Subj:   Re: Workaround to avoid product join

  I am not sure if I can avoid joining the reference table only by extending the CASE though. I need the data to be grouped by every minute- slice, while the main table stores just the ID of a starting and an ending minute. Maybe I miss something here, but I don't think it will be so easy.  

  So OLAP joins the game probably, which I really wanted to avoid. Besides, am not sure if I can use OLAP to get what I want - I'm afraid I will have to rack my brain a bit more.  

Why do you want to avoid OLAP?

Of course you should try to avoid it on a 150 mio row table :-) Just aggregate before you cross join.

Following query should work, you just need a small cross join (to a products table) to create all possible product/minute combinations:

        ,(-- all sessions started < this minute
          -- minus all sessions ended <= this minute
          -- = active sessions throughout this minute (full 60 seconds)
          OVER (PARTITION BY id_prod
                ORDER BY id_minute
          - SUM(CASE WHEN cnt > 0 THEN cnt ELSE 0 END)
         ) * 60
         -- seconds from sessions started/ended within this minute
          + SUM(secs)
          ,minute_starting AS id_minute

          -- how many sessions started within that minute
          -- only count if it's not already ending within that minute
          ,COUNT(CASE WHEN minute_starting <> minute_ending THEN 1 END) AS cnt
          ,SUM(SEC_FIRST_MIN) AS secs
        FROM a
        GROUP BY 1,2

        UNION ALL


          -- how many sessions ended within that minute
        FROM a
          -- only sessions which don't end within the same minute
          -- (already aggregated in first select)
          minute_starting <> minute_ending
        GROUP BY 1,2

        UNION ALL

        -- all possible minutes per id_prod
        -- # of products * 1440
        SELECT id_prod, id_minute, 0, 0
        FROM ref_table CROSS JOIN products
       ) dt
     GROUP BY 1,2
     ORDER BY 1,2
