Batched I/O

Logical I/O Evolution - Part 3: 11g

Preface (with apologies to Kevin Closson)

This blog post is too long


In the previous part of this series I've already demonstrated that the logical I/O optimization of the Table Prefetching feature depends on the order of the row sources - and 11g takes this approach a big step further.

It is very interesting that 11g does not require any particular feature like Table Prefetching or Nested Loop Join Batching (another new feature introduced in 11g) to take advantage of the Logical I/O optimization - it seems to be available even with the most basic form of a Nested Loop join.
