View as plain text  

Two things are likely to make this umpteen times faster.

a) Commit the insert transaction every.. say 1000 records?
b) use mysql's extended insert statement,
        insert into mytable values
(row1_field1,row1_field2),(row2_field1,row2_field2),(?,?),(?,?) etc etc

Subject: Mysql Innodb performance slow

Hi There,

We have currently an Interbase Database with millions and millions of
rows which I would like
to migrate to MySQL if possible to increase the speed.

Transaction support is necessary, so I am using innoDB.

When inserting 160K rows in the database (in an innoDB table) it takes
about 700! seconds
while the amount of same rows when inserted in a myisam table take about
100 seconds.

Now probably this can be fine tuned (I hope), and would like to ask for
some suggestions.

Is anybody using innodb with this amount of rows?  I'm curious of what
the performance is.

Is there something I should keep in mind when migrating?

Kind regards,

Jeroen Geusebroek
