View as plain text  
I am new to MySQL and this listserv.  I have a couple of questions about the
recommendations at the link given below.

1)  If autocommit is turned off during the large load, could this cause the underlying
InnoDB log to grow too big?

2)  If the unique checks and foreign key checks are turned off during the large load, are
the checks run for the newly loaded data when they are turned back on?  If not, what kind
of errors would occur later if the loaded data contained duplicate keys or non-existent
foreign keys?
