Rt with mysql 5.7 is very slow


#1

I’m using rt 4.4.2, about 2 mln tickets, about 10 mln attachments.

Was using it with mysql 5.6 and sphinx for fulltext searching. Now migrated to mysql 5.7 and builtin fulltext search.

Unfortunately the problem is that mysql fulltext search is way slower than sphinx. Waaaay slower.

Simple “test” entered in upper-right search box in rt makes rt do a sql query which takes 14 minutes to finish (below) and that’s not all, it only counts tickets.

Is such behaviour expected and what can be improved?

11:13:44 mysql{17}> explain SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT main.id) FROM Tickets main JOIN Queues Queues_4  ON ( Queues_4.id = main.Queue ) JOIN Transactions Transactions_1  ON ( Transactions_1.ObjectType = 'RT::Ticket' ) AND ( Transactions_1.ObjectId = main.id ) JOIN Attachments Attachments_2  ON ( Attachments_2.TransactionId = Transactions_1.id ) JOIN AttachmentsIndex AttachmentsIndex_3  ON ( AttachmentsIndex_3.id = Attachments_2.id )  WHERE (main.IsMerged IS NULL) AND (main.Status != 'deleted') AND (main.Type = 'ticket') AND ( (  ( MATCH(AttachmentsIndex_3.Content) AGAINST ('test' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AND AttachmentsIndex_3.Content IS NOT NULL )  )  AND  (  (  ( Queues_4.Lifecycle = 'assets' AND  ( main.Status = 'new' OR main.Status = 'allocated' OR main.Status = 'in-use' )  )  OR  ( Queues_4.Lifecycle = 'default' AND  ( main.Status = 'new' OR main.Status = 'open' OR main.Status = 'stalled' )  )  OR  ( Queues_4.Lifecycle = 'approvals' AND  ( main.Status = 'new' OR main.Status = 'open' OR main.Status = 'stalled' )  )  )  ) );

Now the fun part. It doesn’t seem fulltext part to be the issue because

which is fast, so the problem lies in the rest of query.

Does it use indexes for anyone else? Run above explain as a test.

Added
CREATE INDEX Grou ON CachedGroupMembers(GroupId);
CREATE INDEX Dis ON CachedGroupMembers(Disabled);

and now new indexes are being used:

For me rt is fast enough with that change. First index helped a lot.
