InnoDB vs MyISAM Performance

This article will guide you on the performance of InnoDB and MyISAM. MyISAM will out-perform InnoDB on large #tables that require vastly more read activity versus write activity. MyISAM's readabilities outshine InnoDB because locking the entire table is quicker than figuring out which rows are locked in the table.

InnoDB is better option while you are dealing with larger #database because it supports transactions, volume while MyISAM is suitable for small project. 

InnoDB and MYISAM , are storage engines for MySQL . 


InnoDB and #MYISAM differ on their locking implementation: 

i. #InnoDB locks the particular row in the table, and MyISAM locks the entire MySQL table.

ii. As InnoDB supports row-level locking which means inserting and updating is much faster as compared with MyISAM.


Which storage engine is best in #MySQL:

1. InnoDB: The default option in MySQL 5.7, InnoDB is a robust storage engine that offers:

2. MyISAM: The functionality that sets MyISAM apart is its capability for:

3. NDB (or NDBCLUSTER): If a clustered environment is where your database will be working, NDB is the storage engine of choice.
