Yes, Stefan, the problem I'd like to solve is data load performance
The data is moved to staging and ETL'ed into the reporting DB, so no probs
Mark, yes, the rec update/insert date is the current partition key. Yes,
I'd lose the archival partition exchange if we change to hash partitioning,
but the ongoing archival process in not as important as the daily data load
right now. The source data load SLA is in jeopardy. But, that is an
important discussion I'll have to have with our team.
Outside of the model, seems like there is no problems with using hash
partitioning on a column containing a hashed value?
Thank you very much for your insight and thoughts.

a) Good questions by Stephan, and knowing your requirement could help
fine tune the answer
b) The rec update date or the rec insert date is the current partition
key? If the former, that implies row movement enabled, and I can’t quite
figure out what the rolling age date is that allows you to know rows can
get shoved into history. If the latter, that is sweet, because archiving
can be done via partition exchange. You would lose that with hash

What's the problem you're trying to solve by changing the partitioning
method? Improve data load performance? Improve query performance of
reports, etc ?

Got a VLDB. Various tables are updated/inserted daily from various data
sources. The table from one source has roughly 8 billion records. The table
is currently range/interval partitioned on the rec update date/timestamp.
However, the PK and column used for the incoming data source upsert is a
hash key that's about 30 chars long and made up of digits and alphas.
Have the thought of changing the partition to be a hash partition of the
PK column that contains a hash'ed value. Does anyone have any thoughts on
if that would make sense of if there are any pros or cons for hashing
partitioning a hash value?
Update. I found out that records older than x years are never updated, so
we've moved them to a history table. That took the rec count down from 8
billion to about 750 million. That has helped performance much, but still
wondering about hash partitioning the hash key...
Thanks for any thoughts...
