When you create the master index database, you need to consider several factors, such as sizing, distribution, indexes, and extents. By default, all of the master index database tables for an Oracle database are installed in the system tablespace. You should install the master index tables in different tablespaces, depending on the original size and expected volume of the database. For SQL Server, the master index tables belong to “dbo” by default.
To begin the database installation, you first create an Oracle or SQL Server database instance using the provided configuration tools. Use the tools provided by Oracle or Microsoft to define the tablespace and extent sizing for the database.
When you create the database instance, you can define the distribution of your system tables, data tables, rollback logs, dump files, control files, and so on. Use internal policies regarding relational database distribution to determine how to best distribute your master index database.
By default, indexes are defined for the following tables: sbyn_appl, sbyn_common_header, sbyn_common_detail, sbyn_enterprise, sbyn_transaction, sbyn_assumedmatch, sbyn_potentialduplicates, sbyn_audit, and sbyn_merge. You can create additional indexes against the database to optimize the searching and matching processes. At a minimum, it is recommended that all combinations of fields used for blocking or matching be indexed. For each query block defined in the blocking query, create an index containing the fields in that block.
The following indexes are automatically created to improve performance when running large reports from the command line or EDM.
CREATE INDEX SBYN_POTENTIALDUPLICATES3 ON SBYN_POTENTIALDUPLICATES (TRANSACTIONNUMBER ASC);
CREATE INDEX SBYN_ASSUMEDMATCH2 ON SBYN_ASSUMEDMATCH (TRANSACTIONNUMBER ASC);
CREATE INDEX SBYN_TRANSACTION4 on SBYN_TRANSACTION (EUID2 ASC, TIMESTAMP ASC);
CREATE INDEX SBYN_TRANSACTION3 on SBYN_TRANSACTION (TIMESTAMP ASC, TRANSACTIONNUMBER ASC);
To improve performance, these four indexes should be dropped prior to performing an initial load or batch load of data. They can be recreated once the load is complete if you are running the provided reports.
