With the WITH OBJECTS option, DBQL logs one row in DBQLObjTbl for each data object referenced by the query. An object can be a database, data table, column, secondary index, join index, or journal table. (If the object is a secondary index, its number is logged rather than a name.) DBQL gets the use counts from the Optimizer and not the SQL statement itself. The system logs a count of the number of times the object was accessed by the Optimizer.

Any DBC database tables and columns used by the system while processing a query are not reflected in the DBQL object rows for that query. This means, for example, that statements like CREATE TABLE or SELECT FROM DBC.xxx will not have objects logged through DBQL because they deal with DBC tables and columns.
