 5.6); consider changing to
TIMESTAMP.

Most operations on a PARTITIONed table open _all_ partitions, even if they only use _one_.
 For that reason, I recommend no more than, say, 50 partitions in a table.
