If you create indexes to speed up queries, this session will show how to improve your query performance even more.

It also explains what Jump Scan can and cannot do. Finally, through an example, it addresses a misconception about logical index I/Os introduced by Jump Scan’s index probes. This example illustrates that Jump Scan reduces both physical index I/Os and query execution time because local index I/Os’ code path is highly optimized for Jump Scan, and their performance impact is typically much smaller than physical index I/Os.
