Subj:   Re: Information on COVER INDEX and query optimization...
 
From:   Ramakrishna_Vedantam

Just check the Teradata design manual to understand covering. To quote the manual 'The Optimizer aggressively pursues NUSIs when they cover a query. The expression "covering" means that all of the columns requested in a query are also available from an existing index subtable, making it unnecessary to access the base table rows to complete the query.' There are some simple examples too.
