Parallelization allows database management systems to take full advantage of the widespread use of multi-processor computers [1]. Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise 11.5 parallelizes a number of DBMS operations for the SMP environment. The parallel intra-query processing facility enables the server to process a query in parallel, and thereby reduce the response time considerably. The database consistency checker utility takes full advantage of IO parallelism to check the consistency of a database in a fraction of the time. Database recovery also exploits IO parallelism to achieve up to 500% performance improvement. The asynchronous pre-fetch technique is used widely throughput the database for query processing and recovery as well as utilities.
