    • F.

      Select * (All columns)

    • G.

      Aggregation,

    • H.

      Insert and update

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Less distinct values
    B. Compression,
    D. Read optimized
    G. Aggregation,
    Explanation
    A column store table is used when there are less distinct values in a dataset. This is because columnar databases store data in a column-wise manner, which allows for better compression of data. By compressing the data, column store tables can reduce storage requirements and improve query performance. Additionally, column store tables are optimized for aggregation queries, where calculations are performed on a large set of data. On the other hand, when there are many distinct values or when the requirement is to select all columns, a row store table may be more suitable. Row store tables are better for insert and update operations, as they are optimized for write operations.

    • F.

      Less distinct values

    • G.

      Many distinct values

    • H.

      Aggregation

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Select * (All columns)
    D. Insert and update
    E. Write optimized
    G. Many distinct values
    Explanation
    A row store table is suitable when there are many distinct values, as it allows for efficient retrieval of specific rows based on their unique values. It is also advantageous when the query involves selecting all columns (select *), as it eliminates the need to access multiple columns from different storage locations. Additionally, row store tables are ideal for scenarios involving frequent insert and update operations, as they provide better performance for modifying individual rows. Lastly, row store tables are optimized for write operations, ensuring efficient data modification.

    What is delta merge + basic operating

    • A.

      Merge changed data from main memory to disk

    • B.

      Merge at the transaction level

    • C.

      Merge from delta to main memory only for column store tables

    • D.

      Merge at the statement level

    Correct Answer
    C. Merge from delta to main memory only for column store tables
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Merge from delta to main memory only for column store tables." Delta merge is a process in which the changed data from the delta storage is merged into the main memory of a database. This process is specifically applicable to column store tables, which store data in a column-wise format rather than a row-wise format. By merging the delta data into the main memory, the column store tables can be updated and optimized for query performance. This process does not involve merging data from main memory to disk or merging at the transaction or statement level.

  • 5. 

    What is savepoint + basic operating?

    • A.

      A save point is where changed data is pushed from delta memory to main memory for column store tables

    • B.

      A save point takes place at the statement level

    • C.

      A save point takes place at the transaction level

    • D.

      A save point is where changed data is pushed from memory to disk

    Correct Answer
    D. A save point is where changed data is pushed from memory to disk
    Explanation
    A save point is a point in a transaction where all the changes made to the data are permanently saved from memory to disk. This ensures that the data is not lost in case of any system failure or error. By saving the data to disk, it becomes persistent and can be retrieved even after a system restart. This is an important mechanism to maintain data integrity and consistency in a database system.
