Subj:   Re: Product and Merge Joins
 
From:   Andy Blevins

Product joins are not always bad, but should be looked at carefully when they use large tables. The size of the spool file for a product join is the product of each row in table A times each row in table B. So a 10 million row table times a 100 million row table is a big spool file. A merge join merges the results file which is usually, but not always faster.
