Index tables after loading data

The attached patch makes yum-metadata-parser index SQLite tables after loading them - inserting into indexed tables is slower than inserting to unindexed ones and later indexing them.  The diff is a bit hard to read, but it just moves index creation out of create table functions into ones of their own, there are no other changes.

This provides a nice speedup, below are results on my x86_64 AMD64 3200+, 2G RAM, F-9 box when doing createrepos on a couple of days old Rawhide i386 repo, taken from createrepo -v, customized so that it additionally outputs timestamps for the SQLite db operations only (w/o bzip2 and other things done after the db is created).  Values below are Xs / Ys so that X includes the bzip2 and friends part of createrepo, Y only the db operations part.


- other:      8s /  2s
- filelists: 48s / 32s
- primary:   17s /  9s
= total:     73s / 43s


- other:      8s /  2s (no changes)
- filelists: 29s / 12s (much faster)
- primary:   14s /  6s (somewhat faster)
= total:     51s / 20s (quite a bit faster)

As an additional bonus, the patched version creates somewhat smaller databases:


11M     repodata/filelists.sqlite.bz2
3.7M    repodata/other.sqlite.bz2
7.0M    repodata/primary.sqlite.bz2


11M     repodata/filelists.sqlite.bz2
3.5M    repodata/other.sqlite.bz2
6.4M    repodata/primary.sqlite.bz2

Create indexes with IF NOT EXISTS

Companion patch to be applied on top of the previous one: I'm not sure if there's a scenario in which indexes would already exist after applying the previous patch, but I suppose creating them with IF NOT EXISTS does not hurt in any case.

Just to make sure I understand this - does this mean the indexes will get created on the client machine? Doesn't that mean we're offloading all the time onto the user?
Comment 3 seth vidal 2008-09-08 11:45:53 EDT
Or are you just making the indexes in the repo-side AFTER all the other data has been inserted first?
