How to choose a distributed execution plan in TiDB

| username: Fly-bird | Original post link

What exactly is the requirement?

| username: 大飞哥online | Original post link

You can’t choose, unless you have deployed the standalone version.
The selectable options are to use tikv or tiflash.

Isn’t there a section on optimizing indexes and execution plans in the course? It covers when to use what.

| username: xingzhenxiang | Original post link

Adjusting the SQL, the explain will show whether it uses TiKV or TiFlash.

You can hint to choose some execution plans, the data is distributed, and the query will definitely be distributed as well.
