Do I need to create indexes on foreign keys?
I have a table A and a table B. A has a foreign key to B on B's primary key, B_ID.
For some reason (I know there are legitimate reasons) it is not using an index when I join these two tables on the key.
Do I need to separately create an index on A.B_ID or should the existence of a foreign key provide that?
The foreign key constraint alone does not provide the index - one must (and should) be created.
