Support » Plugin: Optimize Database after Deleting Revisions » Optimizing innoDB Databases

  • Resolved paulmccabe


    Hello, I have read the innoDB-related FAQs, but after running an optimization, the size of my innoDB database increases substantially:
    Size of original database: ~550KB
    1st optimization: ~1,000KB
    2nd optimization: ~1,500KB
    The FAQ mentions that the DB size may increase “a little” in the case of optimization on innoDB, but it sort of seems the DB is being replicated every time optimization is carried out (note: I am not a database expert). Is this extent of increase usual, or could you otherwise cast light on what might be happening here ? Thank you !

    Hey Paul,

    That’s not unusual…
    InnoDB goes more for speed, than for size.

    If you don’t like that, either switch off the optimization of InnoDB tables (from the settings page of my plugin) or convert your tables to MyISAM.
