It’s T-SQL Tuesday, but this isn’t actually my post!
Regular readers might remember that I posted about “Number of Rows Read” a while back, and in that post, I mentioned that SQL Sentry should consider having a warning in Plan Explorer. Well, they put that feature in, and asked me if I could write about it. So I did.
But this wasn’t a standard “Can you write about our product, so we can post it on our main product page”, this was an offer to write for sqlperformance.com – alongside a select few others such as SQLskills people like Paul, Jonathan, Erin, Glenn, Tim, and (back when he was with them) Joe, SQL Sentry people like Aaron and Kevin, Jason, Rick, and the legendary Paul White.
Now, I consider writing for sqlblog.com a huge honour (and I’m still hugely grateful to Adam Machanic (@adammachanic) – for his invite to write here, and the hosting that he does), and being invited to write for sqlperformance.com is a huge honour as well (just like it’s an honour to be asked to write for books, or to work for particular clients). So I’m going to write for both. I’ve just had three posts get published on sqlperformance.com, but I plan to be keeping the numbers fairly even between the two. sqlblog.com will remain my main blogging site, and the one that I refer people to. And I still want to make sure I publish something here each month.
The content on both sites is excellent, from all the authors. Part of what attracted me to sqlblog.com was the high standard of content here, and the number of bloggers that I admire here, and the list of authors at sqlperformance.com is very strong too. Both Aaron and Paul (White) often write about T-SQL performance, which is close to my heart as well, so I think my content fits in quite nicely there.
Those three posts I’ve written are:
Number of Rows Read / Actual Rows Read warnings in Plan Explorer
What's "Actually" going on with that Seek?
