In the different projects where I perform a performance audit or am involved in performance tuning, I often find that while queries and stored procedures function correctly, they are not efficient in processing larger data sets.

Most DBAs work with different environments such as production, quality assurance and development where the same database schema exists. One of the biggest issues we have been facing while maintaining the same database schema in various environments is making sure that the objects exist in the databases are the same in all environments and if not, finding the differences and applying them to the relevant environments. How you have been doing this? Did you do it manually (imagine doing it manually...

I catch this problem pretty quick when I am working on it during the data and can fix it, but during nightly processing existing spids become problematic. I have also noticed existing spids causing problems for my SQL Server 2000 Database Maintenance Plans....

During my years as a Developer/DBA hearing the words "customizable" or "extensible" always brought a slight smile to my face, particularly when they were used in conjunction with a software sales pitch or evaluation. In fact, more often than not, while presented as product features, these words often really mean, "you can do some additional things with this software if you are willing to invest significant time and resources into doing so". Even today, some of the most popular open source and co...

High Call Volume SQL Server Applications on NUMA Systems

Read Reviews | Write Review |  Your Rating: 

One of the most difficult database operations to scale-up on high-end server systems is the network call. In fact, without special precautions, a high call volume database application can have severe negative scaling on large systems. It is suspected that this problem is more pronounced on NUMA systems than basic SMP systems. A NUMA system with 16 processors can have significantly lower throughput capability than an otherwise comparable 4-way SMP system. Many SQL Server performance experts have ...

As queries become more complex, temporary tables are used more and more. While temporary table may sometimes be unavoidable, they can often be sidestepped by using derived tables instead. In brief, a derived table is the result of using another SELECT statement in the FROM clause of a SELECT statement. By using derived tables instead of temporary tables, we can boost our application's performance....
