Re: doubt about index


That's a strange index. In InnoDB, tables are organized by primary key, so ALL indexes contain primary keys values.

In other storage engines... well, I can't think a use case when that index would make sense. Maybe a more realistic example would help :)

 hi guys, i`m with a doubt...
 when i have a primary key i know that's a unique key
 when i have a index with primary key + any other column,
 does mariadb
 consider that it's unique too?
 if it is defined as unique key yes
 what is "index with primary key + any other
 for examplecreate table
 x(i int, b int,c int, d
 int , e int, ... primary key(i),key
 the test index is primary key (i
 column) + any other column (b,c,d,e,...)
 you have two keys in that case and the select uses one of
 themyeap but some search algorithms use
 unique key/non unique key information to improve search
 right? does it consider that any index that
 contains a unique index columns + anyother column as
 i`m thinking more about SELECT optimization
 how does it matter if a key is unique or not for select
 select "where i=1" should
 return 0/1 rows (it's unique), 
 "where b=1" should return 0+ rows,
 but "where b=1 and i=1" should return 0/1
