When Jonathan Lewis decided it was time to post a list of the Partition Stats posts on his blog and Noons suggested I made them easier to track down, I listened. So this post will link to the others and, at least in the short term, I've also included links in the side-bar on the right over there.
1 - Default options - GLOBAL AND PARTITION
2 - Estimated Global Stats
3 - Stats Aggregation Problems I
4 - Stats Aggregation Problems II
5 - Minimal Stats Aggregation
Part 6a - COPY_TABLE_STATS
To be continued ....
P.S. It was a lot easier doing this than actually finishing off Part 6 and I'm insanely busy at the moment.
P.P.S. My ultimate intention is to re-write the blog posts as a more considered, easier-to-read article but who knows when that might happen?
