Optimizer Strategies

<number of> <optimizer_strategy_executes>, selectivity <percentage>%: <number of> rows read, <number of> rows qualified

Explanation

The ratio of read table rows to found table rows is poor when a particular access strategy (<optimizer_strategy_executes>) is used.

The access strategy can be one of the following strategies:

·        Primary key accesses
(
EQUAL CONDITION FOR KEY,
SUBQ CONDITION FOR KEY,
IN CONDITION FOR KEY)

·        Primary key range accesses
( RANGE CONDITION FOR KEY,
SUBQ CONDITION FOR KEY,
IN CONDITION FOR KEY)

·        Index accesses
(
EQUAL CONDITION FOR INDEX,
SUBQ CONDITION FOR INDEX,
IN CONDITION FOR INDEX)

·        Index range accesses
(
RANGE CONDITION FOR INDEX,
SUBQ CONDITION FOR INDEX,
IN CONDITION FOR INDEX)

·        Isolated index accesses
see: EXPLAIN statement: O,D,T,M Columns, column O (Only Index)
and
Index accesses

·        Isolated index range accesses
see: EXPLAIN statement: O,D,T,M columns, column O (Only Index)
and
Index range accesses

·        Isolated index scans
( INDEX SCAN)

User Response

Find the statement that causes this poor ratio of read rows to found rows, and check the access strategies for this statement.
