I have a query app scanning a whole table with a text field.
The query is doing this many reads:
Scan count 1, logical reads 170586, physical reads 3, read-ahead reads 174716, lob logical reads 7902578, lob physical reads 8743, lob read-ahead reads 0.
If I remove the text field from the select, reads become the following:
Scan count 1, logical reads 170588, physical reads 0, read-ahead reads 0, lob logical reads 0, lob physical reads 0, lob read-ahead reads 0.
The thing that I don't get is how lob reads works:
if I sum up the logical reads with lob logical reads I get a total of 8.073.164 logical reads, which, if I'm correct, is about 64GB.
But the entire database is only 7GB!
I'm probably missing something about adding up logical reads and lob logical reads.
What does the number of lob logical reads actually represent?
