How does a database handle pagination?

How does a database handle pagination?

It doesn’t. First, a database is a collection of related data, so I assume you mean DBMS or database language.

Second, pagination is generally a function of the front-end and/or middleware, not the database layer.

But some database languages provide helpful facilities that aide in implementing pagination. For example, many SQL dialects provide LIMIT and OFFSET clauses that can be used to emit up to n rows starting at a given row number. I.e., a “page” of rows. If the query results are sorted via ORDER BY and are generally unchanged between successive invocations, then that can be used to implement pagination.

That may not be the most efficient or effective implementation, though.

How does a database handle pagination?

So how do you propose pagination should be done?

On context of web apps , let’s say there are 100 mn users. One cannot dump all the users in response.

Cache database query results in the middleware layer using Redis or similar and serve out pages of rows from that.

What if you have 30, 000 rows plus, do you fetch all of that from the database and cache in Redis?

I feel the most efficient solution is still offset and limit. It doesn’t make sense to use a database and then end up putting all of your data in Redis especially data that changes a lot. Redis is not for storing all of your data.

AI Unraveled: Demystifying Frequently Asked Questions on Artificial Intelligence (OpenAI, ChatGPT, Google Bard, Generative AI, Discriminative AI, xAI, LLMs, GPUs, Machine Learning, NLP, Promp Engineering)

If you have large data set, you should use offset and limit, getting only what is needed from the database into main memory (and maybe caching those in Redis) at any point in time is very efficient.

With 30,000 rows in a table, if offset/limit is the only viable or appropriate restriction, then that’s sometimes the way to go.

More often, there’s a much better way of restricting 30,000 rows via some search criteria that significantly reduces the displayed volume of rows — ideally to a single page or a few pages (which are appropriate to cache in Redis.)

It’s unlikely (though it does happen) that users really want to casually browse 30,000 rows, page by page. More often, they want this one record, or these small number of records.

Question: This is a general question that applies to MySQL, Oracle DB or whatever else might be out there.

I know for MySQL there is LIMIT offset,size; and for Oracle there is ‘ROW_NUMBER’ or something like that.

But when such ‘paginated’ queries are called back to back, does the database engine actually do the entire ‘select’ all over again and then retrieve a different subset of results each time? Or does it do the overall fetching of results only once, keeps the results in memory or something, and then serves subsets of results from it for subsequent queries based on offset and size?

If it does the full fetch every time, then it seems quite inefficient.

If it does full fetch only once, it must be ‘storing’ the query somewhere somehow, so that the next time that query comes in, it knows that it has already fetched all the data and just needs to extract next page from it. In that case, how will the database engine handle multiple threads? Two threads executing the same query?

something will be quick or slow without taking measurements, and complicate the code in advance to download 12 pages at once and cache them because “it seems to me that it will be faster”.

Answer: First of all, do not make assumptions in advance whether something will be quick or slow without taking measurements, and complicate the code in advance to download 12 pages at once and cache them because “it seems to me that it will be faster”.

YAGNI principle – the programmer should not add functionality until deemed necessary.
Do it in the simplest way (ordinary pagination of one page), measure how it works on production, if it is slow, then try a different method, if the speed is satisfactory, leave it as it is.

From my own practice – an application that retrieves data from a table containing about 80,000 records, the main table is joined with 4-5 additional lookup tables, the whole query is paginated, about 25-30 records per page, about 2500-3000 pages in total. Database is Oracle 12c, there are indexes on a few columns, queries are generated by Hibernate. Measurements on production system at the server side show that an average time (median – 50% percentile) of retrieving one page is about 300 ms. 95% percentile is less than 800 ms – this means that 95% of requests for retrieving a single page is less that 800ms, when we add a transfer time from the server to the user and a rendering time of about 0.5-1 seconds, the total time is less than 2 seconds. That’s enough, users are happy.

And some theory – see this answer to know what is purpose of Pagination pattern

  • Best database/system architecture for a large number of real-time high rate IOT devices
    by /u/NeegzmVaqu1 (Database) on April 18, 2024 at 2:41 pm

    What would be the best database or architecture of database + data engine for the following requirements: I will receive IOT sensor data that are almost always ordered in terms of timestamp of the signal itself. The exception being if there's network delay between different packets, so they will have to be inserted between the last 1-3 signals most likely. If no changes occur, latest row will be updated instead of doing a new insert. A signal is received from each IOT sensor every 1-5 seconds with a total of ~100,000 devices. Each IOT sensor signal is between 200 B - 2000 B, with an average size of around 500B. Each IOT sensor returns a well-defined set of fields. There are around 200 possible types of fields returned by the IOT sensor, but although it can send all 200 fields, each IOT sensor usually sends a set of 20-40 fields out of those 200 depending on user configuration. So, in terms of storage, most columns for each row will be NULL. A smaller subset of around 10 fields will always be provided by all IOT sensors Availability matters more than consistency since most data will be consumed by the client for real-time monitoring and not through the database. Historical reports queries from the database will mostly be well into the past so eventual consistency is enough. Old data (let's say 3+ months) is deleted. I need partition tolerance with distributed writes on all nodes. Conclusions until now: Partition tolerance needed Availability > consistency NULL fields should take no space Row oriented storage on disk, so that write speed is high Based on these, I am considering Cassandra/ScyllaDB with partitions based on device ID and day like 01_01_2024. However, I have some concerns with regards to query patterns: Users can retrieve a list of complete signals over a time range, like a 1-week period, for a specific device. Parallel queries across the different partitions solves this. This query would be the most used by users to get a history playback of sensor data. Basic aggregation/conditionals over a specific device like a displaying graph of a certain field with 1-hour averages as 1 data point over the span of 1 month or more. Could use parallel queries also but it's less performant since we have to go over so many more partitions and blocks in disk unnecessarily as we only need 1 field at a time for each query, so something like a column-oriented database solves this... but not Cassandra/ScyllaDB. Basic aggregation/conditionals over all or many devices over a specific field like points where a custom limit was exceeded over a time range of 1 month. Benefits from a column-oriented database as well. What is the best database(s)/architecture for this or maybe it is all solvable with Cassandra/ScyllaDB? submitted by /u/NeegzmVaqu1 [link] [comments]

