- The last step in the histogram's Step Weight Value represents 64% of the data
- Statistics from huge tables shows a large skew for the last histogram step, even after executing 'update statistics'
- This is an example of the last 3 steps for a table that has more than 2.1 billion (2^31) rows using 1000 steps
998 0.00000000 < "Feb 13 2009 12:00:00:000AM"
999 0.00045268 = "Feb 13 2009 12:00:00:000AM"
1000 0.64416260 < = "Jan 1 2099 12:00:00:000AM"
- When statistics are skewed like this the optimizer may not have the best query plan and table scans might be used
