Hey guys, i really need some help here since i am a very new programmer, so i thank you in advance for your patience and advice. So, I have build a very large table; its nearly 4 billion record. however, I need to increase the performance. I would like to index it properly but am not sure how to go about doing this. there is a primary key on the table, and i would like to index it by time but let me know what y'all think.

Thanks so much!

CJ
