BIDS Query Designer very slow in VS 2008

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I am in the process of upgrading my Report Server projects from 2005 to 2008.  These reports use an Analysis Services 2005 data source and have queries that are anywhere from 20 to 100 lines of MDX.  After upgrading a report, when I open or save a dataset in the Query Designer, it takes up to 20 seconds.  In 2005, this would happen almost instantly. Running SQL Server Profiler, I see that there is an extensive number (600+) of Discover events going on with the Analysis Services server while the Query Designer loads. My version of Visual Studio is 9.0.30729.1 SP and I am running Windows XP SP2. Thanks, Mitch

BIDS Query Designer very slow

BIDS Query Designer seems to be very slow while saving the query or opening the query designer when you've got quite a lot of Query Parameters. When I remove all the query parameters, the query designer seems to be running smoothly. Editing a query with about 10 to 15 query parameters takes ages this way! Is there something I can do about this?!

SSRS Query Designer (in BIDS) does not generate ANSI SQL

Hello, I have a problem when using SQL Server 2005 BIDS (Business Intelligence Development Studio) when connected to an Oracle data source.  The Query Designer generates the old Oracle SQL syntax instead of ANSI SQL.  This is with the Oracle 10g client installed. So, I would really appreciate it if anybody knows how to get the Query Designer to generate the ANSI SQL.   Thanks, Stuart

2005 query runs slow in 2008



I'm running some of our stored  procedures, written on 2005, on a test 2008 server

One of the stored procedures runs much slower on 2008, the execution plan is considerably different as well.

I've tried changing the compatability level, to no effect.

I'm wondering f there are any general actions I can take to mitigate this issue, or whether I'm just going to have to deal with these problems on a one by one basis.





BIDS SQL 2008 sp2 "The query processor could not start the necessary thread resources for parallel q


These cubes have been working in SQL 2005 on another box.  I copied the SQL db and the SSAS Project over to this new box and a fresh install of SQL 2008, sp2 Std Ed, 32 bits. Box has Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Ed SP2,

• 2x 2.3GHZ
• 12GB RAM
• D: 120GB SSD Drive Partition For Data
• C: 73 GB Drive Partition for System
• 1 GB NIC

A few of the dimensions will not refresh, they give the message  
"The query processor could not start the necessary thread resources for parallel query execution.; 42000"
The dimension I have been testing has 34 attributes, all directly related to the key attribute, and no hierarchies. There are 246,000 unique members in the source table. If I make another dimension from the same source table, it refreshes fine as long as there are only a few attributes, but when I add the rest, I get this message again.

Drive C, where Visual Studio is installed, has 69 Gb free disk space. The SQL and SSAS data are on D also has 69 Gb free.

Why was SQL 2005 able to handle this, but SQL 2008 cannot? I am thinking of uninstalling 2008 and going back to SQL 2005. Other suggestions?





Slow page load during a list query one time during the day


We have a monitoring tool set to check to see if the home pages for our 3 web apps load in under 60 seconds every 10 minutes.  All 3 web apps load in under 3 seconds on every 10 minute check except for one exception.  One check every day one of the web app's home page takes longer than 60 seconds to load.  This happens at 11:45PM when there is very little user usage on the environment.  The characteristics of this page are as follows: The only thing on the page is a list view web part which was added by the browser.  The page has not been customized with SPD or code at all.  The list that it pulls is a simple links list that has 281 items on it.  The view pulls all 281 items and displays them in sets of 100.  I cannot find any associated event in the server events and/or SharePoint ULS logs nor are there any daily sharepoint timer jobs running at that time.  Our full index happens at midnight with incremental happening hourly.  Our enviroment is 2 WFEs, 1 App/indexer and we have a separate SQL cluster backend.  

Could someone lead me possibly in the direction I should take next in my troubleshooting?   

WPF Designer (in VS 2008 and VS 2010) crashes with Visual Studio

Good day all. I have the following question: WPF designer in both VS 2008 and VS 2010 crashes with Visual Studio when I try to edit UI form. Moreover, it crashes even when I try to save .xaml.cs file. Meanwhile, Winforms and Dataset UI editors work as usual. Are there other people met this issue? And how could I fix up this problem? Deleting the .suo file, uninstalling silverlight, repairing visual studio, and further googling did not help me. Thanks in advance.

FAST search query is slow...

Hi, we are using fast search for sharepoint 2010. We are crawling an external data source and this is used for search queries. we have around 30 metadata properties and all are full-text indexed. however, the search operation is slow for a database of 5k records in intranet (webserver and database server are in different geographic regions). typically a 100 item search takes 9-10 sec. it get worse over internet and the search query varies from 10-45 sec for 100 items. Any pointers will be helpful. thanks.  

