Optimization Thresholds – Grouping and Aggregating Data, Part 3

This article is the third in an arrangement about enhancement edges for gathering and conglomerating information. In Part 1 I secured the preordered Stream Aggregate calculation. In Part 2 I secured the nonpreordered Sort + Stream Aggregate calculation. In this part I cover the Hash Match (Aggregate) calculation, which I’ll allude to just as Hash Aggregate. I additionally give an outline and a correlation between the calculations I cover in Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

I’ll utilize a similar example database called PerformanceV3, which I utilized in the past articles in the arrangement. Simply ensure that before you run the cases in the article, you first run the accompanying code to drop two or three unneeded files:

DROP INDEX idx_nc_sid_od_cid ON dbo.Orders;

DROP INDEX idx_unc_od_oid_i_cid_eid ON dbo.Orders;

The main two files that ought to be left on this table are idx_cl_od (bunched with orderdate as the key) and PK_Orders (nonclustered with orderid as the key).

Hash Aggregate

The Hash Aggregate calculation composes the gatherings in a hash table in light of some inside picked hash work. Not at all like the Stream Aggregate calculation, it doesn’t have to expend the columns in gather arrange. Think about the accompanying question (we’ll call it Query 1) for instance (driving a hash total and a serial arrangement):

SELECT empid, COUNT(*) AS numorders

FROM dbo.Orders

Gathering BY empid

Alternative (HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

Figure 1 demonstrates the arrangement for Query 1.

Figure 1: Plan for Query 1

The arrangement checks the lines from the bunched list utilizing an Ordered: False property (filter isn’t required to convey the columns requested by the list key). Commonly, the streamlining agent will want to check the tightest covering file, which for our situation happens to be the grouped file. The arrangement constructs a hash table with the assembled segments and the totals. Our question asks for an INT-composed COUNT total. The arrangement really figures it as a BIGINT-composed esteem, subsequently the Compute Scalar administrator, applying verifiable transformation to INT.

Microsoft doesn’t openly share the hash calculations that they utilize. This is exceptionally exclusive innovation. All things considered, to delineate the idea, we should assume that SQL Server utilizes the % 250 (modulo 250) hash work for our question above. Prior to preparing any columns, our hash table has 250 basins speaking to the 250 conceivable results of the hash work (0 through 249). As SQL Server forms each column, it applies the hash work <current empid> % 250. The outcome is a pointer to one of the cans in our hash table. In the event that the container’s connected rundown doesn’t yet incorporate the present line’s gathering, SQL Server adds another gathering to the connected rundown with the gathering segments (empid for our situation) and the underlying total esteem (include 1 our case). On the off chance that the gathering as of now exists, SQL Server refreshes the total (adds 1 to the tally for our situation). For instance, assume that SQL Server happens to process the accompanying 10 pushes first:

orderid empid

320 3

30 5

660 253

820 3

850 1

1000 255

700 3

1240 253

350 4

400 255

Figure 2 demonstrates three conditions of the hash table: before any columns are handled, after the initial 5 lines are prepared, and after the initial 10 lines are handled. Every thing in the connected rundown holds the tuple (empid, COUNT(*)).

Figure 2: Hash table states

Once the Hash Aggregate administrator wraps up all information pushes, the hash table has all gatherings with the last condition of the total.

Like the Sort administrator, the Hash Aggregate administrator requires a memory give, and in the event that it comes up short on memory, it needs to spill to tempdb; in any case, while arranging requires a memory give that is corresponding to the quantity of lines to be arranged, hashing requires a memory concede that is relative to the quantity of gatherings. So particularly when the gathering set has high thickness (modest number of gatherings), this calculation requires altogether less memory than when unequivocal arranging is required.

Think about the accompanying two questions (call them Query 1 and Query 2):

SELECT empid, COUNT(*) AS numorders

FROM dbo.Orders

Gathering BY empid

Choice (HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT empid, COUNT(*) AS numorders

FROM dbo.Orders

Gathering BY empid

Alternative (ORDER GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

Figure 3 looks at the memory gifts for these questions.

Figure 3: Plans for Query 1 and Query 2

Notice the huge distinction between the memory gives in the two cases.

