SQL Optimizer for Sybase ASE

SQL performance optimization through SQL validation

Scan and analyze SQL to easily identify potential performance issues directly from running SQL statements, T-SQL, or other source code.

SQL Optimizer for Sybase ASE maximizes your SQL performance with a completely automated approach. Detect and analyze problems directly from running SQL statements, T-SQL or other source codes.  This advanced tool eliminates manual, time-intensive tasks, and actively searches for ways to improve performance. Plus, it helps you analyze , optimize and manage performance changes so critical applications can run faster.

Features

Performance diagnostics

SQL inspector — Diagnoses bottlenecks by comparing  and presenting SQL activity data, and detects poorly performing  and resource-heavy SQL statements.

SQL collector — Groups statements by the suspected severity of performance issues, and captures executing SQL statement based on your benchmarks.

SQL scanner —  Proactively targets inefficient SQL statements by analyzing SQL query plans, and extracts SQL statements in files, applications and database objects.

Performance monitor — Monitors Adaptive Server’s performance in real time, plus takes snapshots and  schedules monitors of its performance data and diagnostic metrics.

Performance optimization

SQL optimizer — Identifies the most efficient SQL statements by benchmark testing SQL alternatives, and creates a list of semantically equivalent SQL statements.

Index advisor —  Proposes new index scenarios for better performance by studying the syntax of an SQL statement and the database structure.

Abstract plan manager — Makes it easy to generate, view, delete and amend abstract plans and groups through a graphical interface, plus streamlines abstract plan maintenance.

Performance management

Configuration analyzer — Analyzes how modifying Adaptive Server’s parameters would impact performance, and evaluates potential improvements before making permanent configuration changes.

Index usage analyzer —  Eliminates unused indexes to create more space  – as well as accelerate the speed of DML statements – after analyzing query plans from SQL statements located in the SQL repository.

Index impact analyzer — Highlights the index set alternative that offers the highest performance gain with the least database impact, and identifies which SQL statements are affected by new indexes.

Migration analyzer — Tracks query plan and cost changes for better performance, and integrates abstract plan management to stabilize SQL performance during migrations. Also, helps stop performance degradations during upgrades and application rollouts.
