TEMP_TAB_INDEXED_ALWAYS This option is used for SybaseASE to SybaseASE, when the detection for Cartesian Product works. If this option is specified as “Yes”, all the joins with temporary tables will be treated as indexed. So no Cartesian will be detected in this case. Otherwise the Cartesian will be detected if there is no information about the indexes created upon the temporary tables used in DML statement.

PREFETCH_SIZE Specifies the number of rows per batch of data copied. By default, bcp copies n rows in one batch, where n is equal to the batch size. Batch size applies only when you are bulk copying in; it has no effect on bulk copying out. The smallest number bcp accepts for batchsize is 1. The largest number bcp accepts for batchsize is 2147483647L.
