Understanding existing databases at the logical level: the DBA companion project

Abstract : Whereas physical database tuning has received a lot of attention over the last decade, logi- cal database tuning seems to be under-studied. We have developed a project called DBA Companion devoted to the understanding of logical database constraints from which logical database tuning can be achieved. In this setting, two main data mining issues need to be addressed: the first one is the design of efficient algorithms for functional dependencies and inclusion dependencies inference and the second one is about the interestingness of the discovered knowledge. In this paper, we point out some relationships between database analysis and data mining. In this setting, we sketch the underlying themes of our approach. Some database applications that could benefit from our project are also described, including logical database tuning.
