NewsUsing bitmap indexes in databases Pin
Terrence Dorsey6-Mar-13 12:19
staffTerrence Dorsey6-Mar-13 12:19 
There are many different data structures used in databases to create indexes used to quickly evaluate queries. Each one has different strengths and weaknesses based on the tradeoffs they make on memory, cpu and storage (if persisted). One of these types of indexes is called a bitmap index. For the purpose of this post I’m going to be using relational database terminology but the same techniques can apply to different database types like column oriented databases or many others non-relational databases.
Kelly Sommers continues her deep dive into database internals.
