1.3 Data grouping stages
When dealing with stages like Aggregator, Filter etc, always try to use sorted data for better performance

Figure: Sorting the input data on the grouping keys in an aggregator stage

The example shown in the figure is the properties window for an aggregator stage that finds out the sum of a
quantity column by grouping on the columns shown above. In such scenarios, we will do sorting of the input data
on the same columns so that the records with same/similar values for these grouping columns will come together
there by increasing the performance. Also note that if we are using more than one node, then the input dataset
should be properly partitioned so that the similar records will be available in the same node.

1.4 ODBC Stages
If possible sort the data in ODBC stage itself; this will reduce the over head of DS sorting the data. Dont
use the sort stage when we have ORDER BY clause in ODBC sql

Select only the required records or Remove the unwanted rows as early, so that the job need not deal with
unnecessary records causing performance degrade

Using a constraint to filter a record is much slower as compared to having a SELECT.WHERE in ODBC
stage. User the power of database where ever possible and reduce the over head for DS.

Figure: Using the User-defined SQL option in ODBC stages to reduce the overhead of datastage by specifying the WHERE
and ORDER BY clause in the SQL used to get data.

Avoid using like operator in user

defined queries in ODBC stages. But one thing to be noted here is that , if our custom sql requires a must
scenario like it is doing a filter on some string pattern, we will be forced to use the like pattern to get
the requirement done.

Avoid using

Stored Proceedures until and unless the functionality cannot be implemented in Data Stage jobs.
