2992476 - sp_iqcheckdb DBCC consistency check performance slow on some tables - SAP IQ


  • Running a DBCC consistency check (sp_iqcheckdb procedure) on some tables takes considerably longer than expected, in the magnitude of hours instead on minutes.

  • This is only seen for tables containing wide columns that are Flat FPs and that these columns contain a large number of rows and distinct values.

  • Affected FP columns can be identified by examining the timing messages from DBCC printed to the iqmsg file with Set temporary option DBCC_LOG_PROGRESS='ON'; 

  • Customers are looking for ways to improve the performance of DBCC checks  on large FP columns.



  • SAP IQ 16.x on any platform ,  either simplex or multiplex.
