# Module 8: Primary Index Mechanics

## After completing this module, you will be able to:

Explain the role of the hashing algorithm and the hash map in
locating a row.
Explain the makeup of the Row ID and its role in row storage.
Describe the sequence of events for locating a row given its PI
value.

Summary
The MPL uses the DSW of
1177 and uses this value to
locate bucket #1177 in the
Hash Map.
Bucket# 1177 contains the
AMP number that has this
hash value effectively the
AMP with this row.

## The hashing algorithm is designed to insure even distribution of

unique values across all AMPs.
Different hashing algorithms are used for different international
character sets.

## A Row Hash is the 32-bit result of applying a hashing algorithm to

an index value.
The DSW or Hash Bucket is represented by the high order 16 bits
of the Row Hash.

## A Hash Map is uniquely configured for each system.

It is a array of 65,536 entries (buckets) which associates bucket
numbers with specific AMPs.

Two systems with the same number of AMPs will have the same
Hash Map.
Changing the number of AMPs in a system requires a change to
the Hash Map.

Identifying Rows
A row hash is not adequate to uniquely identify a row.
Consideration #1
A Row Hash = 32 bits = 4.2 billion possible
values
Because there is an infinite number of
possible data values, some data values will
have to share the same row hash.

Consideration #2
A Primary Index may be non-unique (NUPI).
Different rows will have the same PI value
and thus the same row hash.

Conclusion
A row hash is not adequate to uniquely identify a row.

Rows have
same hash

The Row ID
To uniquely identify a row, we add a 32-bit uniqueness value.
The combined row hash and uniqueness value is called a Row ID.
Row ID
Each stored row
has a Row ID as a
prefix.

## Rows are logically

maintained in Row
