For jobs sourced from relational datasets, you can optionally enable SQL-based optimizations, which apply some of the steps specified in your recipe back in the datasource, where they can be executed before the data is transferred to the running environment for execution. Using these optimizations means faster performance based on a lower volume of data transfer.
- Project owners must enable the optimization feature for the project. For more information, see Dataprep Project Settings Page.
- When the feature is enabled, optimizations must be enabled for each flow. You can also select the optimizations to apply. For more information, see Flow Optimization Settings Dialog.
When optimizations have been applied to your flow, they are listed on the Overview tab:
- Optimization: This setting is displayed if flow optimizations have been enabled for this flow.
- Columns pruned: If one or more unused columns have been pruned in the datasource via SQL, the count of columns is listed here.
- Filters pushed down: If one or more row filters has been applied in the datasource via SQL, the count of filters is listed here.
If an optimization is disabled or was not applied to the job run, it is not listed.
