In fields ranging from arbitrage to sensor processing, speed of access to data can determine success or failure. Database tuning is the activity of making a database system run faster. Like optimization activities in other areas of computer science and engineering, database tuning must work within certain constraints. Just as compiler optimizers, for example, cannot directly change the underlying hardware but can change register allocations, database tuners cannot change the underlying database management system software, but can make use of the options it offers.
