  • New White Paper: SQL Server Extended Events and Notifications

    SQL Server comes with a wide array of tools for monitoring your environment. There are logs and traces that provide information when errors occur, but these are often used passively to react to events that have already occurred.  There's PerfMon, and Profiler, and loads of Dynamic Management Views to check.  But where to look? As ...

  • Running SSIS packages from C#

    Most of the developers and DBAs know about two ways of deploying packages: You can deploy them to database server and run them using SQL Server Agent job or you can deploy the packages to file system and run them using dtexec.exe utility. Both approaches have their pros and cons. However I would like to show you that there is a third way (sort of) ...

  • Server level permissions for developers–why you should read books

    It is quite difficult recently for me to find some time to write a new post, so I don’t seem to be leading the rankings of the most frequent bloggers. I rarely recently have opportunity to lay my hands on the code too, so natural sources of ‘inspiration’ are less often. Hopefully this will change in 2012 and I will have more opportunities to write ...

  • OUTPUT clause and windowing functions

    A few days ago I was asked a question how to remove duplicates from a table. As usually in such cases, the duplicate values were related only to several columns, not all of them. So classical approach, to copy distinct data into temp table, truncate the table with duplicates and then copy the data back wouldn’t work. In such cases I find one of ...

  • Security – how to assign rights to database objects

    A few days ago my team mate asked me to check out why one of the logins doesn’t have right to execute to a few stored procedures. Allegedly it had the right before. After a few minutes of digging in the source control it turned out that these procedures were scripted with explicit EXECUTE rights to them. However, some later updates to the code did ...

  • BNF – how to read syntax?

    A few days ago I read post of Jen McCown (blog) about her idea of blogging about random articles from Books Online. I think this is a great idea, even if Jen says that it’s not exciting or sexy. I noticed that many of the questions that appear on forums and other media arise from pure fact that people asking questions didn’t bother to read and ...

  • Setting reporting database–what happens behind the scenes

    When you install reporting server, you have in general two options available – either you install the reporting server and configure its database at the same time, or install just reporting service and point it to an existing database later. We had recently opportunity to configure server to point to existing reporting database. We encountered a ...
