I have a problem with my ASA.
SQL Anywhere Network Server Version 188.8.131.5252
Connection limit (licensed seats): 3
By ASA: Processors detected: 1 (containing 8 logical processors)
In reality: I have 2CPU xQuadracore
I cannot get ASA to use more than one core. In real situation I have big SQL that contains logic like
select fun(id), id from table1.
Fun(id) executes quite long (over 5 sec) and number of rows is more 30k.
I have tried to make parallel run this query using something like
select fun(id), id from table1 where id <15000 union all select fun(id), id from table1 where id >=15000
but still only one core was in busy (looks like ASA runs "select" part on one core and fetching on second core). When I do Get query plan - it is visible that optimizer divided query into 2 parallel tasks.
Then to eliminate effect of disks etc, I have created 2 functions - emu() and emu2() and I have tried to run these functions in parallel. But still only one core is in use (in my understanding optimized shows that 2 tasks can be executed in parallel)
select -> into two parallel tasks "dummy" and "dummy"
What can be wrong?
Asa starts like:
demo.db is from Sybase distribution
I have tried different parameters of max_query_tasks
My functions and select:
create function emu () returns bigint begin declare i BIGINT ; declare i2 BIGINT ; SET i = -3000000; WHILE i <= 3000000 LOOP SET i = i + 1; SET i2 = -4; WHILE i2 <= 0 LOOP SET i2 = i2 + 1; END LOOP; END LOOP; return i end go create function emu2 () returns bigint begin declare i BIGINT ; declare i2 BIGINT ; SET i = -3000000; WHILE i <= 3000000 LOOP SET i = i + 1; SET i2 = -4; WHILE i2 <= 0 LOOP SET i2 = i2 + 1; END LOOP; END LOOP; return i end go select emu() union select emu2();
or very similar example (if you say that no tables in query below):
select emu(),id from customers union select emu2(), id from contacts;
p.s. interesting, that if I run my selects and functions on IQ 15x, then 4 cores are in use (IQ on server with 4 cores)
The code you posted doesn't do anything at all with tables, and the rules for intra-query parallelism only talks about table-related processing; see http://dcx.sybase.com/index.html#1201/en/dbusage/parallelism.html
If the code you posted is not the actual code you are interested in, please post the actual code; perhaps someone might have an idea. For example, one way to force parallelism is to use an EVENT; see http://sqlanywhere.blogspot.ca/2012/12/intra-procedure-parallelism_5.html
