Abstract

An index is an optionally created database object used primarily to increase query performance. The purpose of a database index is similar to that of an index in the back of a book. A book index associates a topic with a page number. When you’re locating information in a book, it’s usually much faster to examine the index first, find the topic of interest, and identify associated page numbers. With this information, you can navigate directly to specific page numbers in the book.
