ClickHouse is famous for speed. That said, you can almost always make it faster! This webinar uses examples to teach you how to deduce what queries are actually doing by reading the system log and system tables. We’ll then explore standard ways to increase query speed: data types and encodings, filtering, join reordering, skip indexes, materialized views, session parameters, to name just a few. In each case we’ll circle back to query plans and system metrics to demonstrate changes in ClickHouse behavior that explain the boost in performance. We hope you’ll enjoy the first step to becoming a ClickHouse performance guru!
