Conor vs. the Search Framework in SQL Server’s Optimizer

Conor vs. the Search Framework in SQL Server’s Optimizer

  • Comments 1

I got a few requests for additional topics where one can read about the SQL Server query optimizer’s search framework (which happens to be called Cascades).  I will warn you that most of these are academic papers.  Some of these use different terminology than the SQL Server Books Online and therefore may or may not make a lot of sense. 

 

This is a paper I co-wrote a few years ago that talks about how SQL Server optimizer deals with distributed queries.  It contains a section that is a general overview of the search framework (at a slightly deeper level of detail than the talk I gave at SQL Bits, for those who attended)

Another paper that some of my colleagues wrote on SQL Update processing in SQL Server:

http://academic.research.microsoft.com/Paper/917786.aspx?viewType=1

(I am unsure if this is publicly available or is behind a paywall)

 

This is another paper talking about the Cascades framework

Happy Querying!
