Re: doubt about merge table (10000+) with same structure


You have a sharded table.  You could probably use shard-query.  If all tables are in same schema, you will need to create a new "fake" schema for each table:

Create schema s1;
Create view s1.the_table as select * from real_schema.table1;

Create schema s2;
Create view s2.the_table as select * from real_schema.table2;

Set up shard query with N shards, each pointing to on of the "fake" schema.

Select from the_table in Shard-Query to access all  the tables.   When you set up shard-query, use a fake shard-key so that all tables are always searched (they will be searched in parallel).


Use a stored procedure.   It can use dynamic SQL to search each table and return a result set from each, since SP can return more than one result set.   This is slower (no parallelism) but simpler.
