in reply to Fetch Mysql huge database

The main idea behind this database thingie is that you do not need to fetch the whole dataset to client. If you do need it, which is a rare case, it is a bad system design. In most cases, however, you need only a small subset of stored data, and your job is to select it properly.

Second, the mysql server itself can operate too slow in some circumstances -- e.g. no index on 'UserName' field can produce inappropriate time consumption. How many time it takes when you select above dataset from mysql client itself?

Third, you need a space, a memory to store this dataset locally on your client; did you count how much memory do you need to store your 34748806 rows?
