I’m writing this series because as interesting as single operators can be, you rarely run into interesting query plans that are a single operator. I don’t know exactly how many posts this will end up being. I have a list of about 15 things that I’d like to write about.
Anyway, I’d been thinking about something like this for a while, because being able to understand which part of a query generates which part of a query plan can help you focus in on what you need to work on. It’s also helpful to understand how different aspects of your database design and written queries might manifest in query plans.
You know, for performance.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. This post will be remarkably empty on first read, but will populate over time.
Thanks for reading!
