What is an index filter?

A filtered index is an optimized disk-based rowstore nonclustered index especially suited to cover queries that select from a well-defined subset of data. It uses a filter predicate to index a portion of rows in the table.

How do I restore Elasticsearch index?

As a workaround, you can first restore the index to another cluster running the latest version of Elasticsearch that’s compatible with both the index and your current cluster. You can then use reindex-from-remote to rebuild the index on your current cluster.

What is index life cycle management?

Index lifecycle management is a feature that helps automate the creation, management and deletion of an Elasticsearch index. Being able to automate the creation of a new index when the index reaches the optimum size of 50GB per shard is very useful.

When would you use a filtered index?

A filtered index is beneficial in the scenario if the number of rows covered by the filter criteria is small compared to the total number of rows. If the covered rows include all the rows of a table, then in that case its better to use a regular non-clustered index.

What is covering index in SQL Server?

An index that contains all required information to resolve the query is known as a “Covering Index” – it completely covers the query. Covering Index includes all the columns, the query refers to in the SELECT, JOIN, and WHERE clauses.

What is partial index in SQL Server?

In databases, a partial index, also known as filtered index is an index which has some condition applied to it so that it includes a subset of rows in the table. This allows the index to remain small, even though the table may be rather large, and have extreme selectivity.

What is filtered unique index in SQL Server?

What is SQL Server filtered index? A SQL Server filtered index is a non-clustered index that allows us to apply specific conditions to cover a subset of rows in the table. Such as, we have a material table and the web application only requests the active material data.

What are indexes in SQL Server?

An index contains keys built from one or more columns in the table or view. These keys are stored in a structure (B-tree) that enables SQL Server to find the row or rows associated with the key values quickly and efficiently. SQL Server documentation uses the term B-tree generally in reference to indexes.

What are different types of indexes in SQL Server?

There are various types of indexes in SQL server:

  • Clustered Index.
  • Non-Clustered Index.
  • Column Store Index.
  • Filtered Index.
  • Hash Index.
  • Unique Index.

How do I restore a single index in Elasticsearch snapshot?

To restore a specific feature state from the snapshot, specify the feature_name from the response in the restore snapshot API’s feature_states parameter. When you restore a feature state, Elasticsearch closes and overwrites the feature’s existing indices.

Can I rebuild filtered indexes?

You can rebuild filtered indexes while they are available for queries. Online index rebuilds are not supported for indexed views. For more information, see the REBUILD option for ALTER INDEX (Transact-SQL). Non-unique indexes. Filtered indexes can be non-unique, whereas indexed views must be unique.

Why can’t I create a filtered index on a table?
