About SQL Repository

The SQL Repository stores the SQL statements that are used in the analysis of database performance. These may be SQL statements that you have identified as critical to the performance of your database application.

The SQL Repository is stored in a file directory that can be accessed by your computer, either a directory on your local computer or a network drive. This directory is specified in the Options settings.
