I was trying to partition my tables , and also read about Collocation.

q1) I would like to know whether i will get benefit of Collocation in following situation or not.

q2) Should i make clusterd index on partition key Pid

q3) will it get benefit from partitioning.

I have a table "A" and "B" with many columns and it has one Partition key Pid with is not unique.
with in a table Pid repeates 3 or 4 times.

Both are partitioned, since the partition key is not unique.
so at many places i have to use following query.

1) Select * from A
join (select Distinct pid , tname from B) B1
on =
where ......

2) Select * from A
where exist (select pid , tname from B
on =

yours sincerly
