Viewing query plan

Using SQL Manager for SQL Server, you can view the plan for each of the queries created and executed in the application. The query plan is available within the corresponding Plan tab.


To view the Plan of a query, open Design Query and use the btnExplainQuery Show estimated execution plan item of the Navigation bar or toolbar.


The Plan tab allows you to view the sequence of actions performed by the database server in the process of the query execution, and the amount of system resources used for the query execution.
