Tuning database design for high performance

Dennis Shasha, Philippe Bonnet

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In fields ranging from arbitrage to tactical missile defense, speed of access to data can determine success or failure. Database tuning is the activity of making a database system run faster. Like optimization activities in other areas of computer science and engineering, database tuning must work within the constraints of its underlying technology. Just as compiler optimizers, for example, cannot directly change the underlying hardware, database tuners cannot change the underlying database management system.
