Dear all expertist,

Right now we found out that one SQL SP is running good on test/QA platform but not on production, may I know what can cause this?

I knew that different:
1)Code
2) schema
3) index

can cause this, what else ?

I think I need to update statistics at the first step to see if it helps.

I don't want to go for a hard way.

Compare the execution plans of both QA and Production, and confirm the same indexes are used. Next step is to check the fragmentation of your indexes, and update your statistics.

Check it the Query in the SP is using multiple INDEX at the same time, if so force an INDEX in the code, which would let the Query to consider only the INDEX forced rather multiple.

Yet same problem persists, plz go ahead with update statistics

Production has more data that QA and the Stored Procedure has not been optimized.

acperkins,

the production will always has more data then QA.

It is the same SP being different when running on production and QA, I would like to see why .

anujnb,

What if execution plan is not the same? "check the fragmentation of your indexes," can be done by rebuilting  index but our DB has run for a long time and it just start to happen


waltersnowslinarnold,

how to "force an INDEX in the code"?

And again, that would be because in production you have more data and the query has not been optimized.  This means that the Execution Plans are different.  When you can wrap your head around that we can try and help you more.

You could force an INDEX in the following manner;

syntax;

SELECT
col1, col2, . . .
FROM tableName WITH (INDEX(indexName))
