What I'm trying to do is running a job on more than 100 million domains which haven't processed before.
I have two tables, "domain" and "domain_setting", on every batch (10.000 domains per batch) I'm getting a list of domains from domain table by checking their status on "domain_setting". At first it was working fine but now approximately 10 million domain processed and it's getting slower.
I know that my server is crappy for this kind of database, it has only 8 GB of memory and it's also shared with Apache web server (150 concurrent connections), some other small databases and some lightweight PHP applications. My innodb_buffer_pool_size is only 1 GB.
Anyway, I would like to learn if there is a better way or thoughts to write this query more efficiently or any other approach for doing this job and speed up the process. Here is my SQL query:
SELECT * FROM domain
WHERE domain_ID NOT IN (SELECT domain_ID FROM domain_setting) OR domain_ID IN (SELECT domain_ID FROM domain_setting WHERE is_keyword_checked = 0)
I must get domains which are not exist in domain_setting table OR has "is_keyword_checked = 0" value in domain_setting table. How can I optimize this query?
Thanks in advance :)
EDIT: I can rewrite my query with LEFT JOIN as
LEFT JOIN domain_setting ON domain_setting.domain_ID = domain.domain_ID
WHERE domain_setting.is_keyword_checked = 0 OR domain_setting.is_keyword_checked IS NULL
ORDER BY domain.domain_ID ASC
but the main problem here seems full table scan. I can run it backwards by ORDER by domain.domain_ID DESC for recent added records and I can get them very fast. But still needs to scan full table if you didn't run it for a while and if recent records became more than millions of rows. So, is there any way to avoid full table scan for such work?
