SQL Optimizer for SAP ASE 3.8 - Installation Guide

View Open Optimized SQL Details

The Open Optimized SQL Details window displays information about the optimization process and the resulting query plans. The Open Optimized SQL Details window displays after the SQL statements are reloaded into the SQL Optimizer window. You can review the Open Optimized SQL Details window once it has been closed by selecting View | Show Open Optimized SQL Details when the SQL Optimizer window is active.

Note: The Optimized SQL Details cannot be viewed if the SQL Editor 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 the optimization of the SQL statements and changes that may have occurred in the query plans of the original SQL or alternative SQL statements since the optimization process was done.

Optimization Information

The optimization information includes the date and time of the optimization, how many alternatives were created, the connection information, and the optimization settings from the Preferences window at the time of this optimization.

Last Saved Query Plan Information

The query plan information includes the date and time of the SQL statements that were saved, how many alternatives were created, the connection information, and if any of the query plans have changed since the time they were saved.

During the process of opening the Save Optimized SQL, the current query plan is retrieved and compared to the saved query plan. The changes are noted in the Current column as follows:

Current column item Description

Cost only

The only change to the query plan was a change in the Estimated I/O cost.

Structure and cost

Both the structure and Estimated I/O cost of the query plan changed.

Structure only

The structure of the query plan changed but the Estimated I/O cost remained the same.


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

Refresh Plan Button

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

Note: The Refresh Plan button is only enabled when there is a difference between the current query 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 query plan and the current query 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 Optimized SQL statements were saved, the DDL for creating the temporary table is saved with them and when the SQL statements are reloaded the DDL displays.
