When executing the following in workbench or in code, the Drop table/Create Table works ok. The Select statement stalls when executed in one go. If the table is MyIsam, it works ok. If executed [edited] the very first time a few seconds later (5-10s) it executes in 15 ms, no cache involved. Anyone can explain this behaviour ?

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS tmp_vlanendpoints;
CREATE TABLE tmp_vlanendpoints (
  routeId INTEGER,
  INDEX routeId (routeId)
  ) AS port_sourcerefcode,
FROM tmp_getdatamultipointtrails
WHERE nodeType='PE' 
    OR (numEDDs=1 AND nodeType='EDD')
    OR (numEDDs=0 AND nodeType='AGG' AND linkId IS NULL);

# Failing SELECT when executed in sequence. Takes 15 ms if executed alone.
    veacpe.HostNameOrIp AS cpe_a,
    veacpe.port_sourcerefcode AS port_acpe,
    veape.HostNameOrIp AS pe_a,
    veape.port_sourcerefcode AS port_ape,
    vezcpe.HostNameOrIp AS cpe_z,
    vezcpe.port_sourcerefcode AS port_zcpe,
    vezpe.HostNameOrIp AS pe_z,
    vezpe.port_sourcerefcode AS port_zpe,
FROM tmp_evcdata evc
JOIN tmp_vlanendpoints veacpe ON veacpe.routeId=evc.routeId_a AND veacpe.nodeType<>'PE'

  • " If executed a few seconds later (5-10s) it executes in 15 ms" - very likely because intermediate query results were still sitting in cache when you ran the query the second time. – Victor Di Leo Aug 28 '18 at 14:27
  • Please post SHOW CREATE TABLE tmp_getdatamultipointtrails and select count(*) from tmp_getdatamultipointtrails and select * from tmp_getdatamultipointtrails limit 2. – Ivanov Sep 4 '18 at 9:10
  • @VictorDiLeo it's not possible to have such a magic cache in MySQL – Ivanov Sep 4 '18 at 9:13

    I should not have used "intermediate" in my comment, but query cache is certainly available in MySQL: 1) dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/query-cache-operation.html 2) percona.com/blog/2015/01/02/… 3) Googling "mysql query runs faster second time cache" will show this is a common question. – Victor Di Leo Sep 4 '18 at 14:40
  • As edited, no cache is involved. We have to wait 5-10s that the initial create table finished something, otherwise it stalls completely. – Jean-Pierre B Sep 5 '18 at 7:52
