Subject:RE: Performance Improvements with VIEW
View as plain text  
VIEWs are not well optimized.  Avoid them.

The SlowLog will probably point to the worst query; we can help you improve it (SHOW

Only minutes to go through 10 million records?  Sounds good.  It takes time to shovel
through that much stuff.

"Sending data" (etc) -- yeah these states are "useless information" in my book.  They
merely say "you have a slow query".  "Sorting results" probably implies a GROUP BY or
ORDER BY.  It _may_ be possible to avoid the sort (when we review the naughty query).

What kind of things are you doing?  If Data Warehouse 'reports', consider Summary Tables. 
Non-trivial, but the 'minutes' will become 'seconds'.
