2266726 - monProcessStatement: APF reads not included in PhysicalReads - SAP ASE


  • PhysicalReads column from monProcessActivity and monProcessStatement monitoring tables
    • does not include Asynchronous Prefetch (APF) values for utility commands such as dbcc checks
    • only show regular physical reads and no APF reads.
  • This output example illustrates a discrepancy when comparing the statistics io output with PhysicalReads value in monProcessStatement
    • set statistics io output shows :
         Table: l_tab scan count 1, logical reads: (regular=2732 apf=0 total=2732),
         physical reads: (regular=8 apf=2724 total=2732), apf IOs used=2724
    • monitoring from another isql session :
         select PhysicalReads from monProcessStatement
  • Only the regular physical reads are included in monProcessStatement - it should show 2732 : 8 (regular) + 2724 (apf).
  • PhysicalReads never surpasses the regular value from query statistics.
