Subj:   Re: Surrogate keys
From:   Bethany Withers

Our mature (aka old) applications all use intelligent keys, for example store, item. We have a new application in very early design phases that will be using surrogate keys. It deploys early 2001, so we will have some experiences to share in 8-9 months. We have had huge success by using multi-set tables for our large historical tables. By dropping date out of the key our I/O dropped dramatically and our online queries run significantly faster. Batch load time increased slightly. You may want to test multi-set with 64K block size (available in V2R3) for your table where policy is not unique enough.
