I have a IP location lookup table with 20 million rows. I can perform about 1 sequential lookup per second and I need to get it up to about 50 per second.
CREATE TABLE `ip_lookup` ( `id` int(11) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, `start_ip_int` bigint(20) NOT NULL, `end_ip_int` bigint(20) NOT NULL, `country_name` varchar(50) CHARACTER SET latin1 DEFAULT NULL, `city_name` varchar(50) CHARACTER SET latin1 DEFAULT NULL, `custom_field1` varchar(30) CHARACTER SET latin1 DEFAULT NULL, `custom_field2` varchar(20) CHARACTER SET latin1 DEFAULT NULL, `custom_field3` varchar(30) CHARACTER SET latin1 DEFAULT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (`id`), KEY `start_ip_int` (`start_ip_int`), KEY `end_ip_int` (`end_ip_int`), ) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=18245826 DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;
Maxmind supply a compiled lookup tool and their database in binary format. Lookups using that are lightning fast.
How can I create something similar for an arbitrary dataset? I'd like to load the 20M rows into some magic binary indexer and get the code to make API calls to some daemon instead of MySQL lookups. I can't use Maxmind - the data I have is customised heavily.
A lookup is simply:
select country_name, custom_field1, custom_field2 from ip_lookup where start_ip_int >= inet_aton('126.96.36.199') and inet_aton('188.8.131.52') <= end_ip_int limit 1
I'd be very grateful for any advice.
