ClosedView the Open Optimized SQL Details Window

The Open Optimized SQL Details window displays information about the SQL Rewrite and Generate Indexes processes and the resulting access plans. The Open Optimized SQL Details window appears after the SQL and index-set alternatives are reloaded into the SQL Optimizer window.

To review the Open Optimized SQL Details window

Select View | Show Open Optimized SQL Details when the SQL Optimizer window is active.

Note: The Optimized SQL Details cannot be viewed if the SQL Text Pane is the active pane in the SQL Optimizer window.

The Open Optimized SQL Details window has the following tabs:

Summary Tab

The Summary tab provides detailed information about each SQL and index-set alternative and changes that have occurred in any of their access plans since the last SQL Rewrite or Generate Indexes was run.

Optimization Information

The optimization information includes the date and time of the last SQL Rewrite or Generate Indexes execution, how many alternatives were created, the connection information, and the optimization settings from the Options window at the time of the rewrite or index generation.

Last Saved Access Plan Information

The access plan information includes the date and time that the alternatives were saved, the number of alternatives created, connection information, and whether any of the access plans changed since the save. The changes are noted in the Current column as follows:

Current column


Cost only

The only change to the access plan was a change in the DB2 LUW Cost.

Structure and cost

Both the structure and DB2 LUW cost of the access plan changed.

Structure only

The structure of the access plan changed but the DB2 LUW cost remained the same.


The current access plan is the same as the access plan that was saved with the SQL statement.

Refresh Plan button

The Refresh Plan button enables you to replace old access plans with the current plans. This process retrieves the current access plans, deletes any alternative that is now invalid, and removes any run time information. You can select to eliminate alternatives that now have duplicate access plans. After the access plans are refreshed, the Refresh Plan Details window is displayed.

Note: The Refresh Plan button is only enabled when there is a difference between the current access plan and the saved plan.

Changes Tab

The Changes tab displays the text of the SQL statement in the top pane. The bottom pane displays the saved access plan and the current access plan side by side for comparison.

User-Defined Temp Table Tab

The User-Defined Temp Table tab is available only if the SQL statements use a temporary table. When the alternatives were saved, the DDL for the temporary table is also saved. When the alternatives are reloaded, the DDL is displayed.
