INFORMIX problems

INFORMIX problems

INFORMIX problems

I have a huge Table (over 1.000.000 records) and when I make a SELECT, it's take too much time to make it and I don't know how to solve this problem. I created INDEXS but it doesn't work.

Can anyone help me?


RE: INFORMIX problems

Without the table structure nor the index you've created nor the select instruction it's hard to say anything ...

Hope This Helps, PH.

RE: INFORMIX problems

My Table has 15 columns and I can't modify its structure because the application is already done. I created simple Indexes and the result of the query has returned in 30 min. I think the Indexes are the problem but I do not have experience in working with Informix, can someone give me a tip about Index?


P.S I use Informix 9.4

RE: INFORMIX problems

Why not posting your table layout and the SQL code of your query ?
How do you expect someone may help you if you say nothing about what you have and what you want ?
