> DERBY-269 provided a manual way to update the statisitcs. There was some discussion in
that jira entry for possibly optimizing the cases where there is no need to update the statistics.
I will enter the related comments from that jira entry here for reference.

> If I have understood correctly, unique indexes always have up to date cardinality statistics
because cardinality == row count. If that's the case, one possible optimization is to skip
the unique indexes when SYSCS_UPDATE_STATISTICS is called.

> is the cardinality of a unique index 1 or is it row count? 
> It is also more complicated than just skipping unique indexes, it depends on the number
of columns in the index because 
> in a multi-column index, multiple cardinalities are calculated. So for instance on an
index on columns A,B,C there are 
> actually 3 cardinalities calculated: 
> A 
> A,B 
> A,B,C 
> I agree that the calculation of cardinality of A,B,C could/should be short circuited
for a unique index.

> Mike, 
> It looks to me as if the cardinality is the number of unique values, so I think the cardinality
of a unique index is equal to its row count (for the full key, that is). You're right that
we can't short circuit it if we have a multi-column index. I don't know if it's worth the
extra complexity to short circuit the A,B,C case, since we'd have to scan the entire index
anyway. For a single-column unique index it sounds like a good idea, though.
