March 17 Webinar: How Indexes Work in MySQL

Posted by Anna Navatsyk on Mar 3, 2015 6:22:00 AM

MySQL offers a few different types of indexes and uses them in a variety of ways. There’s a lot to know about the various kinds of indexes and how they interact with the storage engines, and it’s all very important for query optimization. A few examples are listed below:

  • The “leftmost prefix rule”

  • Clustered primary indexes versus secondary indexes

  • B-Tree and hash

  • New types of indexes such as LSM and Fractal Trees

  • Newer features in the query optimizer and executor in MySQL 5.6 and 5.7

You will leave this webinar with a better understanding of how MySQL and its storage engines use indexes to speed up queries, and how you can improve query performance with basic and advanced index optimizations.
