Trying Out Interleaved Execution

Dmitry Pilugin has a test of interleaved execution of a multi-statement table-valued function:

First of all, note that Estimated Number of Rows is 10 000 now, which is correct and equals Actual Number of Rows. Due to the correct estimate the optimizer decided that there are enough rows to benefit from a partial (local/global) aggregation and introduced a partial Hash aggregate before the join.

If you take a Profiler, enable events SP:StmtStarting, SP:StmtCompleted, SQL:StmtStarting, SQL:StmtCompleted and run the query without and with a TF, you’ll see what does it actually mean “interleaved” in terms of the execution sequence.

During the regular execution the query starts executing, then the function is executed, the query continues execution and finishes the execution. We see the following event sequence:

This is a very thorough post, but if you have multi-statement TVFs, you absolutely want to read it.

Itzik Ben-Gan continues his series on grouping and aggregating data by looking at the hash match aggregation process: The estimated CPU cost for the Hash Aggregate in the plan for Query 8 is 0.166344, and in Query 9 is 0.16903. It could be an interesting exercise to try and figure out exactly in what way […]

Table Variables And Parallelism

Erik Darling shows your brain on table variables: Inserts and other modifications to table variables can’t be parallelized. This is a product limitation, and the XML warns us about it. The select could go parallel if the cardinality estimate were more accurate. This could potentially be addressed with a recompile hint, or with Trace Flag […]
