Assignment

Question No. 1

Consider the following table having the information of students of a university:

Student ID Student Name Campus ID Student Age Degree Program 1 Ali VLHR01 27 MS 2 Kamran VISB01 24 BS 3 Akmal VRWP01 24 BS 4 Ahmad VLHR01 26 MS 5 Rehan VISB01 23 BS 6 Rizwan VRWP01 29 MS 7 Umer VISB01 25 BS 8 Javed VLHR01 26 MS

You are required to completely de-normalize the above table using “horizontal splitting” on the basis of Degree Program.

Question No. 2
Consider the following normalized tables for a telecommunication company showing the daily call record details of customers:

Customer Info Customer_ID Customer Phone No. Balance 1 033XXXXX 300 2 033YYYYY 250 3 033ZZZZZZ 300 4 033AAAAA 1000 5 033BBBBB 80 6 033CCCCC 554

… …

Call record detail Call_ID Customer_ID Dialled Phone Number Duration Call Charges 1 1 032ABCVD 1 minute 2 RS 2 1 032ABCVG 2 minutes 4 RS 3 1 032ABCVD 1 minute 2 RS 4 2 032ANNNN 3 minutes 6 RS 5 2 032AMMM 4 minutes 8 RS 6 3 033RRRRR 1 minute 2 RS

… … … … …

Due to certain performance factors company wants to de-normalize the tables using pre-joining technique.

Table Information is given below:

• Assume 1:4 record count ratio between customer Info (master) and Call record detail (detail).
• Assume 15 million customers.
• Assume 10 byte Customer_ID.
• Assume 50 byte header for customer Info (master) and 80 byte header for Call record detail (detail) tables.
You are required to perform the following tasks:

• Calculate the Total space in GBs used with normalization.
• Calculate the Total space in GBs used after de-normalization.
