Hi,

When would it be proper to use the Analyze (Data Management) tool over the Analyze Datasets (Data Management) tool and vice versa?  It appears to me that they both update statistics on datasets in an Enterprise Geodatabase.

Thanks!

Jesse

Hi Jesse,

I would say that there is not much different on the outside. They both only work on Enterprise Geodatabases. However, the options on the AnalyzeDatasets is much more robust than the analyze, see below:

Analyze Datasets—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop

AnalyzeDatasets_management (input_database, include_system, {in_datasets}, {analyze_base}, {analyze_delta}, {analyze_archive})

Analyze—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop

Analyze_management (in_dataset, components)

I would use the Analyze Datasets on any data in the Enterprise Geodatabase for more control of what you are doing and more options.

Thanks George, that makes a lot of sense.  I have a few scripts that are using just the "Analyze" tool but I will be switching them over to "AnalyzeDatasets"

Kind regards,

Jesse
