Looking at using the Mysql event scheduler to schedule potentially quite a large number of events which could be in the 100,000's of discrete events per day (possibly more). Does anyone have any experience with scheduling such volumes of events in mysql and if they encountered any pitfalls or issues with implementing things this way.

    I would say you're in a unique position. I would imagine that you'll experience some kind of issue once getting to 10s of thousands of events. – eroomydna Jan 15 '15 at 12:00
  • Are you referring to 100,000 [inserts|deletes|updates] per day? – Vérace Jan 15 '15 at 14:08
  • The application being hosted allows users to schedule micro tasks. These micro tasks would be setup to fire on a schedule that could be scheduled via MySql. Wondering if mysql could handle that or if im better off introducing another scheduling system to handle it – vcetinick Jan 15 '15 at 22:15
