MySQL Performance - Option setting

I set OPTION=3 in my connection string as recommended by MySQL
for a VB application.

OPTION=3 is Don't Optimised Column Width (1) and Return Matching Rows (2).

I found this to be very slow on a database with just 27,000 records. It took
approx. 12 seconds to read 27,000 records.

When I change the OPTION to 8 (Allow Big Results), it took just 3 seconds to
read 27,000 records. BUT now my application cannot update records anymore
and getting random errors on transactions.

I try setting OPTION=11 (all 3 options added together) and the speed went
back to being slow.

Can someone please help?

I am trying to use PHPNuke on a linux box but I think PHP does not see the Mysql Server. When I use the test php program I get this error "Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mysql_connect() in /home/david/html/html/test.php on line 3" I am using Debian unstable.

Hi folks, Yesterday I have upgraded my linux box with a pair of Xeon 1G CPU and reinstalled everything (it was a sinle Xeon 700). The default RH9 installation comes with MySQL 3.23.54.

(It's not very slow, but some lagging is noticed) I was running Mysql-max 4.0.11 and the performance was ok, except the slowness during the peak hours, which was regarded as...

Hi, I am using MySQL for a table which will have 100M+ records, avg length of records being 130 bytes. When the number of records reach approx. 25M (and the file size close to 4GB), the rate of inserts falls drastically from 800 per second to 30-40 per second. Details: * MySQL 3.23.58 on Fedora Core 3

Hello, I have a client (customer) who asked the question : "Why would I buy and use UDB, when MySql is free?" I had to say I was stunned. I have no experience with MySql, so I was left sort of stammering and sputtering, and managed to pull out something I heard a couple of years back - that there was no real transaction safety in MySql. In flight transactions could be lost.

Hi there I've noticed some very weird things happening with my current MySQL setup on my XP Laptop, a development machine. For a while, I have been trying to get the MySQL cache to work. Despite entering the required lines to "my.ini" (the new my.cnf) through notepad AND MySQL Administrator, the cache does not work. So, today I took a peek at the 'Health' tab in MySQL Administrator.

Hi, I have read many of the copius entries on the subject of IE performance (or the lack thereof) when populating Select Lists. I don't mind the insert performance so much, (I get 100x120byte rows inserted/sec up to 500, and 100rows/6secs up to 3000, which isn't great but then the Row Count is clicking away for the user to see and they can hit the "cancel" button at anytime, so overall I'm happy), what really disappoints me is the...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
