I use following query frequently:
SELECT * FROM table WHERE Timestamp > [SomeTime] AND Timestamp < [SomeOtherTime] and publish = 1 and type = 2 order by Timestamp
I would like to optimize this query, and I am thinking about put timestamp as part of primary key for clustered index, I think if timestamp is part of primary key , data inserted in table has write to disk sequentially by timestamp field.Also I think this improve my query a lot, but am not sure if this would help.
table has 3-4 million+ rows. timestamp field never changed. I use mysql 5.6.11
Anothet point is : if this is improve my query , it is better to use timestamp(4 byte in mysql 5.6) or datetime(5 byte in mysql 5.6)?
