Why Won’t Oracle Use My Index – 12c Attribute Clustering
Sometimes a poor clustering factor is the cause when Oracle Database cost based optimizer does not choose to use an index. Oracle 12c (126.96.36.199 EE) offers a new feature that can really help – “Atrribute Clustering”. This is implemented with a new keyword on CREATE TABLE – “CLUSTERING BY LINEAR ORDER”.
In this Free Tutorial from SkillBuilders and Oracle Certified Master DBA John Watson, you’ll get a brief refresher on clustering factor and a demonstration of CREATE TABLE – “CLUSTERING BY LINEAR ORDER” – so the CBO will use your index!
This free Oracle 12c training is segmented into several separate lessons:
