I see this occurring randomly on different quries with different indexes/tables.
It appears like php is taking a lot longer than mysql's transmission time to cache the result be it bool TRUE/FALSE or a select of 1 - 50 records. While it does not happen all the time, since from the MySQL side I can see how long each step was and how long it took to even transmit the results to the php server. I am thinking it a small memory hole we do not normaly see for some reason but there are no sqlng parameters even that seem to be able to help in this situation. Also since this is is not really repeatable as is occurs only sometimes and not with a predictable frequency it would be very hard to do the roll back. Also since its in the mysql class of functions I cant even debug into it to try to see much of anything (since its c++ code not userland functions).

If it's a one-off thing it could be a spurious result (maybe someone else was doing a mysqldump when your query ran, the dump blocks your query).. What sort of mysql table is it? if it's innodb you can try it in a transaction and roll it back: begin; update blah; rollback; see how long it takes. if it takes a short time in the mysql client, then try it in a php script from your other server. -- Postgresql & php tutorials http://www.designmagick.com/ -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
