How does Magento Flat Catalog works

Posted on July 15th, 2014 | Posted by admin

Difference between EAV and Flat Catalog

In EAV database model, data are stored in different smaller tables rather than storing in a single table.

product name is stored in catalog_product_entity_varchar table
product id is stored in catalog_product_entity_int table
product price is stored in catalog_product_entity_decimal table

EAV database model is used by Magento for easy upgrade and development as this model gives more flexibility to play with data and attributes.

When flat catalog is enabled in Magento then all the above product attributes (id, name, price) are kept in one table named like catalog_product_flat. Then Magento fetches product data from the flat table rather than joining all the other smaller tables.
