Relational Database Index Design and the Optimizers PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Relational Database Index Design and the Optimizers free pdf The most common reason for performance problems with database applications is inadequate indexing. This book covers index design, one aspect of database tuning. It will teach the reader how to improve the performance of relational databases (IBM DB2, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and others) with indexes designed for current hardware (gigabytes of central storage, large disk drives with RAID 5, etc...). Other common reasons are poor table design, SQL optimizer and long lock waits, all covered in this book. This is a very important topic for database specialists and application developers but most database product manuals and books cover indexing very briefly -- perhaps because index design issues are not product specific. Unlike table design, index design can be relatively easily improved while the application is already in production.
