SQL statistics for Performance Insights

SQL statistics are performance-related metrics about SQL queries that are collected by Performance Insights. Performance Insights gathers statistics for each second that a query is running and for each SQL call. The SQL statistics are an average for the selected time range.

A SQL digest is a composite of all queries having a given pattern but not necessarily having the same literal values. The digest replaces literal values with a question mark. For example, SELECT * FROM emp WHERE lname= ?. This digest might consist of the following child queries:

SELECT * FROM emp WHERE lname = 'Sanchez' SELECT * FROM emp WHERE lname = 'Olagappan' SELECT * FROM emp WHERE lname = 'Wu'

All engines support SQL statistics for digest queries.
