Query Execution Plan

Metadata: DBMS maintains statistics about each relation, attribute and index.

Plan generation:

- Generate many alternative plans
- We saw many for selections, joins

- Estimate cost for each and choose best
Plans examined:

Selection (exact match): Linear, binary, PI, SI

Range: PI, SI

Joins: NLJ, BNLJ, INLJ, SMJ, HJ

Depends upon a cost model

For any query, must know

its estimated cardinality

its estimated cost (in # of I/Os)

E.g.: A = K (R )

cardinality SC(A, R)

cost: depends on the plan, attribute:

Linear Scan bR /2 bR

Binary Searchlog2(bR) log2(bR)+sc(A, R)/fR -1

PI ScanHTi +1 HTi +sc(A, R) / fR

How do we predict the cost of a plan?

Ans: Cost model

- For each plan operator and each algorithm we have a cost formula
- Inputs to formulas depend on relations, attributes
- Database maintains statistics about relations for this (Metadata)

- Given a relation r, DBMS likely maintains the following metadata:
- Size (# of tuples) nr
- Size (# of blocks) br
- Block size (#tuples) fr
(typicallybr =nr / fr )

- Tuple size (in bytes) sr
- Attribute Variance (for each attribute r, # of different values) V(att, r)
- Selection Cardinality (for each attribute in r, expected size of a selection: att = K (r ) ) SC(att, r)

Assume join: R S

- If R, S have no common attributes: nr*ns
- If R,S have attribute A in common:
(take min)

- If R, S have attribute A in common and:
- A is a candidate key for R: ≤ ns
- A is candidate key in R and candidate key in S : ≤ min(nr, ns)
- A is a key for R, foreign key for S: = ns

- Size and plans for join operation
- Running example: depositor customer
Metadata:

ncustomer = 10,000 ndepositor = 5000

fcustomer = 25 fdepositor = 50

bcustomer= 400 bdepositor= 100

V(cname, depositor) = 2500 (each customer has on average 2 accts)

cname in depositor is foreign key

depositor(cname, acct_no)

customer(cname, cstreet, ccity)

Cost:

- Worst case estimate: br bs + br block accesses.
- Improvements to nested loop and block nested loop algorithms for a buffer with M blocks:
- In block nested-loop, use M — 2 disk blocks as blocking unit for outer relations, where M = memory size in blocks; use remaining two blocks to buffer inner relation and output
- Cost = br / (M-2) bs + br

- If equi-join attribute forms a key on inner relation, stop inner loop on first match
- Scan inner loop forward and backward alternately, to make use of the blocks remaining in buffer (with LRU replacement)

- In block nested-loop, use M — 2 disk blocks as blocking unit for outer relations, where M = memory size in blocks; use remaining two blocks to buffer inner relation and output

Algorithm 3: Indexed Nested Loop Join

(fill w/

blocks of

S or index blocks)

For each tuple ti of R

if ti.A = K (A is the attribute R,S have in common)

then use the index to compute att = K (S )

Demands: index on A for S

Indexed Nested Loop Join

- For each tuple tRin the outer relation R, use the index to look up tuples in S that satisfy the join condition with tuple tR.
- Worst case: buffer has space for only one page of R, and, for each tuple in R, we perform an index lookup on s.
- Cost of the join: br + nr c
- Where c is the cost of traversing the index and fetching all matching s tuples for one tuple from r
- c can be estimated as cost of a single selection on s using the join condition.

- If indices are available on join attributes of both R and S,use the relation with fewer tuples as the outer relation.

