I've been pointed to this script from several places which apparently helps with designing indexes in Microsoft SQL Server: http://indexanalysis.codeplex.com/

The problem is I'm using Sybase ASA 11, which seems to use a slightly different implementation of T-SQL than the one used by MS. I'm getting all sorts of errors when I try to run the script.

I know enough about database tuning to tell where to put indexes, and that's about it. I'm a programmer, so I don't know about it as much as I'd like to.

My question is: Is there anything similar to this tool for Sybase? I need to know where to put indexes without going to each and every query (if I can avoid it).

  • Hi Dan, welcome to Database Administrators. Are you asking if there is an equivalent index analysis tool for sybase? Commented Nov 10, 2011 at 20:45

    @Dan The tool/script you've linked too is possibly too deep a level of analysis for what you're looking for. More suitable would be the Sybase equivalent of SQL Servers Database Tuning Advisor, if such a tool exists. Might be worth editing your question to reflect this if it's the case.

Sybase 3rd party tools are sparse unless you spend money it seems.

The usual vendor suspects have Sybase offerings:
