But it’s doing a full table scan on a single partition, isn’t that unreasonable?

The execution plan for the partitioned table is not quite the same as explained on the official website.

Looking at the execution plan, there is indeed a problem. The WHERE filter was not pushed down to TiKV, but instead, a full table scan was performed and the filtering was done on the TiDB server.

It looks like TiKV has already filtered out 1,882,242 rows of data, which should be the amount of data in one partition, right?

It didn’t push down to the KV nodes, it did a full scan.

Have you enabled the dynamic partition pruning feature?

If it is enabled, it should theoretically prune the partitions correctly and only scan the data that meets the conditions.

It looks like there is a bug. How much data is in the table in total?

Following up, I encountered this problem as well.

The TiDB server has statistics information cache, and some of the cache might have issues. Try restarting the TiDB server.
