Summary Statistics

What are differences between summary statistics and satistics? When we should opt for summary statistics instead of statistics?

Thanks, Moutusi

Summary stats is quite fast and generate details like row count,block size..... I think it is collected automatically once you generate stats.
Normal stats takes more time.

It is suggested to do for both. Summary stats is getting details quickly like for row count....

The Summary statistics are collected automatically when statistics on any column of the table are collected.

You may refer the orange book "TD14.10 Statistics enhancement". It has very good information.

Hello Moutusi,
After Summary Stats has been collected for the 1st time, then collecting any column level statistics will refresh the Summary Stats implicitly. The vice versa isn't true meaning Refreshing Summary Stats doesn't refresh any Column Level Stats.
