  • A database indexing is the core of applications ad tabase level

    by Shamal Jayakody /

    It is important to understand a pragmatic approach as outlined in this presentation. A database index is a data structure that improves the speed of data acquiring operations on a database table at the expense of slower writes and augmented storage space. Indices can be created using one or more columns of a database table, providing the basis for both rapid random lookups and efficient access of ordered records.
