  • D. fast recovery of a down node


Answer : D

Which statements are true about a prejoin projection? (Select three.)

  • A. A prejoin projection enforces primary and foreign key constraints.
  • B. A prejoin projection does not increase the storage footprint.
  • C. A prejoin projection slows down data loading.
  • D. A prejoin projection can process any type of join.
  • E. A prejoin projection adds no limitations to the tables in the join.
  • F. A prejoin projection improves query run time performance.


Answer : A,B,E

What is a difference between maxconcurrency and plannedconcurrency?

  • A. Maxconcurrency is a hard limit to the number of queries running within a pool; plannedconcurrency is used to create a query budget.
  • B. Maxconcurrency is used to create a query budget; plannedconcurrency is a hard limit to the number of queries running within a pool.
  • C. Maxconcurrency is a hard limit to the number of queries running within a pool; plannedconcurrency limits the number of queries running on the cluster.
  • D. Maxconcurrency limits the number of queries running on the cluster; plannedconcurrency is a hard limit to the number of queries running within a pool.


Answer : C

What are the advantages of a group by pipe versus a group by hash? (Select two.)

  • A. A group by pipe uses memory more efficiently.

Answer : A,E

What is local segmentation capability in Vertica?

  • A. Vertica automatically splits current segments in half to redistribute them to new nodes.
  • B. Vertica automatically partitions the data, allowing partitions to be dropped and recreated on new nodes.
  • C. Vertica automatically creates more segments than are currently needed, allowing some segments to be moved to new nodes as needed.
  • D. Vertica automatically partitions the segmented data, allowing some partitions to be moved to new nodes as needed.

  • C. The recovered node uses spread to speed up the recovery process.
  • D. The recovered node restores all files from the last backup.
  • E. The recovered node must be rebuilt from epoch 0.
