We access mysql using squirrel from a remote site. It gets painfully slow for use executing simple indexed queries. We looked with tcpdump and found that with each mysql resultset the server sends a lot of information which we might do without.
We tried to disable the settings in alias->Properties but when we click 'Connect database to refresh schema table' nothing happens. We are using Squirrel client version 3.4.0 with mysql-connector-java-5.0.8-bin.jar.
Has anyone been through this problem before or help us how to go about it..
