Re: Count(*) query is slower on partitioned table

Yet another reason for not using PARTITIONing.

I cannot explain your third case, which should have limited itself to the one partition.

There is perhaps never a performance advantage in PARTITION BY RANGE(the-primary-key). Is that your actual case?

Here are my comments on partitioning: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/partition-maintenance/ , including the only 4 use cases (that I know of) for which performance is benefited.

Another pet peeve of mine: Notice how useless Profiling is. (BTW, it is deprecated and going away.)
