136 Chapter 14 would allow an index-only scan, and would thus be just as economical as the clustered index. This method (both by clustered and unclustered ) would cost around 5000 I/O’s. 4. Knowing that duplicate elimination is not required, we can simply scan the relation and discard unwanted fields for each tuple. This is the best strategy except in the case that an index (clustered or unclustered) on < ename, title > is available; in this case, we can do an index-only scan. (Note that even with DISTINCT specified, no duplicates are actually present int he answer because ename is a candidate key. However, a typical optimizer is not likely to recognize this and omit the duplicate elimination step.) Exercise 14.4 Consider the join R R.a = S.b S , given the following information about the relations to be joined. The cost metric is the number of page I/Os unless otherwise noted, and the cost of writing out the result should be uniformly ignored. Relation R contains 10,000 tuples and has 10 tuples per page. Relation S contains 2000 tuples and also has 10 tuples per page. Attribute b of relation S is the primary key for S. Both relations are stored as simple heap files. Neither relation has any indexes built on it. 52 buffer pages are available. 1. What is the cost of joining R and S using a page-oriented simple nested loops join? What is the minimum number of buffer pages required for this cost to remain unchanged?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
