Persistent statistics and partitions

Today when I was studying for the MySQL 5.6 exams.

I was studying for these two items:

  • Create and utilize table partitioning
  • Obtain MySQL metadata from INFORMATION_SCHEMA tables


The first step is to create a table, partition it with a hash.

mysql> CREATE TABLE pfoo (id INT AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY, name VARCHAR(255))
-> PARTITION BY HASH(id) PARTITIONS 4;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.04 sec)

mysql> INSERT INTO pfoo(name) VALUES('test01'),('test02'),('test03'),('test04'),
-> ('test05'),('test06'),('test07'),('test08'),('test09'),('test10'),('test11');
Query OK, 11 rows affected (0.00 sec)
Records: 11 Duplicates: 0 Warnings: 0

mysql> SELECT * FROM pfoo;
+----+--------+
| id | name |
+----+--------+
| 4 | test04 |
| 8 | test08 |
| 1 | test01 |
