Then, shouldn't you partition by day, not by month???

perhaps but I have little experience of mysql partitions and I was given a nice example of monthly paritions. The way I planned to do it was let the data grow to two months then delete the first month. That way I always have one month of data.

If you can suggest a better/easier method I'd be happy :)

here was the event I thought I would try to call the drop partition routine:

SET iMonthSelect = Month(CURRENT_TIMESTAMP)-2;
call logg_recreate_partition( iMonthSelect );

here was the routine:


create procedure logg_recreate_partition( partno int )
set @stmt1 = concat( 'alter table loggg drop partition p', partno );
prepare stmt1 FROM @stmt1;
execute stmt1;
deallocate prepare stmt1;

set @stmt1 = concat ('alter table loggg add partition ( partition p', partno,
' values in ( ', partno, ' ))' );
prepare stmt1 FROM @stmt1;
execute stmt1;
deallocate prepare stmt1;
