• Does the physical size of our MySQL database affect its performance?

    We have a large database that has over 15 million records and takes up about 2 GB. We're worried now that it's going to affect the performance of our MySQL database. Should the physical size of our database matter to the performance? Should we just go in and clear some of the data out? Thank you!

  • How many rows are too much in a MySQL database?

    We have a MySQL InnoDB that has over a million records. Is that too much to hold? Can my database handle that many records? We're curious because some of our queries are slower with a table that has 1,000,000 rows than one with 100 rows.

    Would it be possible to delete / create several databases in Neo4j (like MySQL)? If I can't do that, would I be able to delete all the nodes / relationships of an existing graph so I can get a clean setup for testing? Thanks so much.
