MySQL 5.1 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Limitations Relating to Performance in MySQL Cluster Limitations Relating to Performance in MySQL Cluster

The following performance issues are specific to or especially pronounced in MySQL Cluster:

  • Range scans. There are query performance issues due to sequential access to the NDB storage engine; it is also relatively more expensive to do many range scans than it is with either MyISAM or InnoDB.

  • Reliability of Records in range. The Records in range statistic is available but is not completely tested or officially supported. This may result in nonoptimal query plans in some cases. If necessary, you can employ USE INDEX or FORCE INDEX to alter the execution plan. See Section 8.9.3, “Index Hints”, for more information on how to do this.

  • Unique hash indexes. Unique hash indexes created with USING HASH cannot be used for accessing a table if NULL is given as part of the key.
