I'm excited I just discovered a way to remove unused MySQL indexes and I wanted to share it with you guys.
I'm following the tutorial here: https://www.percona.com/blog/2012/06/30/find-unused-indexes/
We happened to have already been using a Percona-fork of MySQL. It just so happens that Percona has been our database consultants for over a decade.
Either way, I've been trying to figure out how to do this for awhile now, and so I'm a bit excited and wanted to share. That, and the fact that I'm working on some backend stuff that required me to start a new article in order to test it out.
