I wrote code that inserts about 15 millions rows into tables in MyISAM and InnoDB for comparsion.
MyISAM and InnoDB are set up with no optimization configuration in /etc/mysql/my.cnf.
And tables are created with no indexes.
Insertion are done using statements like
INSERT INTO Table (columnA, columnB, columnC) VALUES (?, ?, ?)..." (10,000 (?, ?, ?)s) db.Exec(stmt, valueArgs...)
valueArgs being the actual
It is widely believed that MyISAM is faster than InnoDB in insertion.
Baron Schwartz, author of the book High Performance MySQL, explained why in this post Mysql: Insert performance INNODB vs MYISAM.
However, in my experiment, I found out that InnoDB is actually faster than MyISAM. Could anyone give me some insights?
