  • System Center Advisor Collection Details

      The System Center Advisor team (formally Project Atlanta) now lists some pre-release documentation on exactly what information they collect and how you can view it before it gets uploaded.

  • White Paper on Parallel Processing

      I just ran across what I think is a newly published white paper on parallel  processing in SQL Server 2008 R2. The date is October 2010 but this is the first time I have seen it so I am not 100% sure how new it really is. Maybe you have seen it already but if not I recommend taking a look. So far I haven’t had time to read it ...

  • Trace Flag Groupings

    I just saw a news group post by Paul Randal in which he explained how trace flags were grouped into certain categories and thought others may find this interesting as well. Please note that Paul stated that these are from memory so they may not be 100% accurate or complete.   Trace flags are grouped by area of SQL Server - the first two ...

  • Checkpoint – Four pillars down, Three to Go

    With the previous post on the fourth pillar, I have reached the “end” of the design posts.  To review, these were: Coherent – cohesive, comprehendible, standards based, names/datatypes all make sense, needs little documentation Normal – normalized as much as possible without harming usability/performance (based on testing) ...
