  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    This invention is related to the field of electronic database management systems.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0003]
    SQL tuning is a very critical aspect of database performance tuning. Typically the database administrator (DBA) or an application developer performs the tuning process. However, it is often a very challenging task. First, it requires a high level of expertise in several complex areas: query optimization, access design, and SQL design. Second, it is a time consuming process because each statement is unique and needs to be tuned individually. Third, it requires an intimate knowledge of the database as well as the application. Finally, the SQL tuning activity is a continuous task because the SQL workload and the database are always changing.
  • [0004]
    For example, because the query optimizer relies on statistics of the query objects to function properly, it is important that proper statistics are gathered and kept up to date upon data and schema changes. The problem is that the statistics are potentially expensive to collect. This is especially true if complex data statistics are supported by the database system, like multi-column histograms, either within or across tables. In this context, it is unrealistic to collect all possible data statistics since the number is virtually unlimited. Even without complex statistics, few database systems can afford to collect histogram statistics on every skewed column.
  • [0005]
    Hence only a subset of the statistics can generally be collected for a given database system and the problem is to determine what is this appropriate subset. It is defined as the one which gives the best improvement quality of execution plans while, at the same time, being fast enough to collect (generally the DBA can dedicate at most few hours per day or per week to refresh optimizer statistics). It is unrealistic to expect that the DBA or the application developer will be able to determine this appropriate subset since he will have to know which data statistics are really needed by the query optimizer for his database system. This problem is even worse since the appropriate subset might fluctuate overtime as the SQL workload changes.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • [0000]
    Overview
  • [0011]
    The embodiments of the invention are described using the term “SQL”, however, the invention is not limited to just this exact database query language, and indeed may be used in conjunction with other database query languages and constructs.
  • [0012]
    To automatically determine which set of statistics would help the query optimizer improve the execution plan for a SQL statement, each high load query is auto-tuned with an automatic SQL tuning optimizer as shown in FIG. 1. Every time an error is made when estimating the cardinality of an intermediate result, the SQL-driven statistics collection component attempts to determine the cause of that mistake, i.e. the process determines if a missing statistic is causing that particular mistake. For example, if the query has a predicate t1.c1.=5 and the optimizer makes a mistake when it computes the selectivity of the predicate, the SQL-driven statistics collection component will determine that a histogram is missing on column t1.c1. A new entry will be created for that histogram. The process will also record the query associated with the statistic, plus compute an estimate of the time to create that histogram.
  • [0013]
    This process will be repeated for every query in the SQL tuning set. At the end, the maximum set of statistic objects to create is analyzed. If the sum of the estimated creation time for these objects is less than the time constraint, all these statistics can be collected. Otherwise only a subset is collected. The subset can be determined using a knapsack based approach. The weight of each object is the time to create a statistic object while the benefit of creating the statistic object is computed based on the overall improvement of the SQL workload.
  • [0000]
    Automatic SQL Tune Advisor Architecture
  • [0014]
    The Automatic SQL tuning process is implemented by the Automatic Tuning Optimizer, which performs several tuning analyses during the process. The output of a tuning analysis is a set of tuning recommendations, which may be presented to the user. FIG. 1 shows the Automatic SQL Tuning architecture and the functional relationship between its two sub-components. The SQL tune advisor 110 receives a SQL statement 117 and information to tune the statement. The information can be related to missing or stale statistics, 120. The information may be a set of tuning hints stored in SQL profile 130. The information may be related to missing indexes 140. Also, the information may be about the construct of the SQL statement 150. The tune advisor 110 provides the statement and its related information to auto-tuning optimizer 115. The optimizer automatically tunes the statement with the information by performing auto-tuning processes. The statistics analyzer 160 generates adjustment factors to correct missing or stale statistics. The SQL profiler 165 generates tuning hints for the statement in the form of a profile. The access path analyzer 170 generates indexes. The SQL structure analyzer 175 generates recommendations for rewriting the statement.
