Best Practices

Here are some best practices to manage performance tradeoffs between transactions and analytics using SingleStore Kai.

Create Indexes

To improve query performance, SingleStore recommends creating indexes on the collections. Refer to Understanding Keys and Indexes in SingleStore for more information.

Faster Transactions (But Lower Resilience)

SingleStore enables retryWrites by default, which provides higher resilience against network errors. Disabling the retryWrites setting will improve latency for write operations, but the application might need to manually handle errors due to transient network conditions.


SingleStore recommends leaving retryWrites enabled for ingesting data.
