Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-108) Document performance tip for inserts in tuning guide

     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-108?page=comments#action_58573 ]
Jeff Levitt commented on DERBY-108:

I added documenation for this to the DITA converted version of the Tuning Derby documentation.

> Document performance tip for inserts in tuning guide
> ----------------------------------------------------
>          Key: DERBY-108
>          URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-108
>      Project: Derby
>         Type: Improvement
>   Components: Documentation
>     Versions:
>     Reporter: Sunitha Kambhampati
>     Priority: Minor
>      Fix For:

> Need to add this important performance tip in the tuning guide document.
> Could probably be added as Tip #8 in http://incubator.apache.org/derby/manuals/tuning/perf20.html#HDRSII-PERF-25864
> ----------------------------------------------
> Avoid inserts in autocommit mode if possible:
> Inserts can be painfully slow in autocommit mode. The reason is that each commit involves
a flush of the log to the disk  for each insert statement. The commit will not return until
a physical disk write has been executed. 
> To speed things up, there are 2 possibilities
> - Run in autocommit false mode and execute a number of inserts in one transaction and
then explicitly issue a commit. 
> - If your application allows an initial load into the table, one can use the import system
procedures to insert data into a table. 
> http://incubator.apache.org/derby/manuals/tools/tools90.html#HDRSII-IMPORT-57005.
> If loading into an empty table using these interfaces, derby will not log the
> individual inserts. The reason is  recovery understands that a backout of this
> operation is an empty table, and the data in the table is forced to
> disk before the transaction commits.
