Subject Re: any explanation of pointbase performance in results posted in DERBY-465? Do they automatically create indexes?
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2005 21:54:34 GMT
Pointbase keeps track of the execution plan information for a query
into 2 tables named PLAN_QUERIES and PLAN_TABLE (private to the
current user) - it would be interesting to see what plan has been
chosen for the concerned queries...

The PLAN_TABLE table will indicate if an index has been used for a
particular query ID...

You could also issue:

SET PLANONLY ON | OFF (to generate execution plan only)

SET SHOWPLAN ON | OFF (to display the plan)

For such a simple query, creating an index dynamically could be a real
hit depending on the number of rows, etc...never heard of it,
especially as this is not a range query....
