Alas, nothing automatic about creating future PARTITIONs. You should create a cron jobs for such.

Also, note that there is a limit of 1024 partitions, so you cannot even get to 3 years' worth of partitions.

Prematurely creating partitions leads to some queries doing extra work to check the empty partitions.

If you are not using the partitions to facilitate dropping old data, why do you want to PARTITION?
