tempdb/lazy writes/HK

After reading thru the docs for tempdb, tempdb write optimization, and
the cache config option "HK ignore cache" and checkpoints, I have the
following question:

If a set up a second tempdb, bind it to a cache that's as big as the
database, set HK ignore cache, will this in effect stop physical
writes in that secondary tempdb to physical disk?

Or will they ultimately get written to disk by checkpoint?  

Even if ASE, in this scenario ultimately writes to disk, is my thought
process correct in that it's really not necessary in the specific
example above, since it's a tempdb type database, and I have a cache
as big as the database?

Performance Tuning [Inserts] in tempdb
I have a Web Based Application that the DBA is "engouraging" me to switch for ASE12.5 to ASA9. I have made many changes in my queries and driver setup. The App allows me login and submit my queries but they only rarely come to completion. In ASE12.5 they take about 3 minutes and ASA9 they are taking about 44 minutes (this is rediculous). Let me model out our basic submission: 1) generate a query using Velocity template macros 1a) The query will create a temp table #period 1b) populate #period with appropriate data 1c) create a #Utilization temp table 1...

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) ? Cheers, Jack You might want to read through the Performance & Tuning guide for things like query performance management with things like sp_showplan and sp_sysmon. What you could consider is this. Any running task may be running with a bad query plan. Her...

ASE 15.0.2 Row-level locking for DDL / tempdb performance
Hello, I was trying to compare the tempdb performance between 12.5.3 and 15.0.2 by simulating heavy DDL / transaction activity in tempdb. Basically, I ran the below loop in 16 parallel sessions in tempdb. [n] represents 1 to 16, sourcedb has tables objects1 to objects16. Session1 will use sourcedb..objects1 / #objects1, Session2 will use sourcedb..objects2 / #objects2 etc., declare @cnt int while(1 = 1) begin select * into #objects[n] from sourcedb..objects[n] insert into #objects[n] select * from sourcedb..objects[n] create index obj[n]_idx on #objects[n](id) delete fr...

Hi, Is anyone out there doing ASE to ASE replication using SQL remote? If you are have created your own version of the SSEXTRACT utility to set up a replicant database in ASE rather than ASA? Or does anyone know if SYBASE has created a version SSEXTRACT for use with ASE to ASE replication? Thanks in advance Doug Trainer Hi Douglas, I thought the SQL Remote Replication support in ASE11.5 was meant for a consolidate-database only (by design)! At least that was what Sybase said when they announced support for SQL Remote technology support in ASE11.5. I will be happy to...

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...

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...

tempdb performance
It's my understanding tempdb performs better on file system than on raws. Is this still the case? What unix parameters need to be set on the files system? Should 'allow sql server async i/o' bet set to 1, or does this only pertain to raws? Running ASE EBF 10391 64bit on HP/UX 11.0. ...

I setup 2 ASE servers (same hw) in other sites, but one of ASE is runnig so slow.

Could it be possible to take scripts from ASA and load them in an ASE Any information is welcome jean-fran�ois ASA supports a fairly large sub-set of Transact-SQL, so if you write your stored procedures and triggers in ASA using T-SQL, you should be able to create scripts that will run against both ASE and ASA. If you're planning to do this though, I would suggest developing your database schema against ASA, since everything you write in T-SQL in ASA will be supported on ASE, but the reverse is not true. Check out the section in the ASA documentation entitled "Tra...

Performance tuning
Hi, We are using Jconnect 6.0.5 (latest EBF). We found that 'select db_name' was getting called before each and every sql update/insert. We are not sure why it is doing this. We need to prevent this unnecessary db call. Does any one have any idea Thanks Lachu Hi Lachu, This sounds like some JDBC Call might be happening in your application - offheand I don't know exactly what, but something like Connection.getCatalog() I don't think jConnect caches this sort of thing - so it might be the application code makes the call for each command execution. If yo...

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...

Is there a way to create and analyze some kind of trace files with SQL Anywhere 5.5? I have a program that issues "generated" SQL statements. I'd like to quickly look for those that create full table scans in any of the used tables to see if I can optimize data access. TIA Peter Peter Hiemenz Hilden, near Duesseldorf Germany I wrote something like this a couple months back. It interrogates the trace file that PowerBuilder produces. It's rather proprietary since it's one of the tools that I use when I do Performance & Tuning cons...
