  • Optimize read performance with cursor based queries
    Optimize read performance with cursor based queries
    Used Shopware Version: 6.5.1.1 This is more like a performance improvement than a real bug. We've found the migration assistants data readers to be really slow when dealing with huge amounts of data (like in millions of orders/customers/products). And especially getting slower and slower the higher the offset gets. We've tracked this down to be an issue with MySQL itself when one uses offset based pagination. This article describes it very well, but there are several other sources around the internet: https://ramzialqrainy.medium.com/faster-pagination-in-mysql-you-are-probably-doing-it-wrong-d9c9202bbfd8 tl;dr: MySQL reads all data prior to the used offset to determine wether it needs to return the given data or not. With removing the offset and instead adding a WHERE condition like id > $lastSeenId the data can be filtered before reading it therefor it's much faster. In a local test I could reduce the read time for a single query from about 3.3 seconds to 0.7 milliseconds for the same result. And that will be done around 20000 times for a dataset of two million orders for example. Suggested change: 1. Save the lastSeenId to the MigrationContext instead of the offset, start with 0 for the first batch 1. Change `SwagMigrationAssistant\Profile\Shopware\Gateway\Local\Reader\AbstractReader::fetchIdentifiers`. Remove the offset and instead add a where condition using the lastSeenId 1. Read the highest ID from the result and set it as lastSeenId in the context This is only a rough description to get an idea of the improvement. I guess it will need some tweaks, especially when using the admin to start a migration. Also it might need adjustments to be compatible with reading via database or API. Maybe it's possible to make this change optional or as default only for cli based migrations. This affects all readers of all profiles and can be applied to all source systems that either have a numeric primary key or some sort of autoincrement value in the database.

  • Admin extensions API
    Admin extensions API
    Currently the extension system of the Shopware Administration is based on Vue.js and Twig.js in combination. 3rd party developer can use twig.js block system to hook into every part of the administration. This technology offers a lot of downsides for Shopware as we are not able update and optimize our admin as fast as we would like to. Nearly every change of our ui components can break 3rd party extensions. With this epic we want to introduce a new way of extending Shopware Administration via declarative javascript, easy to learn and use and working the same way for self-hosted or cloud extensions: the extension api. Developers should rely on our extension api methods to extend the administration and do not need to take care of templating, block overriding and further things. They just can trust the methods to extend the administration as Shopware can maintain the components, make changes to templates, add features and so on without breaking the code. Our long term goal is to offer a complete extension api which offers all devs the freedom to extend the admin to their needs without the downsides of template and block overrides.
