Case: Rewriting SQL and Deleting Subqueries (Case 2)

Symptom

On a site, the customer gave the feedback saying that the execution time of the following SQL statements lasted over one day and did not end:

UPDATE calc_empfyc_c_cusr1 t1
SET ln_rec_count =
 (
    SELECT CASE WHEN current_date - ln_process_date + 1 <= 12 THEN 0 ELSE t2.ln_rec_count END 
    FROM calc_empfyc_c1_policysend_tmp t2
    WHERE t1.ln_branch = t2.ln_branch AND t1.ls_policyno_cusr1 = t2.ls_policyno_cusr1
)
WHERE dsign = '1'
AND flag = '1'
AND EXISTS
    (SELECT 1
    FROM calc_empfyc_c1_policysend_tmp t2
    WHERE t1.ln_branch = t2.ln_branch AND t1.ls_policyno_cusr1 = t2.ls_policyno_cusr1
    );

The corresponding execution plan is as follows:

Optimization

SubPlan exists in the execution plan, and the calculation accounts for a large proportion in the SubPlan query. That is, SubPlan is a performance bottleneck.

Based on the SQL syntax, you can rewrite the SQL statements and delete SubPlan as follows:

UPDATE calc_empfyc_c_cusr1 t1
SET ln_rec_count = CASE WHEN current_date - ln_process_date + 1 <= 12 THEN 0 ELSE t2.ln_rec_count END
FROM calc_empfyc_c1_policysend_tmp t2
WHERE 
t1.dsign = '1' AND t1.flag = '1' 
AND t1.ln_branch = t2.ln_branch AND t1.ls_policyno_cusr1 = t2.ls_policyno_cusr1;

The modified SQL statement task is complete within 50s.
