WL#2708: Speed up ALTER TABLE (part 7: Online ALTER TABLE, MyISAM)
Affects: Server-7.1 — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
See WL#2289 for task background. Overall description: - Online ALTER TABLE for MyISAM This will allow one to do reads, inserts and updates (not drop/rename) to the table while the ALTER TABLE is running. All changes will be applied to the copy of the table before the newly created ALTER TABLE replaces the old one. This will allow on to do any changes to the table except: - Rename table (Note that adding a new UNIQUE INDEX may be problematic, but not impossible)
