Performance with Burn Factor

Hi I wondering if anyone knwos about the downside of change
the server wide burn factor figure, I am aware there used to
be a performanc ehit a long time ago , but soes this still
persist in 12.5 version and above, and how serious can the
performance hit be?

Thanks for any advice

I presume you mean that "burn factor" that refers to identity values.

If so, then the performance hit of reducing this value depends on how many
new values are generated per table per unit of time. The issue is that
the top of the pre-allocated identity values is stored on the OAM page of
the table. Each time a new batch of values needs to be pre-allocated the
OAM page needs to be written. If you generate 10s of thousands of inserts
per minute then having a large burn factor will reduce the number of times
the OAM page needs to be re-written. But if your tables only see moderate
insert activity then having a small value will not really have any
performance effect.

Note that I tend to use the "identity_gap" attribute at the table level to
set this value on a table by table basis.

Thank you for your clear responce.
is there no performance impact by changing the identity_gap
attribute at table level?

There is a performance impact if you use identity_gap.
The source is the same - every time a new burn set
has to be generated, ASE has to write the new value to
disk.  The performance impact using identity_gap is usually
greater than the burning set factor as identity_gap is
usually used to make the burning sets smaller than they
would be using the burning set factor (even when set to 1,
the burning set factor usually results in large burning sets
- the exact size depending on the datatype used for the column).

Performance implications of ID burning set factor
I would like to reduce the identity burning set factor to reduce the size of identity gaps following a shutdown with nowait. Clearly this has a performance implication, but I wonder if this really is significant. Does anyone have any experience of whether it is? I am using identities of numeric(10,0) and propose to reduce the burning set factor from 5000 to 1 - i.e., get 1000 IDs at once. Insert volumes are ~ 5000 per week, with weekly (normal) server reboots. My own feeling is that the performance overhead will be negligible, especially when compared to the alternative, w...

ASE performance
Hi, I'm new to Sybase, so excuse me if this is a stupid question, and I guess I might not supply enough information to make an informed judgement ... We've got ASE 12.0 running on a Sun Sparc server with 2 x 450Mhz processsors and 2 gig RAM + RAID. We run a script which updates a join table - i.e. a table with two integer columns with keys in them. The sql script inserts a total of 1.8 million rows into the table and the entire operation takes around 18 minutes to complete. Does this sound like reasonable performance - it feels slow to me, but I don't have any comp...

ASE Performance
Dear all, I'm using ASE 11.9. Does anyone know which is the most efficient whay to speed up the ASE server ? I have a stored procedure carries out following things using a CURSOR: - Read record from table_a - Do some data manipulation to the record read - Insert record to table_b if record is not exist in table_b - Update record to table_b if record is exist in table_b table_a contains around 40,000 records and table_b contains around 300,000 records. Originally, my coding in the stored procedure is as follow: SELECT .... FROM table_b WHERE ... IF @@rowcount > 0 ...

ASE performance
Hi there, ask a rather beginner question here. we have this ASE12.0 on Solaris 7. it's a enterprise 3000 machine, with 1G RAM, 2 CPUs both 168MHz. via /etc/system assigned 800M to ASE. All other settings in the configure file are mostly DEFAULT. we donot have many concurrent users on system most of the time, and the workload/ transaction is not very high. (most time, just 50 to 60 users online). however, lately users complains performance problem. esp just only one user was running a little big large report. and when I check sp_lock, actually very few locks, and just some shared...

performance tuning
Hi, All, I run select * statement from a view on both ASE11.5 and ASE12. The speeds for returning the value are very different. On ASE11.5, it only takes 1min while on ASE12, it takes 30min. ASE12 has bigger data caches for the database and tempdb than what the ASE11.5 has. Both of them have the same indexes. After I run sp_sysmon on ASE12, in the report of data cache management, ASE12 has high cache hit ratio (that is good) and high pool turnover (no good). Does that mean I need to increase the data cache for ASE12? I also noticed that in OS, ASE12 has very tight free mem...