  • [0000]
    SQL Profiling
  • [0015]
    A profiling process is performed by the optimizer during the tuning process to adjust statistics that are used in generating an execution plan for a SQL statement. The profiling process verifies that statistics are not missing or stale, validates the estimates made by the query optimizer for intermediate results, and determines the correct optimizer settings. The Automatic Tuning Optimizer builds a SQL Profile from the tuning information it generates during the statistics analysis (e.g., provides missing statistics for an object), validation of intermediate results estimate, and detection of the best setting for optimizer parameters. When a SQL Profile is built, the Automatic Tuning Optimizer generates a user recommendation to accept a SQL profile.
  • [0000]
    Statistics Analysis
  • [0016]
    The goal of statistics analysis is to verify that statistics are not missing or stale. The query optimizer logs the types of statistics that are actually used during the plan generation process, in preparation for the verification process. For example, when a SQL statement contains an equality predicate, it logs the column number of distinct values, whereas for a range predicate it logs the minimum and maximum column values information.
  • [0017]
    Once the logging of used statistics is complete, the query optimizer checks if each of these statistics is available on the associated query object (i.e. table, index or materialized view). If the statistic is available then it verifies whether the statistic is up-to-date. To verify the accuracy of a statistic, it samples data from the corresponding query object and compares it to the statistic.
  • [0018]
    If a statistic is found to be missing, the query optimizer will generate auxiliary information to supply the missing statistic. If a statistic is available but stale, it will generate auxiliary information to compensate for staleness.
  • [0000]
    Estimates Analysis
  • [0019]
    One feature of a cost-based query optimizer is its ability to derive the size of intermediate results. For example, the optimizer estimates the number of rows from applying table filters when deciding which join algorithm to pick.
  • [0020]
    One factor that causes the optimizer to generate a sub-optimal plan is wrong estimate of intermediate result sizes. Wrong estimates can be caused by a combination of the following factors: The predicate (filter or join) is too complex to use standard statistical methods to derive the number of rows (e.g., the columns are compared thru a complex expression like (a*b)/c=10), The data distribution of the column used in the predicate is skewed, and there is no histogram, leading the optimizer to assume a uniform data distribution, or The data in column values is correlated but the optimizer is not aware of it, causing the optimizer to assume data independence.
  • [0021]
    During SQL Profiling, the Automatic Tuning Optimizer validates the estimates made by the query optimizer, and compensates for missing information or wrong estimates. The validation process may involve running part of the query on a sample of the input data.
  • [0022]
    Parameter Settings Analysis
  • [0023]
    The Automatic Tuning Optimizer uses the past execution history of a SQL statement to determine the correct optimizer settings. For example, if the execution history shows that a SQL statement is only partially executed in the majority of times then the appropriate setting will be to optimize it for first n rows, where n is derived from the execution history. This constitutes a customized parameter setting for the SQL statement. (Note that past execution statistics are available in the Automatic Workload Repository (AWR) presented later).
  • [0000]
    SQL Profile
  • [0024]
    The tuning information produced from the above three analyses is stored in a SQL Profile. Once a SQL Profile is created, it is used in conjunction with the existing statistics by the compiler to produce a well-tuned plan for the corresponding SQL statement. FIG. 2 shows the process flow of the creation and use of a SQL Profile. The process can have two separate phases: an Automatic SQL Tuning phase, and a regular optimization phase. During the Automatic SQL Tuning phase, a DBA selects a SQL statement 210 and runs the SQL Tuning Advisor. The SQL Tuning Advisor invokes the Automatic Tuning Optimizer to generate tuning recommendations, 220. The Automatic Tuning Optimizer generates a SQL Profile along with other recommendations, 230. After a SQL Profile is built, it is stored in the data dictionary, once it is accepted by the user, 240.
