CREATE CLUSTERED COLUMNSTORE INDEX [IndexName] ON [TableName] WITH (DROP_EXISTING = OFF , MAXDOP=1 ) DROP INDEX [IndexName] ON [TableName] WITH ( ONLINE = OFF, MAXDOP = 1) Question 1) Do I get same results in the end, if I use MAXDOP=1 or MAXDOP=8?, or not using the MAXDOP at all? I heard somewhere that using MAXDOP=1 when you creating CCI will get better Clustering. Question 2) Do you want better Clustering to get better query performance? Question 3) Performance Issues with MAXDOP=1. If I use MAXDOP=1 option when you create or drop CCI, it takes long time to process. 6 hours to create CCI with MAXDOP=1, and 2 hours to drop CCI with MAXDOP=1 If I use MAXDOp=8 option when you create or dorp CCI, process is much faster then using MAXDOP=1 1 hour to create CCI with MAXDOP=8, and 25mins to drop CCI with MAXDOP=8 If my SQL server can handle the CCI Create and Drop with MAXDOP=8 or more, should I be using higer MAXDOP? Thanks for your help Reply ↓ Niko Neugebauer Post authorDecember 13, 2015 at 4:17 pm Hi Tom, First of all you will need to use DROP_EXISTING = ON while re-creating a Columnstore Index over the Clustered rowstore one. Do not drop Columnstore Index, it makes no sense. Create a Rowstore index with DROP_EXISTING = ON ordering data on the most frequently used column, and then re-create a Columnstore Index with DROP_EXISTING = ON. 1. You will find the detailed explanations here on the Segment Clustering: http://www.nikoport.com/2014/04/16/clustered-columnstore-indexes-part-29-data-loading-for-better-segment-elimination/ 2. Yes, it will help to get better segment elimination and thus will allow to read & process less data while getting the same results. 3. MAXDOP = 1 is slow. Using MAXDOP = 8 makes your server using 8 cores, so it should be much faster … 🙂 Please read this article http://www.nikoport.com/2014/04/16/clustered-columnstore-indexes-part-29-data-loading-for-better-segment-elimination/ and let me know if something is still not clear.

Any advice to achieve this goal?

Reply ↓ Ramya March 21, 2016 at 8:33 pm Hi Niko, I am facing problem with a simple select query which involves three tables with clustered columnstore index on them. For every 15 mins, there is a ETL load running and one of the three tables gets truncated each time before new rows get inserted. This leaves the rowgroup to be open and query becomes too slow. It will run fine if I run rebuild index and update stats on tables. The problem is we are unable to run rebuild index and update stats for every 15 mins. I wanted to know your thoughts on this and if there is anyway this problem can be avoided. Thanks! Reply ↓ Niko Neugebauer Post authorMarch 22, 2016 at 5:24 pm Hi Ramya, Try manually closing the Delta-Stores with ALTER INDEX … REORGANIZE WITH (COMPRESS_ALL_ROW_GROUPS = ON); You will find details here: http://www.nikoport.com/2014/07/04/clustered-columnstore-indexes-part-33-tuple-mover-that-closes-open-delta-stores/ Best regards, Niko Neugebauer Reply ↓ Dale Wilson May 19, 2016 at 7:55 am Hi Niko, I attended your Columnstore Indexes – from basics to optimised analytics at SQLBits.

I couldn’t submit my comment on that blog post because of some issues, Can you please help me on below questions ? As you mentioned in part-38 “I understand that at the moment when we are reading Columnstore data from the disk, it is being read directly into Columnstore Object Pool without decompression, and then all the respective pages from the Segments are decompressed into Buffer Pool for returning the result.” – 1) Does it mean Buffer Pool Extension can store decompressed Columnstore data in SQL Server 2016 Standard edition ? 2) How to restrict the memory allocation to columnstore objects (Delta-Stores + Deleted Bitmaps + Decompressed columnstore data) in buffer pool ? 3) Columnstore Object Pool can be of 32GB in SQL Server 2016 STD edition, what is going to be impact of it as most of the stuff is stored in buffer pool ? 4) CCI and NCCI rebuild and reorganize operations are performed in buffer pool rather than in Columnstore pool ? Looking forward for your response. Thank you. Reply ↓ Niko Neugebauer Post authorMay 25, 2017 at 9:30 am Hi Anil, answering your questions: 1) yes. But avoid Buffer Pool Extension for Columnstore Indexes right now, since it is focused on the OLTP scenarios. All operations are done on the page (8KB) level. 2) There is no way to control that. 3) It will depend on the actual data. The cap is the maximum value, it does not mean that your workload will strive to achieve that. 4) yes, to my understanding.
