Indexing for Physical Join Operators

Deepthi Goguri continues a series on physical join operators:

In the Part1 of decoding the physical join operators, we learned about the different types of physical operators: Nested loops, Merge joins and Hash joins. We have seen when they are useful and how to take advantage of each for the performance of our queries. We have also seen when they are useful and when they needs to be avoided.

In this part, we will know more about these operators and how the indexes really help these operator to perform better so the queries can execute faster.

Read on to see how to define indexes for each of the three physical operators.
