> Will this extra partitions slow down the queries of affect any other processes?

Yes! ALL partitions are opened for many operations, even before partition 'pruning' takes place. (This is a 'bug'; 5.6 improves on it. Mattias, if you are listening, can you clarify how far 5.6 improved it?)

Use RANGE partitioning.

> Cons: We'll have to add a new partition set every time we approach the last yearmonth.

Yes, it is a nuisance. Here's advice, discussion, and code:

If you already have a DATE or DATETIME field, there is no need to create the extra yearmonth field just for PARTITIONing.
