• Gave us a huge improvement on site with a large postmeta table (more than 33 million rows).

    A third party plugin was making 2 multi-join queries with the postmeta table (10 joins on the table). Each query was taking 4-5 minutes to complete.

    After indexing those queries dropped to just 0.5 seconds to complete.

    Haven’t checked the size increase on the DB, but the speed improvement is fantastic.

    That’s great to hear. Thanks for letting us know your results.

    (The new keys probably do take a lot of SSD / HDD space in your DBMS, but that’s the classic time-space tradeoff. Although processors aren’t getting faster, SSD / HDD space is getting dramatically cheaper with each passing year.)

    @olliejones just gotta mention here that I really like your attitude and your writing skills. You are marvelous, and what you are doing for the WordPress community will be remembered. Thank you for what you do!
