      • With hashing – for columns that have more than 65536 unique values.
      • No hashing.
    • A value for max resource granularity (which indicates the maximum percentage of the system’s resources a query can use), if applicable.
  8. On the Histogram Tuning screen, set the histogram tuning factor. The size of the histogram is established by multiplying the number of steps with the value for histogram tuning factor.

  10. On the Step Number screen, indicate whether to set the number of histogram steps, and how many.
  11. On the Consumers screen, set the number of consumer processes to be used in parallel processing. The controls are enabled if the value for max parallel degree is 3 or greater.
