The BLACKHOLE Storage Engine

The BLACKHOLE storage engine acts as a “black hole” that accepts data but throws it away and does not store it. Retrievals always return an empty result:

mysql> CREATE TABLE test(i INT, c CHAR(10)) ENGINE = BLACKHOLE;

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.03 sec)

 

mysql> INSERT INTO test VALUES(1,’record one’),(2,’record two’);

Query OK, 2 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Records: 2  Duplicates: 0  Warnings: 0

 

mysql> SELECT * FROM test;

Empty set (0.00 sec).
