Autonomous Index Optimization in XML Databases
Abstract— Defining suitable indexes is a major task when optimizing a database. Usually, a human database administrator defines a set of indexes in the design phase of the database. This can be done manually or with the help of so called index wizard tools analyzing predefined database operations. Even having an optimal initial set of indexes when setting up a database, there is no guarantee that these indexes will suit future demands. Rather, it is realistic that the typical usage of the database will change after a while because new queries appear, for instance. In consequence, the existing indexes are suboptimal. The typical way to handle this problem is that a database administrator maintains the database permanently. In XML database management systems (XDBMS) this problem becomes even worse: Because XML queries cover both content and structure the number of possible queries and indexes is significantly higher. Additionally, for XML data without schema information, queries an...
