Performance and Tuning: Adaptive Server Enterprise 15.7 Query Optimization

5 days
  • Explain optimization tools and their use
  • Discuss the steps involved in executing code from input to return of result set
  • Use code to pass hints to the Optimizer
  • Perform tasks to evaluate the behavior of the optimizer
  • Implement the most efficient data-change and data-retrieval T- SQL code in your queries and stored procedures
  • Force optimisation steps on the Optimizer

This course is geared towards developers and developer consultants who have the knowledge similar as explain on the SAP-EDB116 course
