By using OSS Select, you can use simple SQL statements to select content from objects in OSS to obtain only required data. OSS Select helps you reduce the amount of data transmitted from OSS to improve the data retrieval efficiency and save time.

Note You can send requests to transmit SQL expressions to OSS. For more information about SQL statements supported by OSS Select and limits, see SelectObject.
