Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6942) Utilise additional statistics for selectivity estimates.
Date Sat, 01 Jul 2017 21:27:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6942?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16071408#comment-16071408

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-6942:

Let me see if I get that, too: the cost of the table scan is the same in either case, because
we have to read every page of the table and evaluate the predicate against each row.

However, the number of rows in the result depends very heavily on the accuracy of the selectivity
estimate. So if the results of the table scan go on to be used in a join with some other table,
then the cost of the join will depend on the number of rows we read from the base table, and
we can now have a more accurate estimate of that.
