...That is the question.
Ok, so I am forgetting my Teradata 101...I would like to ask the group if there are any drawbacks to creating an index to cover a set query.
My example: I have a couple of tables which are both created with a column (ID) as the primary index...and this is the same column where my joins occur.
If I run my query against these two tables 2.6Mil x 78000 rows, it takes around 31 minutes to complete.
If I run create index (ID) order by Hash (ID) on <
As you can see, the savings is substantial, but the question is...at what cost. Would a query not using the (ID) column suffer? Or is the cost merely storage and maintenace of stats on the new index?
Thank you for the Teradata 101 refresher.
