Cron job performance of aggregate_sales_report_bestsellers_data is slow on sales_order and sales_order_item database tables.

To resolve this, the main data query that grabs data for the report has been re-written to a more efficient form. It now uses a sub-query to determine data subset.

In order for the sub-query to function as fast as possible, a new index was added for the sales_order database table: SALES_ORDER_STORE_STATE_CREATED based on store_id, state, and created_at columns.


Ensure a large number of orders daily.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Execute the aggregate_sales_report_bestsellers_data cron job.
  2. Check the data to be displayed in the Admin dashboard, under the Bestsellers tab.

Expected results:

Quantity per source under the Configuration tab shouldn’t be empty.

Actual results:

Quantity per source under the Configuration tab is empty.
