Partitioning a table in Source [message #326085] Tue, 10 June 2008 02:43 Go to next message

We have an Oracle ERP as the source of our Datawarehouse. The tables are growing fast and we query the tables based on UPDATE_DATE -- which takes forever. If we make these tables as range-partitioned on UPDATE_DATE, is that wise?? The problem is that this column gets updated in the source (application) very often and I think partition keys should not be updated.

Please help Smile

probably not a good idea if you need to update that column

Updating partition means moving the row from one partition to another one which is expensive: one delete + one insert in addition to your update + a more complex operation than usual on each index involving the partition column.
