Low SQL cost and high execution time

Hi!

I have a problem. :)
I have a big SQL statement with about 20 LEFT JOINS. When I run explain on
it it gives me a total cost of about 500, but when I run the query it runs
for about two minutes.
I have updated statistics, but the values did not change.

Any suggestions?

Best regards,
Kovi

Run db2advis against the query.

It may give you more information on what you need to do to speed it up

We are building a high performance system and suddenly the cost of using exception has been magnified. What is the actual cost of having a frequent call inside a try-catch block when the vast majority of times there will be no exception to catch? Many thanks.
