  • SQL Rally Presentations

    As I drove to Dallas for this year's SQL Rally conference (yes, I like to drive) I got a call asking if I could step in for another presenter who had to cancel at the last minute.  Life happens, and it's best to be flexible, and I said sure, I can do that. Which presentation would you like me to do? (I'd submitted a few presentations, so it ...

  • Script and Migrate Agent Jobs between Servers using PowerShell

    I'm nearing the end of a SQL Server upgrade project, migrating from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2008 R2. The company uses SQL Server Agent to run about 150 jobs which execute DTS packages to do the work of moving data around. Now, there are any number of ways to move these jobs from one server to the other, but I wanted to be able to exclude ...

  • Load Perfmon Log Data into SQL Server with PowerShell

    In yesterday's post I showed you how I set up performance data gathering in an environment where I can't directly update my analysis database. Today I'll show you how I load that data into SQL Server for the analysis. First, I create tables to contain the performance counters in my analysis database. Here's what they look like: CREATE TABLE ...

  • Setup Perfmon with PowerShell and Logman

    In a session yesterday I was reminded of the power of a tool on every server, Logman, to manage performance data gathering. It's a pretty amazing tool, and I'm starting to get to know how much more it can do than I've even considered, but here's a simple example of what I've done so far. First things first, I'm going to leverage the SMO Server ...

As I worked through getting a solution in place for a client I found that the duration calculation was only part of the problem. First, when EnumHistory() is invoked, it runs the sp_help_jobhistory stored procedure. You can ...

    I'll be presenting at the South East Michigan SQL Server User Group (SEMSSUG) tonight. The session will be Gather SQL Server Performance Data with PowerShell. We all know how important it is to keep a baseline of performance metrics that allow us to know when something is wrong and help us to track it down and fix the problem. We don't always ...
