Why you should take care of MySQL data types

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

A customer reported last month that MySQL does a full table scan (FTS) if a query was filtered by a INT value on a VARCHAR column. First I told him that this is not true any more because MySQL has fixed this behaviour long time ago. He showed me that I was wrong:

Impact of column types on MySQL JOIN performance

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

In our MySQL trainings and consulting engagements we tell our customers always to use the smallest possible data type to get better query performance. Especially for the JOIN columns.

Example 1

Undefined

CREATE TABLE `order` (
  id INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY
, name VARCHAR(64) NOT NULL
) ENGINE = InnoDB;

INSERT INTO `order` VALUES
  (NULL, 'Test order 1')
, (NULL, 'Test order 2')
, (NULL, 'Test order 3');


CREATE TABLE pos (
  id INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY
, order_id INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL
, name VARCHAR(64) NOT NULL
, amount SMALLINT NOT NULL
, price DECIMAL (6,2) NOT NULL
, status TINYINT NULL
) ENGINE = InnoDB;

INSERT INTO pos VALUES
  (null, 1, 'Schrauben', 50, 0.10, 0)
, (null, 1, 'Muttern', 50, 0.10, 0)
