Join William Lyon for an in-depth discussion in this video Insights on search in Neo4j, part of Database Clinic: Neo4J.
- [Instructor] In this problem, we wrote a cypher query…to traverse the graph of population predictions…to produce a table that gave us population predictions…by county and gender for a specific year.…We saw how to inspect the query execution plan…to help us tune our cypher queries,…and we saw how to create an index to improve…the performance of our query.…An important takeaway here is how indexes are used in Neo4j.…Graph databases like Neo4j have a performance characteristic…called index-free adjacency, which means that our…traversals, following a relationship from one node…to another does not use an index, meaning that…the performance of that traversal is not dependent…on the overall size of the data.…
We still have a use for indexes in Neo4j,…but as a way to find the starting point for our traversals.…To speed up our query for this problem,…we created an index to quickly find the starting point…for our traversal, which, in this case, was all…population prediction nodes where the year property…was equal to 2014.…
