Designing and Tuning the Indexes
It is impossible to define an indexing strategy that will work everywhere. Every system is unique and requires its own indexing approach. However, there are several design considerations and guidelines that can be applied in every system.
The same is true when we are optimizing existing systems. While optimization is an iterative process, which is unique in every case, there is the set of techniques that can be used to detect inefficiencies in every database system.
In this chapter, we will cover a few important factors that you will need to keep in mind when designing new indexes and optimizing existing ...
