How can I optimize the query for reduce CPU time :

SET STATISTICS TIME ON
exec sp_executesql N'select N0."TESTID",N0."TESTNAME",N0."SYMTEST2",N0."SYMTEST3",N0."SYMTEST4",N0."SYMTEST5",N0."SYMTEST1",N0."CCY",N0."COUNTRY",N0."EXCHGID",N0."STATUS",N0."MKTGROUP" from "dbo"."TESTURITY" N0

What datatype is N0."TESTID", is it numeric, Char or varchar. Look at the table definition.

Hi,

add this hint with( maxdop 1 ) and see what the statistics are like then.

Now why the emphasis on cpu?

Assuming that you can do it as you are selecting them, put your IDs to search for in a Table, say #tempTable
and use [...] FROM TESTURITY No INNER JOIN #tempTable t ON No.TESTID = t.TESTID

First step for me is to make this a bit more readable.  Please verify that this still works (produces expected results).  While you're at it, please time this version's execution.

We can then test to see if the order of the string literals matters:

Where can I use option maxdop 0 ?

With the order of the string literals matters :

SQL Server parse and compile time:
   CPU time = 0 ms, elapsed time = 0 ms.

 SQL Server Execution Times:
   CPU time = 0 ms,  elapsed time = 0 ms.
SQL Server parse and compile time:
   CPU time = 22 ms, elapsed time = 22 ms.

(1 row(s) affected)
SQL Server parse and compile time:
   CPU time = 0 ms, elapsed time = 0 ms.

Thats because the implecit conversion between nVarchar and Varchar requires CPU.
What version are you using, I belive this was fixed in SQL 2012. Is it by chance SQL 2008 R2

Quote from your top query:
"...N'@p0 nvarchar(50),@p1 nvarchar(50),@p2 nvarchar(50)..."
and
"testid VARCHAR(50)"
This conversion is stealing CPU from you. I had a similar case, and when testing I could see that it went away on SQL2012.

To prove it you can alter the table to nVarchar(50) on testid column. Try your Query and voila.

Altering is done on a test system, not production ofcource

Hi aikimark

I had a different system where the 3'd party program asked using a nVarchar value. The index was missing, fixed that on this column (a varchar). But to my suprise the index was Always scanned, not searched.

When I altered the column in the database (on a test Environment) the Query optimizer correctly started using index seeks instead of index Scans.

This to the expense of a bigger column was still a huge gain for the system. After getting a OK from the vendor we changed the column type on production to nVarchar, and rebuilt the index created earlier.

This case looks similar.

I have suggested two different versions of the query.  Have you run them?  What were the results?

I'm not the asker. I'm an expert with similar experience, sharing this to the asker. Suggesting a simple column change would answer if this works to save CPU cycles.

In your case you do and I quote:
"...replace the parameterized values with string literals".
Wich essentialy does the same thing.

The Query optimizer is clever enough these days to use the where clauses in the most efficient way.

I have NOT examined the Query, for that I would like execution plans, statistics and index definitions. I merely suggest a simple test changing a column to nVarchar, and retrying the question.

I sense that you might be annoyed with my suggestion. Thats not for you to decide, but the asker to try various suggestions. With this answer to you I hope Everything is resolved.

I don't Think this thread is the Place to question others suggestions.

Best regards Marten
