I have a db2 table which index is order by time-add field ascending.
The table is queried million times a day using a SQL query having order by time-add descending.The SQL is heavy cpu consuming. Will making index on table as descending to match with sql can save cpu time? We can not change sql query as it is business requirement to have order by descending

Although there is not enough information to give a definite answer, I tend to think that no, it will not change much.

Getting answers to the following questions will give you (and your DBA) a few hints about what can be done:
  • How often do you REORG this table ?
  • How often do you RUNSTATS for this table ?
  • Is the index clustered ?
  • How many rows in the table ?
  • How many rows are fetched by the query ?
  • Is the column TIME-ADD defined as a TIMESTAMP ?
  • Do you have other columns in the WHERE clause ?
  • Did you try to EXPLAIN the query ?

You must ask this question to site DBA and get their recommendations as they are ONLY the right people who can give you a real support .
