Hello

I believe with the variable autocommit set to 0, the db will not commit each record one at a time during an insert, but commit them all at the end of the load which will be faster.

How does this affect the indexes? Does the database update the indexes after it has done all of the inserts or does it still update the index after each insert?

thanks

Until data is committed, there is nothing to index (say there is no data in the DB).
So it indexes it on commit.
