Sample text

2, include composite primary keys. Composite primary keys get a little too precise and are more compatible with reporting efficiency and perhaps only a very few specific reports. 3 do not have composite primary keys. 3 would probably require composite alternate indexes, somewhat negating the usefulness of surrogate keys. Matching query filtering and sorting with existing keys: When existing composite primary keys do not cater to requirements then perhaps either further normalization or denormalization is a possibility.

Look for them! They are usually used to preserve disk space and provide integrity for potentially NULL values. They may be unnecessary if the required removal of NULL values causes costly joins. Disk space is cheap! 5. 5, the fully denormalized version is shown bottom-right, in the form of the customer table, containing both address and listing information. This is based on listing information potentially not being present, and address information potentially not being present. Splitting the customer table into customer, listed, and address tables is correct.

Additionally, materialized views usually allow automated changes to queries, as they are submitted to a database, effectively rewriting the query (query rewrite) during the optimization process. This can help to improve performance if a materialized view contains a summary (much fewer records) of data in underlying tables. Materialized views are mostly applicable in data warehouses but can be utilized in OLTP databases under certain circumstances. As with views, materialized views, and index views—these objects will not help performance if over-used or used to cater to overlaying a new table design on top of a poorly designed data model.
