Re: CREATE INDEX Online DDL Not Working

Online DDL does not imply that it is necessarily faster than before. The point of online DDL is that it will be possible to read and write to the table while the DDL is ongoing.

There is no way to create an index without actually writing the pages of the index to disk. That said, InnoDB secondary index creation should be faster in MySQL 5.7 since an improved algorithm is used.
