3326910 - Feature request to have des_greedyalloc persists between ASE reboots - SAP ASE


  • With large number of processors, latch contention on allocation page becomes an issue. "greedy allocation" scheme provides a solution. This feature is available since ASE 12.0.
  • "greedy allocation" scheme keeps a list of 16 allocation hints for page allocation instead of 1 hint per object.
  • Use dbcc tune command to enable/disable the "greedy allocation" for an object. This dbcc command is not  persistent during reboot. Once the ASE is reboot,  this command needs to run again to enable the "greedy allocation".
