Speeding up In-Memory Joins using Join Groups

What are Join Groups?

A new In-Memory feature called Join Groups was introduced with the Database In-Memory Option in Oracle Database 12.2.  Join Groups can be created to significantly speed up hash join performance in an In-Memory execution plan.  Creating a Join Group involves identifying up-front the set of join key columns (across any number of tables) likely to be joined with by subsequent queries.  For example, the following join group object connects EMP and DEPT tables with their respective deptno join key columns:

create inmemory join group JG (EMP(deptno), DEPT(deptno));

After the creation of the join group, populating the tables involved in the join group will result in a single domain dictionary built that join keys from the join columns specified in the Join Group are mapped to.  By pre-defining and storing a single map across…

The third meetup that I attended on my trip to Washington, D.C. was held on Wednesday 4 April at REI Systems, 45335 Vintage Park Plaza, Sterling, Virginia. The meetup was organized by Nova Data Science.

The location of the meetup was quite far from where my colleague Chris Cook and I were staying, so we had to journey out of Washington taking the Metro and then on-demand car transportation. Jokingly, Chris and I agreed that the journey felt rather like the movie "Planes, Trains and Automobiles."