SQL Server 2008 R2 BIDS PageHeader's PrintOnFirstPage=False Not Behaving Like SQL Server 2008 BIDS

I have recently upgraded from SQL Server 2008 SP2 Enterprise edition to 2008 R2 Enterprise, and was in the process of validating that the process did not have any adverse affects on my existing 150 reports originally designed and managed via BIDS 2008. Several reports were designed where the first page has a header different from the rest of the pages.  I created the generic header in the PageHeader and set PrintOnFirstPage to False.  This worked great in 2008...but in 2008 R2 the real estate on the first page is not "freed," so the first page looks like it has an enormous top margin when rendered as a PDF. Even playing around with the visibility of the text box doesn't eliminate the whitespace - and setting visibility properties was not required to get it to work in SQL Server, which rendered as a PDF perfectly just yesterday before our upgrade! I noticed that there were three patches available, but I did not see a Fix available that addressed this issue, therefore I did not install them as advised on the site. Is there any way to do free up the real estate so my first page can use it (maybe a setting in 2008 R2 that wasn't there for 2008)? Or is this a known bug between the two and a patch/hotfix is in the works? I'd hate to have reports that were specifically designed with certain paging to have to be revisited one by one. Thank you fo

Slow query execution

Hello, I have a strange problem that suddenly happened. I have a Windows 7 Ultimate OS running SSMS 2008. When I run a query or an stored proc against a server (the server is remote and passes through a VPN tunnel) it can take me 40 seconds to get the query to complete. But when I run a similar query against another server located at the same location (go through the same tunnel) I get the results in 1 second.  I select about 400 rows on both servers. The slow response comes from a server that runs sql 2005 and the fast response is sql 2008. I asked a friend that works in the same office with me and uses the same connection as I do to run the same queries and he gets the result in 1 second. Does anyone has any ideas what can cause such problems?  I tried to remove and reinstall all the sql server components from my computer but nothing helped? Thanks, Oded Tal

Oracle Linked serve Query performance in 2000 vs 2008 R2 64 Bit

Hi everyone We have started to migrate one of our reporting systems from Sql 2000 to Sql 2008 R2.  One of the steps has been to test the perforance of certain Oracle linked server queries between each server.  We are finding on average 3 fold better perforance stats (in terms of query completion time) on the old server.  This should obviously not be the case.  The new server has signifantly more CPU/Memory/IO resources to play with, and it is 64 bit (not to mention its new!).  Here's what I got so far: Old server: SQL 2000 on W2000 both fully patched.  Old Dell Dual core with 3 GB of Ram running on two soft IDE Mirrored drives (yes I know... it sucks).  It connecting via the MS OLE DB provider for Oracle (9i client) New server: ESX VMware Server with 2 CPU's assigned, 8 GB of ram connected to large HP SAN.  CPU, ram and IO's have all been ruled out as the problem.  We've tried varying network cards with different results so we havent ruled that out yet.  Its connecting via the Oracle provider for OLE DB (11G 64 bit client) The linked server is an Oracle 9i fully patched server.  All three are on the same network backbone. Running a simple select * query on both servers returns the same number of rows (~76 000) .  It takes ~1:20 on the new server and ~0:20 on the old server. In looking at the wait stati

Query on XML datatype in SQL Server 2008

Hi All, In table I have column with XML datatype. I can able to read the below XML tag. SET   @Title = CAST(@XMLContent.query('data(root/chemicalName)') AS VARCHAR(50)) <root><chemicalName>Sulphuric acid</chemicalName></root> but how can I read (in SQL Server 2008) with multiple rows in it, and how to know the list of child nodes and data of it dynamically? <Root> <Row> < CurrencyCode>GBP</CurrencyCode> < CurrencyName>POUND (STERLING)</CurrencyName> </ Row> <Row> < CurrencyCode>INR</CurrencyCode> < CurrencyName>Rupee</CurrencyName> </ Row></

SSRS 2008 R2 - Query builder freezes and needs to be shut down Report Builder 3 when attempting quie

Hi, In SSRS, using Report Builder 3.0 (SSRS R2), after choosing a Report Model as the report's embedded data source, launched "Query Deisinger…" from GUI to build data source in report.  First 1-2 attempts at querying underlying data source (Oracle back-end), are successful, but later attempts freeze application to the point where application freezes and overall Report Builder application needs to be forcibly shut-down. This system freeze has occurred when referencing tables containing a very small number of records as well as larger data sets.  Suspect that application freezing may be caused by timing-out of connection to back-end database. but I am not sure. Any suggestion to solve this issue? Thanks   Environment - Distributed deployment Server1(report_srv) --Windows server 2003R2 64bit, Installed sql server 2008R2 reporting service, configuration tools Server2 (report_db_srv) --windows server 2003r2 64bit, sql server 2005 for report server database

Visual Studio 2008 Failing to Add New Controls into *.designer.cs

I've encountered a situation with my current project where, when I add a new control, VS2008 is not adding it into the associated Designer file.  This is occurring with both a Web Page (ASPX) and a User Control (ASCX).At first I thought it was because I was going into the layout page and manually adding a control that way.  But then when I went back to dragging the controls right from the ToolBox the problem persisted.Why is this happening and how can I fix it?Robert

SQL server management studio 2008 freezes when running a query to Grid result

Hello, I've got problems when I run a Query to a grid result using SQL server management studio 2008 under W7 pro. When I execute the query, the first part of the grid returns, but then it freezes. The query should present a double resultset and contains approx 6100 records, devided over 2 grids. Strange enough, the query runs fine when I export to TXT or to a file. It seems though that the problem is building the grid. When it occurs I cannot end the application bij shutting down de SSMS window, but have to kill the Ssms.exe. In task manager I see only 25% CPU usage and approx 20% memory usage. Nothing exiting there I guess. Suggestions anybody?