  • Best database for matchmaking - requires high connection limits and complex querying capabilities
    by /u/izner82 (Database) on April 18, 2024 at 1:59 pm

    I'm seeking advice on the most suitable database solution for a matchmaking feature within my application. I've tried different solutions before but have always hit a roadblock before I can finish my stuff. I need a database that has: Complex querying capabilities (e.g. check if array field contains any or all items in the array provided) Has high connection limits Cheap Note that data are short lived, if a user enters the matchmaking screen...the backend would register them in the database, once a match has been found both user shall be deleted in the table. Row level locking is also needed as to make sure that the user we're querying for is untouchable by different concurrent users. Storage size isn't actually that important since data are short lived anyways, and we're only expecting <100k rows at most. Here are the issues I have faced before: I have used DynamoDB but because of its querying limitations like not having the ability to check if an array field contains an array I have decided to steer away from it As for querying, PostgreSQL seems to be the best, can lock rows which is good for a highly concurrent environment such as matchmaking and it has the querying capabilities I just need. The only problem with it is that most managed services I can find has very limited connection limits, for a matchmaking feature I'm expecting tons of users connecting, querying each other simultaneously. As for GameLift FlexMatch, it's expensive as get billed $1 per matchmaking hour, imagine a user not being able to find a match for 30 seconds, now imagine thousands of them experiencing the same thing. I think this occurrence would be common on my matchmaking feature since it would be used for a dating app in which male users are dominant than female users. submitted by /u/izner82 [link] [comments]

  • Choice of multi tenant database architecture for Saas inventory management app ?
    by /u/Prestigious_Ebb5260 (Database) on April 17, 2024 at 1:55 am

    I am building an inventory management SaaS for mobile and web. I’ll be managing with a single web server. But for db, I am stuck between if I should go for Approach 1: A Database per organisation Vs Approach 2: One database shared between all organisations where each record in every table is identified by an organisation id My analysis so far is, Approach 1: - data isolated completely (peace of mind) - customer with low data will not be affected by an adjacent high data customer - moving the db around to different server can get easy - though not an intention, can convert to a custom solution at later point have no idea about scalability- is it difficult? managing backups could be difficult? Approach 2: - data isolation created with row level security of Postgres (less peace of mind though an unrealistic fear at times) - performance issues due to mixing up of high and low usage customers - easy maintenance - easy scalable ? - managing backups is easy What else am I missing ? Please do suggest me a choice about it ? submitted by /u/Prestigious_Ebb5260 [link] [comments]

  • Looking for general guidance on data separation and what you use when it comes to your apps (Dapper, EF, other)
    by /u/80sPimpNinja (Database) on April 16, 2024 at 8:51 pm

    I am building an app in Maui and was going to use SQLite as the database. I want to be able to also expand this app to and possibly a Windows application at a later date. I want to use SQLite as the database and want to keep it as independent as I can from the main application. So down the road I can add in a different DB if I need to . I was reading the Maui docs and they suggest using the sqlite-net-pcl nuget package as the ORM, possibly because it is tailored for mobile apps? But the problem I see with this is I wouldn't be able to use this ORM for or another framework that isn't mobile focused. So would I be better off using Dapper? or EF? for the sake of expansion and the ease of having it work on all frameworks? Or is there a way I can use sqlite-net-pcl with all frameworks? I have used Dapper before but never tried EF. Wasn't sure if one of these options would be a better solution. Thank you for the guidance! submitted by /u/80sPimpNinja [link] [comments]

  • Deadlock prevention with upgradable keys
    by /u/Volume999 (Database) on April 15, 2024 at 12:25 pm

    Hello! I am building a database system and want to add Deadlock prevention (Wait-die), but have some questions regarding consistency and aborts. Let's say I have T1 and T2, S(X) - read lock, U(X) - update lock, W(X) - write lock: T1: R(X) W(X) T2: R(X) W(X) Both transactions will receive an S(X) lock and then will try to upgrade to W(X). This, of course, leads to deadlock (sad for deadlock prevention mechanism) My question: How do I deal with this? Transactions release R(X) and try to get W(X) - Consistency violation I thought about adding a U(X) lock that is exclusive to U(X) and W(X) but is not limiting S(X). So T1 will receive U(X) and will be able to upgrade to W(X). The problem is what to do with T2? I cannot let it wait for T1 to finish, because then the consistency is violated. Should I then abort and restart T2 instead? Another issue is, how to understand which type of lock to receive - provided I can't infer from the API the access pattern (kind of like how updates use U(X) lock in SQL databases) I haven't been able to find an answer online on this matter, but if anyone knows some - would also be appreciated! submitted by /u/Volume999 [link] [comments]
