Optimizer should account for bufferpool hit-ratio when estimated page access time.(RIMS)

In PMR 00962,7TD,000, Goldman Sachs had a scenario where optimizer was choosing a more expensive HSJN over a less expensive NLJN. Shu Lin summaries the problem well: 'In terms of CPU cost and number of IOs, we correctly estimate that NLJN is bette...

Oracle-style isolation level 3 (multi-version read consistency) locking.(RIMS)

A description of Oracle's 'multi-version read consistency' can be found here: http://www.ss64.com/orasyntax/10locking.html. Even DB2's most liberal CS isolation is more strict then this. [update 04-27-2009]: Support for isolation level 3 queries t...

LOCK ESCALATION: Ability to specify table-level lock-escalation criteria.(RIMS)

Customer wants more granularity on lock-escalation semantics. currently, lock escalation occurs either when an application hit's the MAXLOCKS constraint, or when the database LOCKLIST becomes full. Since lock-escalation is more detrimental on tabl...
