Optimizer will not be able to read stats on those columns which have functions as it is busy converting functions.

Limits BTEQ output to errors and request processing statistics. Not only that but the business execs can query the data themselves with little or no support from IT—saving more time and more money.

I bteeq say give it a try to see if this would be much better option compared to standard “temp table ” against the in list Say for example: PPI does not alter data distribution, it only creates partitions on data already distributed based on PI. Usually PPI’s are defined on a table in order to increase query efficiency by avoiding full table scans without the overhead and maintenance costs of secondary indexes. The best improvement is obtained when the volume of table updates is large in relation to the size of the table.

Check for explain to compare difference, if still the same Betq Returns the following response: Please make sure to collect stats on commadns index since optimizer might have to decide whether reading SI sub table is faster than going for full table scan reading all the amps I want to point out some Limitations of secondary index 1.


Multi column stats is not a good option to go for join scenarios as it can bring down the performance of queries 3. If still you cojmands find some kind nteq issue try to find out skewness of column using following query and try to rectify the issue.

BTEQ Basic TEradata Query is a command-driven utility used to 1 access and manipulate data, and 2 format reports for both print and screen output.


If your table is big and data was unevenly distributed then dynamic sampling may not get right information and your performance will suffer. So think wisely before going for Secondary index or use the beauty of dynamic secondary index concept which supports creation of Secondary index when required and dropping of it when not used hence saving considerable amount of space, I want to share one of the scenarios where we had a table with set of date columns and Only PI defined on that table, A query was run on particular date range of that table ,which went on for full table scan taking more than 4 hours to complete.

If one of the tables is partitioned, the rows won’t be ordered the same, and the task, in effect, becomes a set of sub-joins, one for each partition of the PPI table. What would happen if employee table had million records and every time deptno would have to undergo Translation.
