Optimization of queries improves performance of TD and helps the PE to generate the most efficient execution plan. To Optimize a query, choose the Primary Index to avoid skrew, Collect statistics on the joining columns, avoid using CAST, SUBSTR, CASE, POSITION, as these functions consumes a lot of resource. If two huge tables are joined almost regularly, create Joined Index.
