lol_dba is a small package of rake tasks that scan your application models and displays a list of columns that probably should be indexed. Also, it can generate .sql migration scripts. Most of the code come from rails_indexes and migration_sql_generator.

Quick example

To use lol_dba in the easiest way possible you have to do two things:

gem install lol_dba

Then run one of the following commands...

To display a migration for adding/removing all necessary indexes based on associations:

lol_dba db:find_indexes

To generate .sql files for your migrations inside db/migrate_sql folder:

lol_dba db:migrate_sql # defaults to all migrations
lol_dba db:migrate_sql[pending] # only pending migrations
lol_dba db:migrate_sql[20120221205526] # generate sql only for migration 20120221205526

Not-so-quick example

If you want to use lol_dba with rake, you should do a few more steps:

Add lol_dba to your Gemfile

gem "lol_dba"

Run the install command

bundle install

Use it the same way you use other rake commands

rake db:find_indexes
rake db:migrate_sql # defaults to all migrations
rake db:migrate_sql[pending] # only pending migrations
rake db:migrate_sql[20120221205526] # generate sql only for migration 20120221205526

Compatibility

Compatible with Ruby 2.x and Rails 4.x (for now, we still support Ruby 1.9 and Rails 3.x).

About primary_key

The primary key is always indexed. This is generally true for all storage engines that at all supports indices.

For this reason, we no longer suggest to add indexes to primary keys.

Tests

To run lol_dba tests, just clone the repo and run:

bundle install && rake

to run the tests.
