There are many times when you are running on low memory and want to limit the data in your transactions. Especially, when you are sure that you don’t need all the records matching your query, you can have criteria set. Still, there could be plenty of them returned and you may want just a handful of them.
In MySQL, LIMIT is a feature that helps fetch a certain number of records matching the criteria provided:
SELECT * FROM 'database_name'.'table_name' LIMIT 10;
The value of LIMIT is defined by what you need. Use it accordingly to allow only the specified records returned so that you also benefit with faster performance and quicker processing.
