  • Geek City: The Naming of Things

    &nbsp; As a teacher, and also a student of languages, one issue thats always fascinating to me is how people choose to shorten a compound, or multi-part, name.&nbsp; This is very problematic when the word is from another language.&nbsp; For example, we use the word latte in English as a short form of caffè latte, but we shorten it to just the ...

  • re: Geek City: SQL Server 2016 CTP3 In-Memory OLTP Internals Whitepaper

    Hi Dr. Nick There will not be any more of the big SQL Server Internals books. The last one took over a year to write, and the publisher didn't get it published for over a year after that. And with a new version coming out every couple of years, I can't update the book fast enough to keep up with that. So I will be doing more smaller internals ...

    Thanks Chris! The 'could' should have been 'count' and it has already been corrected as I update the paper for RTM. Although it is now on page 84, not 73. :-) The whole sentence is: &nbsp;&quot;The bucket count should be at least equal to the number of distinct values for the index key columns.&quot; ~Kalen

  • re: Geek City: SQL Server 2016 CTP3 In-Memory OLTP Internals Whitepaper

    Hi Chris What if I just answered 'no'? :-) I don't run the performance tests, Microsoft does, in their labs with many different customers. I am not involved with the testing so I just take the results they give me. Anything I can test for myself, as far as functionality, I will always verify before publishing, but for things that need a lab, or ...

  • re: Query Optimizer Deep Dive – Part 2

    Hi Paul You mention a test rig to show rules used by each query, and I can't see to find it in your scripts. Have I just not looked in the right file yet? Also, phases.sql references a BigTransactionHistory table. Is there a script to build that that I have overlooked? Thanks and Happy New Year! Kalen

  • re: Did You Know: My First New Venture

    I was thinking of some place in the South, and I almost did say Atlanta, but then I realized we'd hadn't been to Disney in way too many years! I do want to get back to Atlanta though, as I have a good friend there I haven't seen in too many years. It's definitely on the list!

  • Did You Know: My First New Venture

    As I mentioned in my previous post, I am heading in new directions, and the first goal has now been reached. Rather than working with training companies to offer my SQL Server Internals training, I am now partnering with Denny Cherry and Associates to offer a special opportunity to those wanting to experience a multi-day training event with ...

  • Did You Know: The Times They are A-Changin’

    &nbsp; You know, when Microsoft announces deprecation of a feature, there is no guarantee that the feature will be gone any time soon. All that an official notice of deprecation means is that This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. But it could be a far future version. SQL Trace, for example, was announced ...
