If you are a Developer and/or a DBA, you must have come across this question: "why isn’t my query using an index?" This session explores the factors that influence the Postgres optimizer’s approach to this question. Learn about the concepts of cardinality and histograms and hear how these affect the optimizer's calculations. See a demonstration of how these concepts work in practice using real SQL queries. This session is intended for Developers and DBAs who want to learn the basics of how the optimizer chooses between an index range or full table scan and how to speed up SQL.
