What is the default join strategy in Teradata???
The Teradata Cost based optimizer will decide the join strategy based on the optimum path. The common strategies followed are from Merge, Hash & Nested Join
Three strategies followed by optimizer are:
1. Duplication of rows of one table to every amp
--> This one is opted by optimizer when the non-PI column is on a small table.
2. Redistribution of the non PI rows of the table to the amp containing the matching PI row amp.
--> This one is opted when the tables are large. The non PI column is in one table is redistributed to the amp containing the matching PI.
3. Redistribute both the rows of the table by hash values.
--> This is chosen when the join is on a column that is not the PI in either table. This will require the most spool space.