Query: depositor customer

(cname, acct_no) (cname, ccity, cstreet)

Metadata:

customer: ncustomer = 10,000

fcustomer = 25 bcustomer = 400

depositor: ndepositor = 5000

fdepositor = 50 bdepositor = 100

V (cname, depositor) = 2500

i a primary index on cname (dense) for customer (fi = 20)

Minimal buffer

Alternative 1: Block Nested Loop

1a: customer = OUTER relation

depositor = INNER relation

cost: bcustomer + bdepositor * bcustomer = 400 +(400 *100) = 40,400

1b: customer = INNER relation

depositor = OUTER relation

cost: bdepositor + bdepositor * bcustomer = 100 +(400 *100) = 40,100

Alternative 2: Indexed Nested Loop

We have index on cname for customer. Depositor is the outer relation

Cost:

bdepositor + ndepositor * c = 100 +(5000 *c ) , c is the cost of evaluating a selection cname=K using index.

What is c? Primary index on cname, cname a key for customer

c = HTi +1

What is HTi ?

cname a key for customer. V(cname, customer) = 10,000

fi = 20, i is dense

LBi = 10,000/20 = 500

HTi ~ logfi(LBi) + 1 = log20 500 + 1 = 4

Cost of index nested loop is:

= 100 + (5000 * (4+1)) = 25,100 BA (cheaper than NLJ)

Compare:

(1, 2) advance pR

(2, 2) match, advance pS add to result

(2, 2) match, advance pS add to result

(2, 3) advance pR

(3, 3) match, advance pS add to result

(3, 5) advance pR

(4, 5) read next block of R

GIVEN R, S both sorted on A

- Initialization
- Reserve blocks of R, S into buffer reserving one block for result
- Pr= 1, Ps =1

- Join (assuming no duplicate values on A in R)
WHILE !EOF( R) && !EOF(S) DO

if BR[Pr].A == BS[Ps].A then

output to result; Ps++

else if BR[Pr].A < BS[Ps].A then

Pr++

else (same for Ps)

if Pr or Ps point past end of block,

read next block and set Pr(Ps) to 1

- Each block needs to be read only once (assuming all tuples for any given value of the join attributes fit in memory)
- Thus number of block accesses for merge-join is bR + bS
- But....
What if one/both of R,S not sorted on A?

Ans: May be worth sorting first and then perform merge join (Sort-Merge Join)

Cost: bR + bS + sortR + sortS

Not the same as internal sorting

Internal sorting:

minimize CPU (count comparisons)

best: quicksort, mergesort, ....

External sorting:

minimize disk accesses (what we ‘re sorting doesn’t fit in memory!)

best: external merge sort

WHEN used?

1) SORT-MERGE join

2) ORDER BY queries

3) SELECT DISTINCT (duplicate elimination)

Algorithm

Let M = size of buffer (in blocks)

1. Sort runs of size M blocks each (except for last) and store. Use internal sort on each run.

2. Merge M-1 runs at a time into 1 and store. Merge for all runs.

3. if step 2 results in more than 1 run, goto step 2.

Run

Output

Run 1

Run 2

........

Run 3

Cost: 2 bR * (logM-1(bR / M) + 1)

Intuition:

Step 1: create runs

every block read and written once

cost 2 bR I/Os

Step 2: Merge

every merge iteration requires reading and writing entire file (2 bR I/Os)

Total:

logM-1(bR / M)

----------------------------

Query: depositor customer

Merge-sort Join

Sorting depositor:

bdepositor = 100

Sort depositor = 2 * 100 * (log2(100 / 3) + 1)

= 1400

Similarly, for customer we get 7200 I/Os.

Total: 100 + 400 + 1400 + 7200 = 9100 I/O’s!

Still beats BNLJ (40K), INLJ (25K)

Why not use SMJ always?

Ans: 1) Sometimes inner relation can fit in memory

2) Sometimes index is small

3) SMJ only work for natural joins, “equijoins”

- hybrid merge-join: If one relation is sorted, and the other has a secondary B+-tree index on the join attribute
- Merge the sorted relation with the leaf entries of the B+-tree .
- Sort the result on the addresses of the unsorted relation’s tuples
- Scan the unsorted relation in physical address order and merge with previous result, to replace addresses by the actual tuples
- Sequential scan more efficient than random lookup
