## SQLite Expert Extension

This folder contains code for a simple system to propose useful indexes
given a database and a set of SQL queries. It works as follows:

  1. The user database schema is copied to a temporary database.

  1. All SQL queries are prepared against the temporary database. I
     Information regarding the WHERE and ORDER BY clauses, and other query
     features that affect index selection, are recorded.

  1. The information gathered in step 2 is used to create (possibly a large
     number of) candidate indexes.


  1. A subset of the data in the user database is used to generate statistics
     for all existing indexes and the candidate indexes generated in step 3
     above.

  1. The SQL queries are prepared a second time. If the planner uses any
     of the indexes created in step 3, they are recommended to the user.
................................................................................

Or an entire text file worth of queries with:

<pre>
  ./sqlite3_expert -file &lt;text-file&gt; test.db
</pre>

By default, sqlite3_expert generates index statistics using all the data in
the user database. For a large database, this may be prohibitively time
consuming. The "-sample" option may be used to configure sqlite3_expert to
generate statistics based on an integer percentage of the user database as
follows:

<pre>
  # Generate statistics based on 25% of the user database rows:
  ./sqlite3_expert -sample 25 -sql &lt;sql-query&gt; test.db

  # Do not generate any statistics at all:
  ./sqlite3_expert -sample 0 -sql &lt;sql-query&gt; test.db
</pre>

     had they been available.

     for all existing indexes and the candidate indexes generated in step 3
     above.