Concerning the Hash Aggregate administrator’s cost, returning to Figure 1, see that there’s no I/O cost, rather just a CPU cost. Next, endeavor to figure out the CPU costing recipe utilizing comparable systems to the ones I shrouded in the past parts in the arrangement. The components that can conceivably influence the administrator’s cost are the quantity of info lines, number of yield gatherings, the total capacity utilized, and what you aggregate via (cardinality of collection set, information composes utilized).

You’d anticipate that this administrator will have a startup cost in anticipation of building the hash table. You’d likewise anticipate that it will scale straightly as for the quantity of columns and gatherings. That is in fact what I found. In any case, though the expenses of both the Stream Aggregate and Sort administrators isn’t influenced by what you assemble by, it appears that the cost of the Hash Aggregate administrator is—both as far as the cardinality of the gathering set and the information composes utilized.

To see that the cardinality of the gathering set influences the administrator’s cost, check the CPU expenses of the Hash Aggregate administrators in the plans for the accompanying inquiries (call them Query 3 and Query 4):

SELECT orderid % 1000 AS grp, MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (20000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 1000

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT orderid % 50 AS grp1, orderid % 20 AS grp2, MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (20000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 50, orderid % 20

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

Obviously, you need to ensure that the evaluated number of info columns and yield bunches is the same in the two cases. The evaluated plans for these inquiries are appeared in Figure 4.

Figure 4: Plans for Query 3 and Query 4

As should be obvious, the CPU cost of the Hash Aggregate administrator is 0.16903 when gathering by one whole number section, and 0.174016 when gathering by two number segments, with all else being equivalent. This implies the gathering set cardinality without a doubt influences the cost.

With respect to whether the information kind of the assembled component influences the cost, I utilized the accompanying questions to check this (call them Query 5, Query 6 and Query 7):

SELECT CAST(orderid AS SMALLINT) % CAST(1000 AS SMALLINT) AS grp,

MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (20000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY CAST(orderid AS SMALLINT) % CAST(1000 AS SMALLINT)

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT orderid % 1000 AS grp, MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (20000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 1000

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT CAST(orderid AS BIGINT) % CAST(1000 AS BIGINT) AS grp,

MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (20000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY CAST(orderid AS BIGINT) % CAST(1000 AS BIGINT)

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

The gets ready for every one of the three inquiries have the same evaluated number of info columns and yield gatherings, yet they do all get distinctive assessed CPU costs (0.121766, 0.16903 and 0.171716), consequently the information compose utilized affects cost.

The sort of total capacity additionally appears to affect the cost. For instance, think about the accompanying two inquiries (call them Query 8 and Query 9):

SELECT orderid % 1000 AS grp, COUNT(*) AS numorders

FROM (SELECT TOP (20000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 1000

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT orderid % 1000 AS grp, MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (20000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 1000

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

The assessed CPU cost for the Hash Aggregate in the arrangement for Query 8 is 0.166344, and in Query 9 is 0.16903.

It could be a fascinating activity to attempt and make sense of precisely how the cardinality of the gathering set, the information composes, and total capacity utilized influence the cost; I simply didn’t seek after this part of the costing. Along these lines, in the wake of settling on a decision of the gathering set and total capacity for your question, you can figure out the costing recipe. For instance, we should figure out the CPU costing recipe for the Hash Aggregate administrator when gathering by a solitary whole number section and restoring the MAX(orderdate) total. The recipe ought to be:

Administrator CPU cost = <startup cost> + @numrows * <cost per row> + @numgroups * <cost per group>

Utilizing the procedures that I exhibited in the past articles in the arrangement, I got the accompanying figured out equation:

Administrator CPU cost = 0.017749 + @numrows * 0.00000667857 + @numgroups * 0.0000177087

You can check the exactness of the equation utilizing the accompanying questions:

SELECT orderid % 1000 AS grp, MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (100000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 1000

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT orderid % 2000 AS grp, MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (100000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 2000

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT orderid % 3000 AS grp, MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (200000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 3000

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT orderid % 6000 AS grp, MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (200000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 6000

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT orderid % 5000 AS grp, MAX(orderdate) AS maxod

FROM (SELECT TOP (500000) * FROM dbo.Orders) AS D

Gathering BY orderid % 5000

OPTION(HASH GROUP, MAXDOP 1);

SELECT orderid % 10000 AS grp, MAX(orderdate) AS
