Case sensitive vs non case sensitive performance
Posted by: Kjeld Flarup

I discovered that one of my heavy databases uses latin1_swedish_ci as collation all over. But none of the data stored requires case insensitive seraches or joins.

Before I go and change this, I would like to know if anyone knows how much the performance difference is between _ci and non _ci
Is it worth while to do this, or will I not see any difference in performance if the indexes are made properly?
