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 ( 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!
