2041052 - How can a table with existing data and no clustered index be round-robin partitioned with evenly distributed data? - SAP ASE


  • A table with existing data, but with no clustered index, may benefit from data partitioning. 
  • However, use of documented syntax for table partitioning does not evenly distribute data across partitions in every instance -- without a clustered index, partition creation on a table with existing data places all the data in the first partition. 
  • How can one ensure even data distribution when introducing round-robin partitioning on a table with existing data and no clustered index?
