[mapserver-dev] OGR/MySQL Layer executes SQL query twice

Don't think so... This for drawing. Still could be an issue, but I hope not.

 Back in late 2009 (search the email list in Dec 2009 and Mar 2010) there was an effort to implement RFC 52: One-pass query processing (http://mapserver.org/development/rfc/ms-rfc-52.html), but I'm not sure if it was implemented. (Status=draft?).

  Dunno if it relates to your problem...

That's a good suggestion.  I'm running a very simple test where I use shp2img with a straightforward map file but if I used ogr2ogr that would take Mapserver out of the equation altogether.  I'll try and set up such a test and see what happens.

Is there a way to test your theory independent of MapServer using OGR only? I don't know the MapServer OGR driver well but I can't imagine this is normal.

Subject: [mapserver-dev] OGR/MySQL Layer executes SQL query twice

I'm using Mapserver 6.0.2 and GDAL 1.7.2 and have created a mapfile with an OGR/MySQL layer.  The SQL query that retrieves the spatial data is fairly slow, takes about 8-10 seconds.  I've noticed that whenever I render the layer (via the mapserv binary or via the shp2img utility) that the query executes two times.  I thought this was maybe some sort of introspection/reflection issue where perhaps OGR is trying to characterize the data somehow so I made sure to create and populate the geometry_columns table but that doesn't seem to help, it's still running the SQL query twice.
Incidentally it's also performing 2 describes and 2 'select from geometry_columns...' as well.

Is this normal and expected?

I apologize if this is a repeat, I didn't find any references to this observation in my searches.  Appreciate any help,
