While you practice physical distancing (words I never thought I’d daisy-chain together), I’m giving away free SQL Server training. So far, we’ve covered building a query plan and how to find the right queries to tune.

For many people, index tuning means occasionally adding an index when there’s a report about a slow query. Those indexes might come from a query plan, or from the missing index DMVs, where SQL Server stores every complaint the optimizer files when it thinks an index might make a query better.

A task that I've done many times in my career in databases is to load data into a database as a first step in some benchmark. To do it efficiently you want to use multiple threads.

.NET is great and provides a ton of tools for working with databases and data sources. There are times though that a data source may not be inherently supported. In a case such as MySQL you may not see the MySQL connection options when creating binding sources or data sources for your project.

You will be hearing a lot from me and others about the product end of life (EOL) of MySQL version 5.6 which will be February 2021. While MySQL 8.0 is a vast leap forward over previous versions and MySQL 5.7 is fantastic, there are a lot of software still running and still dependent on MySQL 5.6.

In this article, we perform a couple of experiments on different instances in the cloud to show how to properly set up up multiple "Analytics Disk Paths." Typical ad-hoc analytical queries have to process much more data than can fit in memory. Consequently, those queries tend to be I/O bound.