  • [0025]
    Later, during the regular optimization phase, a user issues the same SQL statement, 250. The query optimizer finds the matching SQL profiles from the data dictionary, 260, and uses the SQL profile information to build a well-tuned execution plan, 270. The use of SQL Profiles is completely transparent to the user.
  • [0026]
    The creation and use of a SQL Profile doesn't require changes to the application source code. Therefore, SQL profiling provides a way to tune SQL statements issued from packaged applications where the users have no access to or control over the application source code.
  • [0000]
    Automatic Statistic Collection Process
  • [0027]
    The automatic statistics collection process tunes high load SQL statements in a SQL tuning set using the automatic SQL Tuning optimizer. The optimizer automatically tunes each SQL statement by profiling it and by recommending other tuning actions to the end user. FIG. 3 represents an illustration of the SQL tuning process. To determine which set of statistics would help the query optimizer, each query in the SQL tuning set is first auto-tuned with an automatic SQL tuning optimizer, 310. Every time an error is made when estimating the cardinality of an intermediate result, 320, the SQL-driven statistics collection component attempts to determine the cause of that mistake, i.e. the process determines if a missing statistic is causing that particular mistake, 330. For example, if the query has a predicate t1.c1.=5 and the optimizer makes a mistake when it computes the selectivity of the predicate, the SQL-driven statistics collection component will determine that a histogram is missing on column t1.c1. A new entry in a list of missing or erroneous statistics will be created for that histogram, 340. The process will also record the query associated with the statistic, plus compute an estimate of the time to create that histogram, 350.
  • [0028]
    This process will be repeated for every query in the SQL tuning set. At the end, the maximum set of statistic objects to create is analyzed. If the sum of the estimated creation time for these objects is less than the time constraint, all these statistics can be collected, 350. Otherwise only a subset is collected. The subset can be determined using a knapsack based approach. The weight of each object is the time to create a statistic object while the benefit of creating the statistic object is computed based on the overall improvement of the SQL workload.
  • [0029]
    Accepting SQL profile recommendations closes an iteration of the SQL tuning loop; SQL profiling will most likely improve the execution plan of the targeted set of SQL statements, hence reducing their overall performance impact on the system. This will be reflected in the performance measurements being collected. The next tuning cycle can then begin with a different set of high-load SQL statements. The process can be repeated several times until the desired performance level is achieved.
  • [0030]
    The Automatic SQL Tuning process, which is integrated with the query optimizer, provides a manageability framework for a self-managing database to automatically collect statistics for high-load SQL statements. The Automatic SQL Tuning process tunes SQL statements and produces a set of comprehensive tuning recommendations. In addition to recommendations, it may also build a SQL Profile to store tuning hints for the statement. The user may decide whether to accept the recommendations. Once a SQL Profile is created, the query optimizer will use it to generate a well-tuned plan for the corresponding SQL statement. A tuning object called the SQL Tuning Set provides a store for a SQL workload to be automatically tuned. With the automatic tuning process, automatic tuning results can scale over a large number of queries and can evolve over time with changes in the application workload and the underlying data. Automatic SQL tuning is also far cheaper than manual tuning. Together, these reasons position automatic SQL tuning as an effective and economical alternative to manual tuning.
  • [0031]
    FIG. 4 is a block diagram of a computer system 400 suitable for implementing an embodiment of automatically collecting statistics to improve the execution plan of a high load SQL statement. Computer system 400 includes a bus 402 or other communication mechanism for communicating information, which interconnects subsystems and devices, such as processor 404, system memory 406 (e.g., RAM), static storage device 408 (e.g., ROM), disk drive 410 (e.g., magnetic or optical), communication interface 412 (e.g., modem or ethernet card), display 414 (e.g., CRT or LCD), input device 416 (e.g., keyboard), and cursor control 418 (e.g., mouse or trackball).
  • [0032]
    According to one embodiment of the invention, computer system 400 performs specific operations by processor 404 executing one or more sequences of one or more instructions contained in system memory 406.
