You can have a look at the documentation in SQL Request and Transaction Processing.

Good read:

Confidence Levels For Single Table Retrieval Operations, Confidence Levels For Join Operations.

From the doc

The system has neither Low nor High confidence in the cardinality and distinct value estimates for the relation.

The Optimizer pursues conservative strategies to optimize the relevant steps. Reason with example given from the doc: Any of the following situations exists:

• There are no statistics on the column or index sets

specified in the predicate.

• The predicate contains complex expressions for

which statistics cannot be collected.

For example, statistics cannot be collected for

either of the following two expressions:

• SUBSTR(col1,5,10)

• CASE

WHEN x=10 THEN x+10

ELSE x-10

• For an aggregate estimation, there are no statistics

on the grouping columns.
