Abstract

See full text

In various embodiments, a method, apparatus, and article of manufacture collect statistics in a database management system. A workload comprising a plurality of database queries is received. Query statistics for the database queries are identified. The query statistics for the database queries are consolidated to provide consolidated statistics. One or more statistics collection requests are generated based on the consolidated statistics.
