On “Replace Into”, “Insert Ignore”, Triggers, and Row Based Replication

In posts on June 30 and July 6, I explained how implementing the commands “replace into” and “insert ignore” with TokuDB’s fractal trees data structures can be two orders of magnitude faster than implementing them with B-trees. Towards the end of each post, I hinted at that there are some caveats that complicate the story a little. On July 21st I explained one caveat, secondary keys, and on August 3rd, Rich explained another caveat. In this post, I explain the other …

TokuDB speeds up “replace” and “insert ignore” operations by relaxing the affected rows constraint

In posts on June 30 and July 6, we explained how implementing the commands “replace into” and “insert ignore” with TokuDB’s fractal trees data structures can be two orders of magnitude faster than implementing them with B-trees. Towards the end of each post, we hinted at that there are some caveats that complicate the story a little. In this post, we explain one of the complications: the calculation of affected rows.

MySQL returns the number of rows affected by a “replace” or “insert” statement to the client. For the “replace” statement, the number of affected rows is defined to be the sum of the number of rows …

On “Replace Into”, “Insert Ignore”, and Secondary Keys

In posts on June 30 and July 6, I explained how implementing the commands “replace into” and “insert ignore” with TokuDB’s fractal trees data structures can be two orders of magnitude faster than implementing them with B-trees. Towards the end of each post, I hinted at that there are some caveats that complicate the story a little. In this post, I explain one of the complications: secondary indexes.

Secondary indexes act the same way in TokuDB as they do in InnoDB. They store the defined secondary key, and the primary key as a pointer to the rest of the row. So, say the table foo has the following schema:

Why “insert … on duplicate key update” May Be Slow, by Incurring Disk Seeks

In my post on June 18th, I explained why the semantics of normal ad-hoc insertions with a primary key are expensive because they require disk seeks on large data sets. I previously explained why it would be better to use “replace into” or to use “insert ignore” over normal inserts. In this post, I explain why another alternative to normal inserts, “insert … on duplicate key update” is no better in MySQL, because the command incurs disk seeks.

The reason “insert ignore” and “replace into” can be made fast with TokuDB’s fractal trees is that the semantics of what to do in case a duplicate key is found is simple. …

Making “Insert Ignore” Fast, by Avoiding Disk Seeks

In my post from three weeks ago, I explained why the semantics of normal ad-hoc insertions with a primary key are expensive because they require disk seeks on large data sets. Towards the end of the post, I claimed that it would be better to use “replace into” or “insert ignore” over normal inserts, because the semantics of these statements do NOT require disk seeks. In my post last week, I explained how the command “replace into” can be fast with TokuDB’s fractal trees. Today, I explain how “insert ignore” can be fast, using a strategy that is very similar to what we do with “replace into”.

The semantics …
