  • Useful, free resources for SQL Server

    Recently Dave Ballantyne posted a list of free resources for SQL Server, entitled ''The best things in life are free.''  Now, I'm not trying to upstage Dave, but I know of several resources that aren't on his list.  It would be good to have a true community page for this kind of thing, but for now a blog post will have to do.  [I ...

  • New util proc: sp_tableinfo

    Some of you might use my sp_indexinfo to easily get lots of details about the indexes in a database. I added an sp_tableinfo with info rolled up to table level. This allow to quickly see the largest tables in a database and things like that. Check it out at http://www.karaszi.com/SQLServer/util_sp_tableinfo.asp.

  • New Interview and SQLMag ToolTime Blog Article on "SQLClue"

    A neat new administration and configuration management tool for the SQL Server set.  I especially like the Run Book features, because Run Books are the way us ''oldtimers'' like to run our IT infrastructure.  My pal, Buck Woody, also likes Run Books (and really big explosions by the guys on MythBusters, but that's another ...

  • Util procedure to show database size

    One of the first things I want to do when I look at a new SQL Server is to get an idea of space usage details for each database, including total space usage. For this I have been using my own sp_db_space_usage for a while now, so I decided to add it to my website (www.karaszi.com). Check it out here.

  • Like PowerShell for SQL Server?

    Check out my new Tool Time column in this month's SQL Server Magazine. It features some great new PowerShell scripts and information from Chad Miller (blog) who I had the pleasure to meet in person back in October of this year while speaking at the SQL Server of central Florida and at SQL Saturday #21. In addition, I'd like to point out a free ...
