Improving a query (peformance)

Hello,

I have the following query (great circle computation):

SELECT id, city_name, ( 6371 * acos( cos( radians(37.102528) ) * cos( radians( lat ) ) * cos( radians( lng ) - radians(25.376093) ) + sin( radians(37.102528) ) * sin( radians( lat ) ) ) ) AS distance
FROM city_names HAVING distance < 25 OR distance IS NULL ORDER BY distance LIMIT 0 , 200;

My table has about 15M records and this query takes from 13 to 22 sec to execute. I have an index on lat and long fields (both fields on the same index).

Are there any ways to improve the speed of this query?

create materialized view with the above query for sharp increase in performance of the select statement.

Do you have a small number of locations from which the distance is calculated?
If so, an additional column in the table for each destination would allow you to pre-calculate (in 22s) and then run the calculation.

If there are multiple centre points, you should see an improvement by:
1. Precalculate radians ( fixed-value ) - just multiply by pi/180.
2. Precalculate sin(radians(lat)) - (same for cos and lng) and store the values in the table
3. Move the Earth-size multiplier (6371) into the having clause: HAVING distance < 25/6371

Note: if you're looking at small distances, you may want to use the Haversine formula, but that may not be quicker.

Better (but I have no experience of it) might be the MySQL 5 Spacial Extensions - http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/spatial-extensions.html.

Hi!

For this query to have optimal performance you should create an index like this
CREATE INDEX city_dist_ix ON TABLE city_names (lat,long, city_name,id)  USING BTREE;

This will make the query index only query and hopefully a little bit faster. :)
