Re: Bitmap index costing - how to influence

Thanks Randalf,

I can't modify the query, and I've set this globally for the database
already as a workarround.

However this affects costing calculations for b-tree indexes.

I am looking for something that affects only bitmaps, and ideally only
specific bitmap indexes.
