Cost-Based Query Optimizer

Write queries that produce the following index scans:

  • Sequential with a temporary table
  • Sequential scan with filter
  • Key-only index scan
  • Index Scan: lower and upper index filters
  • Dynamic Hash Join
  • Key-first index scans

Updating Statistics and Data Distributions
