Query optimization

Review INSERT design doc for use cases and add optimization hints to Performance and Tuning section.

When you submit a query to Vertica for processing, the Vertica query optimizer automatically chooses a set of operations to compute the requested result. These operations together are called a query plan. The choice of operations can significantly affect how many resources are needed to compute query results, and overall run-time performance. Optimal performance depends in great part on the projections that are available for a given query.

This section describes the different operations that the optimizer uses and how you can facilitate optimizer performance.
