Y'all are going to have to get new doors, so PrismX can go home today.... unless you lock him in the server room or something...

(that said, I have to admit I enjoy seeing all of the devs posting, and showing a sense of humor)
Locking up Prism X doesn't work, he somehow manages to get out no matter what. Smile

My shop uses Oracle, MSSQL, and MySQL. A few years ago when we started using MySQL, we weighed it against Postgres, and in the end Postgres was 3x - 8x slower than MySQL out of the box. (Before tuning and indexing).

Has it changed all that much in the last few years?

PostgreSQL gives you much better overall performance than MySQL now, hands down. I pretty much don't bother with MySQL anymore. The only way MySQL would out perform PostgreSQL is if you are strictly read-only, and even then I have my doubts about that too.

You need to tune your installations before testing, testing on un-tuned installations doesn't give you results that are meaningful.

I'm no database guy, but I'd be looking at what the stock exchanges use if I didn't want use MS software.

A war that would’ve involved 20,000 players, 75% of nullsec space, and hundreds of supercapitals was halted not by diplomacy, but by a game mechanic so dreadful that those who have experienced it previously have no desire to do so again. - Fix POS & SOV
