Does anyone know what the query below means? I'm running into this type of query pretty frequently an I'm not sure how to find out the problem, if there's any.


SELECT StatMan([SC0])
FROM
(
SELECT TOP 100 PERCENT [AT_field_3] AS [SC0]
FROM [dbo].[tablename]
WITH
(
READUNCOMMITTED
)
ORDER BY [SC0]
) AS _MS_UPDSTATS_TBL

Thanks.

It's a statistics update, probably auto-stats.

I have a job running statistics, that's generating it?

use [DatabaseName]
GO
UPDATE STATISTICS [dbo].[tablename]
WITH FULLSCAN
GO

Do you know why is selecting some tables and not others?

The cause for it to not select some tables is likely due to how your code is written.

Please provide the entire code that is generating your update stats so we can help you identify what is happening.

Either that or the automatic stats updates, or both.

This is all that the sql monitor tool throws out to the log:

SELECT StatMan([SC0])
FROM
(
SELECT TOP 100 PERCENT [AT_field_3] AS [SC0]
FROM [dbo].[tablename]
WITH
(
READUNCOMMITTED
)
ORDER BY [SC0]
) AS _MS_UPDSTATS_TBL

It seems to dump this log when I ran the maintance plan to update the stats. My maintenace plans has this:

use [DatabaseName]
GO
UPDATE STATISTICS [dbo].[tablename]
WITH FULLSCAN
GO

The Statman query is what's run internally for statistics updates.

What exactly is the problem here?

I'm not sure if there's a problem, I have not seen this query before and I was inquiring information about it. I see now that updating statistics generates these queries. It seems that this is normal operation on part of sql server.
