Amazon Aurora 改善 ALTER TABLE 時增加 column 的速度

Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 提昇了增加 column 操作的速度:「Amazon Aurora Supports Fast DDL Operations」,細節可以在「Amazon Aurora Under the Hood: Fast DDL」這邊看到。

這次加速是限制在 nullable 欄位:

MySQL 5.6 (Online DDL Overview) 與 5.7 (Online DDL Overview) 都有列出增加 column 需要 rebuild table。

對於一般的 MySQL server 來說,增加 column 這種事情通常都會用 pt-online-schema-change 解決,Amazon Aurora 這個改善算是讓 DBA 可以輕鬆一些...
