2764059 - CPU overhead occurs when multiple queries concurrently running on a big compressed table - SAP ASE


  • CPU usage increased very fast when multiple queries running on a big compressed table at the same time. 
  • Even the queries do not return any rows, the same issue will still happen on a compressed table.
  • May see the stack trace of spid on decompress__column_by_colinfo for most of the time.
  • However, the same queries running on a UN-compressed with same DDL and data volume does not lead to CPU overhead.
  • "capture compression statistics" is enabled.
