Check List for ASE 11.9.2 Performance Tuning

Dear all,

We need to troubleshoot the performance issue in an ASE 11.9.2 server.
During the system in a slow response time state, about 20 Sh_page locks (Non
Cursor Lock) found on the syslogins when I execute the sp_lock.
Can anyone give me some advise on which areas I should check first (may be a
check list) ?

You might want to read through the Performance & Tuning guide for things 
like query performance management with things like sp_showplan and 

What you could consider is this.  Any running task may be running with a 
bad query plan.  Here's my short-list of what to look at (and I could come 
up with a very long list).

sp_showplan any task that is running.
Look at its query plan to note what the query is doing.
Determine if something like a table scan is occurring and why.
Fix the table-scan issue through normal DBA tasks of either creating 
indexes or changing code.
rinse and repeat.

There are many things to do to diagnose and cleans performance problems 
within systems.  Depending on how mission-critical it is, you might want to 
hire consultants and or more skilled DBAs to oversee the system longer-term 
and make sure things like this don't happen often.  Far too many times, 
performance problems happen when DBAs or other management deem indexes as 
being too expensive for performance and don't put them on tables that 
really need them.  Or, indexes are designed wrong with not enough columns, 
for example.

Another bad situation that happens with Sybase ASE is datatype mismatches 
in parameter stored procedures or within joins between tables with 
differing datatypes of columns.  Make sure parameters to procedures match 
the columns that they are used on within queries of the stored procedure - 
that is a must for good performance.

If you have more questions - post them here.

Also, if you want a copy of a stored procedure I wrote called "sp_what" 
which shows only the running spids of your server instead of the 
oh-so-wonderful sp_who which does nothing much, let me know.

ASE optimizer behavior differences and Performance differences between ASEs: 11.50/ 11.9.2
Hi, I wish I could report that the ASE is performing better then our 11.50 AS instances, but then I would probably not be submitting this post. I have two similar ASE instances which appear to have identical table,indexes,segments,devices. The row counts of the two tables are only off by 1000 and that is expected. Showplan reveals that the optimizer is behaviing very differently between the two instances , not supprised. The new ASE is performing poorly and I can not proced with upgrading my other servers to 11.9.2 untill I accertain the performanc...

ASE 11.9.2 performance on Solaris 2.6 vs Solaris 8
We have been running ASE 11.9.2 on Solaris 2.6 for last three years and it seems fine. Lately we tested our applications (still built on Solaris 2.6) on a faster machine running on Solaris 8. Every app runs 40% faster except two key apps, which run even slower. Hardware: Old system: Sun Ultra 5, CPU 360 MHZ, RAM 128 MB, two EIDE 5400RPM hard disks Test system: Sun Blade 100, CPU 500 MHZ, RAM 128 MB, two EIDE 7200RPM hard disks 11.9.2 configurations on both systems are the same. Three devices are used on each system for master, sysprocsdev and userdata, and all are raw par...

Download Database from ASE 11.9.2 to ASE 11.0.2 ?
Dear All: We have a Sybase ASE11.9.2 on Window NT, and we already run some application on it about 6 months. Since the third party software we use cann't support ASE11.9.2, we must use ASE 11.0.2. Can we just backup the database of ASE11.9.2 then restore the backup database to ASE11.0.2 ? Has it any problem ? Or, We must do following procedure. 1) bcp out the data from ASE11.9.2 2) create the database on ASE11.0.2 3) bcp in the 1) data to ASE11.0.2 Can anyone tell me?? Teresa Young Teresa, The problem with dump and load is that the log format in 11.9.2 is much diff...

ASE 11.9.2
Hi, my question is what would be the cause of dropping down server performance in just 15-20 min. I had 20 users updating the database for 5-6 hours. Then I got a call that speed dramatically dropped down and for last 10 min only 2 users on the system and it's very slow. I checked errorlog and NT logs - no error messages. Where should I look and what could it be? Thing like that happens 3rd time for a couple of month. Usually I restart server when it happens, but also I restart NT server 1-2 per month as a part of maintenance procedure. I use ASE 11.9.2 on NT 4 (sp 4) ...

ASE 11.9.2 table scans and kills performance, any hints?
Our problem is that ASE 11.9.2 (select version returns: /1031/P/RS6000/AIX 4.2.1/FBO/FRI AUG 14 01:11:06 1998) does not seem to be taking advantage of indexes and table scans largest tables in a range of queries. Update statistics has been done and had no effect on query plan. All indexes and foreign keys seem to be in place. We are new to ASE and connecting from Powerbulider 6.5. Any ideas? Best regards, Andrzej Zaleski example query (all '_hist' tables are scanned): SELECT personel.per_serial, 0.01 styczen FROM personel, wymiar_hist, etata_hist, etatb_hist...

Transferring database ASE 11.9.2 -> ASE 11.5
Hello, I need to transfer a database from a ASE 11.9.2 server to a ASE 11.5 server. (Servers have the same specs and run Windows NT 4.0). The database doesn't have many objects such as tables, users, Views, SP's etc. etc. It has a 400 MB device for data and 100 MB Device for the log, with standard segmentation. It's relatively small. I understand from this newsgroup that dumping on a newer release and loading on an older release is not an option. Now I figure I have to do the following: - Create a data and a log device with similar names and sizes on the ASE 11.5 se...

ASE 12 running with ASE 11.9.2 and RS 11.5
Hi, I have a customer that asks the following question: "Are there any issues running Sybase 32 and 64 bit applications on the same box? What about replication? Is it possible for us to upgrade to 12 repserver and dataserver on our central complex and continue to run 11.5 repserver/11.9.2 dataserver at remotes?" I would think that this configuration would be ok, but I thought I'd better verify it.

ODBC recordset performance ASE 11.9.2 versus 12.0 (select method cursor)
Hi All, We are having a performance problem retrieving results back from Sybase 12 via ODBC. The simplest way to reproduce the problem is to use MS Access and attach a Sybase 12.0 and a Sybase 11.9 table via access. There is about 16000 records in each of the tables, the Sybase 11.9 table takes 10 seconds to open, the Sybase 12.0 table takes 75 seconds to open. The tables do not have PK's on them. The server configs and hardware is similar. The ODBC driver version we are using is Merant 3.50, although I can reproduce the problem in version 3.11 as well. The performance s...
