Delete selectivity <percentage>%: <number_of> deletes, <number_of> rows read, <number_of> rows qualified

Update selectivity <percentage>%: <number_of> updates, <number_of> rows read, <number_of> rows qualified


The ratio of read rows to modified rows is poor for UPDATE or DELETE statements.

Before UPDATE and DELETE statements can modify or delete rows, the rows must be located in the table. The same access strategies are used as in a SELECT statement.
