MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Optimizing DML Statements

9.2.2 Optimizing DML Statements

This section explains how to speed up the data manipulation language (DML) statements, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE. Traditional OLTP applications and modern web applications typically do many small DML operations, where concurrency is vital. Data analysis and reporting applications typically run DML operations that affect many rows at once, where the main considerations is the I/O to write large amounts of data and keep indexes up-to-date. For inserting and updating large volumes of data (known in the industry as ETL, for extract-transform-load), sometimes you use other SQL statements or external commands, that mimic the effects of INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements.
