Oh wise Perl magicians
I have a query that looks something like this :
The 'explain' shows a good and nice run (no full table scans), and in mySQL it takes about 3 seconds to run (about 130.000 records) using mysql -u user -p database < q.sql > output.txt
When doing this from whithin Perl however,
It takes about 12 seconds to run (Only the prepare and the execute, i did not even loop over the resultset).
Any idea on how to speed this up? Whit a smaller resultset, it takes about .003 seconds to prepare / execute.
I know DBI should be able to do mutch better, any ideas on how i can get a better result?
I run this on an UML (user mode linux), so there is a lot of overhead in the disk io, however, the same problem occurs on a 'normal' debian distribution, the difference is big. (2 sec - 8 sec)
The resultset of the query looks like this:
Ah FOUND IT!!! Here is the answer!!!
