Database performance

December 26th, 2018

Last engineering TAKT, I got a BLI that should support a new version of our product on the Cloud Platform. The feature was part of a backend service, API controller that represents Metering data (usage and billing) to our costumers on their Cockpit view of their account on our system. The API service built on SQL templates which involve logics on many tables using JOINs and conditions. We had a design and review at the beginning of the TAKT and decided, in order to avoid regression, to use a LEFT OUTER JOIN on the the current view using two conditions. LEFT OUTER JOIN SCHEMA.TABLE NAME ON (CONDITION_1 OR CONDITION_2) I was happy to finish the BLI and started the tests on it. The results seemed OK and we had no regressions at this part. But when I started the get deeper into the tests results, I found some regression on the performances. I received the result from the server after around 3secs. The change was from 200ms to 3secs which is a huge change. I started to investigate, being assisted by experts in my team and organization and we found some points: 1. Our new table that we used for the LEFT OUTER JOIN, set as a ROW store table which was not the best for that type of table. We change the table settings to COLUMN store which helps us with indexing. HANA-DB optimizes the indexes depend the store settings. 2. The main issue that caused the regression on the performances was the fact that I used two conditions for the ON of the LEFT OUTER JOIN. The OR condition of the JOIN turned to be a non effective because it creates cartesian product on the database on two big groups of data. Therefore, we decided to split the JOIN with the two conditions to two JOINs, each one with single condition. After that we have to add some logics to the select
