Re: A first table partitioning exercise.

I’m running on an ideapad y550p bought in Jan of this yr (2010). Core i7 processor; 6 GB of memory (I added 2 to the 4 that it came with); 7200 rpm 500 GB disk (divided into various hardware partitions).

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

This is the MySql build (I named the directory where I put it with the same version as in the kit I downloaded):

d:\Projects\mysql-5.5.5-m3-winx64

Here’s how I CREATEd the two tables, which should be verbatim from off of

http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/articles/performance-partitioning.html

CREATE TABLE part_tab
           (  c1 int default NULL,
       c2 varchar(30) default NULL,
       c3 date default NULL
     
           ) engine=myisam
           PARTITION BY RANGE (year(c3)) (PARTITION p0 VALUES LESS THAN (1995),
           PARTITION p1 VALUES LESS THAN (1996) , PARTITION p2 VALUES LESS THAN (1997) ,
           PARTITION p3 VALUES LESS THAN (1998) , PARTITION p4 VALUES LESS THAN (1999) ,
           PARTITION p5 VALUES LESS THAN (2000) , PARTITION p6 VALUES LESS THAN (2001) ,
           PARTITION p7 VALUES LESS THAN (2002) , PARTITION p8 VALUES LESS THAN (2003) ,
           PARTITION p9 VALUES LESS THAN (2004) , PARTITION p10 VALUES LESS THAN (2010),
           PARTITION p11 VALUES LESS THAN MAXVALUE );


create table no_part_tab
      (c1 int(11) default NULL,
      c2 varchar(30) default NULL,
      c3 date default NULL) engine=myisam;

I noticed that both tables are myisam and wondered about that. I believe MyIsam (Index structured access method) is the non-transactional engine while InnoDb is the transactional.

There’s probably more that I need to do, but this message is already long.

Thanx for your help - pat
