Subject:Merge tables.
View as plain text  

One of the databases I use just switched to using merge tables and now
my queries are painfully slow. One table, initially had about 2.5
million records and now with the change this information is spread
across about 1600 tables. A simple query, say select count(*) has gone
from .04 to about 30 seconds, sometimes even longer.

The OS is FreeBSD on a 3.1 GHz machine with a 1GB ram. Mysql is
4.1.15. My my.cnf currently has only one option:


If anyone could provide me with some other options I might try I would
appreciate it.
