Thread: range vs local partitions

    range vs local partitions

    All else being equal, is local partitioning any better than range partitioning? I've got an set of PK indexes that are all range-partitioned on the same boundaries as the underlying table. Is it worth the (nontrivial) time to convert them?

    What do you mean exactly by: LOCAL PARTITIONING?

    range-partitioning is good for historical or old data.
    You dont want your OLTP system increases time response
    because there are old data along new data in the index.
    Just an hipotetical example.

    It sounds as though your Tables are Paritioned by RANGE and your Indexes are Locally Paritioned.

    I think you may have your terminology mixed.

    In < 9i the partition Types available are RANGE and HASH

    9i introduced a new type called LIST partitioning.

    Indexes on the partitioned table, can be LOCALLY of GLOBALLY partitioned, (prefixed or non-prefixed.)
