Subject Re: Low latency data access Vs High throughput of data
Date Tue, 21 May 2013 18:51:20 GMT
Hi Chris, hi Raj,

in relational databases there are different targets for the optimizer:
Return the first record as fast as possible, even if reading through the
whole dataset takes longer (low latency)
Return all rows as fast as possible, even if reading the first record may
take a longer time (highest throughput)

Best regards,
