3.2 - MERGE, UPDATE, DELETE

The amount of redo generated by the statements :

  • MERGE
  • UPDATE
  • DELETE

If you perform these operations with as few index enabled as possible, you can reduce the amount of redo generated, but you will have to rebuild those disabled indexes. This is generally practical only in datawarehouse when you are performing large data loads.
