SQL SERVER 2005 Performance

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

We have SQL SERVER 2005 SP3 Enterprise 32-bit running on a windows server 2003 Enterprise 32-bit with 32GB of RAM and 8 dual core processors. Our CPU, RAM, and I/O are always through the roof and the application is always running slow. We use AWE for buffer cache the maximum memory is 28GB, the PAGEIOLATCH_SH is always high and the procedure cache is always around 700mB. Durring production hours we have over 6000 connections to sql server (500 users). What is wrong here? Please help. Thank you.

SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services - Performance of Excel Pivot Tables

  
Hi, I've several cubes available for several users within my organization. I've the SQL Server 2005 and the Analysis Services running on the same machine but it has 30Gb of RAM, 8 processors and a quick enouth disk. The problems is that i've some automatic processes that "build" some excel reports and the users use pivot tables with olap connections to the cubes regularly. I've noticed that the excel "locks" when the user is drilling down the data and the server has only one processor (there are 8...) at 100%... Is there a way to make the analysis services use the maximum processing capacity that is available? The users are complaining about the slowness of the cubes... Thanks in advance Hugo

Performance Counter Transactions/Sec in SQL Server 2005

Which factor impacts the Transactions/Sec in SQLServer 2005. What could be the reason to get less Transactions/Sec.

Slow performance with SQL Server 2005 executing parameterized queries with LIKE and an aggregate com

  

We have a slow-performing query and, after some analysis, have narrowed the cause down to using parametrized queries in conjunction with LIKE and aggregate comparisons used in the WHERE clause.  If we use a non-parametrized query (but keep the WHERE clause the same) the query performs much faster and, in fact, executes a different plan.  Using OPTIMIZE FOR UNKNOWN is not an option for us as we are using SQL Server 2005.  Obviously, we'd like to use parametrized queries to prevent SQL injection but the slow perf is unacceptable.  We need the LIKE to support wildcard scenarios.  If we need to we'll use dynamic SQL (scrubbed as much as we can) in lieu of parametrized queries.  We're wondering, however, is there another option that would give us the perf without sacrificing safety?  I can provide a sample database, query, plans, etc. if necessary...I'm assuming SQL Server generates a less efficient plan with the parametrized query as it can't make any assumptions about the parameter values...

SQL Server 2005 store procedure performance issue

  

We are calling store procedure from vb.net client following are the observation.

1) sqlserver 2005  takes huge amount of time (more than 1 hour) to execute procedure. The procedure has select statement using join statement. (Generally this procedure executes and populate data in 5 seconds when it is called from .net client.)

2) If same procedure is executed from sql server management studio, procedure executes and populate data in 5 seconds (works as per expectation)

3) If we recompile procedure (i.e. open procedure in alter mode in management studio and click on execute button) ,  the procedure executes and populate data as per expectation.

4) This is intermittent issue on production machine. Most of the time procedure is executed and populate data as per expectation when called from vb.net client. But it does not give expected outout in some scenario. The frequency for occurring the issue is  once in 15 days and there is no pattern in which the issue is occurring.

 

Can any one help to resolve the issue.

 

Thanks in advance!!!

 

 

 


SQL Server 2005 Replication - Replicated Databse Performance Issue

  

Hello,

 

I am struggling to work out a very frustrating replication issue and wondered if anyone could help me.

Here is my situation.

 

I have a virtual machine with 16gb RAM and 4 quad core 3Ghz processors and 250gb disk. This has Windows Server 2008 64 bit installed.

The machine has a SQL Server 2005 64 bit instance installed with SP3.

I have setup a publication on this SQL Server called pub1 , this publication publishes all tables/sp's /views and UDF's . I have set the article properties for the published tables as below.

- Copy Check Constraints = True

- Copy Clustered Index = True

- Copy Non Clustered Index = True

- Copy Default Value Spec = True

- Copy Collation = True

- Copy Insert, Update and Delete = True

- Copy unique key contraints = True

- Copy XML Indexes = True

Every other setting is set to false.

I have created a subscription to pub1 within the same SQL Server instance. The database has replicated everything I require without an issue.

If I run a query against the databse that I have published, it returns the query in less than 10 secs. If I run the same query against the subscription DB then this query takes over 30 mins to return.

I thought this was an issue with the indexes not replicating. From what I have selecte

SQL Server 2005 Try and Catch Exception Handling

  
I'm pretty excited to see that there is some real error handling for T-SQL code in SQL Server 2005. It's pretty painful to have your wonderfully architected .NET solution tainted by less-than-VBScript error handling for stored procedures in the database. The big difference being the addition of TRY..CATCH blocks. Let's take a look:
