There are two possible causes, perhaps both of them at the same time:

  • If there is no index in any of link1.link_from, url1.urlid, link1.link_to, and url2.urlid, then the join takes much longer than it should. If this is the case, add an appropriate index, using an ALTER TABLE statement.
  • Your query is returning an huge amount of rows, which are clogging both your server and client memory. The reason is that MySQL default mode of fetching is All-At-Once (mysql_store_result). You can affect this behavior by setting the appropriate mode identifier after preparing the statement:
    my $sth = $dbh->prepare($sql); $sth->{"mysql_use_result"} = 1;
    Be aware that this mode requires that you either fetch all the records or use a "finish" method before issuing another request to the server.
    See MySQL manual for an explanation of this behavior (it's related to the C API) and DBD::mysql for more details on this modifier in the DBD interface.
    With "mysql_use_result", as opposed to "mysql_store_result", the server won't send any record to the client until you use a "fetch" method. What happens with the default mode is that the server sends all the records at once, and the "fetch" method is just browsing a local copy of the data.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
