Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4587) Add tools for improved analysis and understanding of query plans and execution statistics

C.S. Nirmal J. Fernando commented on DERBY-4587:
------------------------------------------------

Hi Rick,

Thanks for your feedback.

1) I'll modify the arguments, in my next patch.

2) Don't you think that a user will dislike when plans for all the tracked statements get
generated each and every time he executed the tool? It may take considerable amount of time
given that there are lots of tracked queries. Also we may get into trouble when naming the
generated files. What do you think?

3) Pardon me about the comment, as I said my above reply to Kristian I'll modify it to "Apache
Derby Query Explainer (DERBY-4587)" in my next patch.

PS: I suspect that the tool does not need Xalan.jar in the CLASSPATH, both to pass tests and
generate query plans. Instead it uses the inbuilt Xalan classes in java. Can you please verify
this, if you got some time?

Thanks.

> I think it would be great to see some work in the area of tools for helping
> with the analysis of complex query execution. Quite frequently, users of
> Derby have trouble comprehending (a) how their query is being translated
> into a query plan by the optimizer, and (b) what the execution-time resource
> usage of the various parts of the query is.
> There are low-level features in Derby which capture this information and
> record it, such as logQueryPlan, and the XPLAIN tables, but there is a lot
> of opportunity for designing higher-level tools which can process the query
> plan and execution statistics information and present it in a more
> comprehensible fashion.
