How to Improve Performance highly active Database?

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :

Will  the performance of SQL server will be better if we have the Data importing happening on one SQl server and heving the Data exporting happening on a replicated server of the import server?


We import large volume of data from differnt source files and have the Data exported in a specific format?


Can you also suggest a better approach to have this kind of tasks approached?

How to improve the performance of ASP.NET MVC web applications

It is an in depth analysis of a Digg-like site and how it went from serving (on a test machine) 6 req/sec to 390 req/sec.

The biggest gain, 74 req/sec to 390 req/sec happened when he introduced data caching and another 25 req/sec where gained when he introduced the compilation of LINQ queries.

Tips to Improve Your ASP.NET Web site performance

ASP.NET has been developed with lots of features which makes developer life easy. Start from ViewState, PostBack, Server Controls , User Controls and etc. All of them can make your web development experience fun and easy, but improper use of them can cause your site performance slowdown. Most of the controls generate overhead to the client and server. Therefore in this article, I I will list out about things you can do and don't to improve your ASP.NET website performance.

Best Coding Techniques To Improve Performance for SharePoint Applications

As more developers write custom code by using the SharePoint Object Model, they encounter common issues that can affect application performance.

The following areas reflect the main issues encountered by developers as they write custom code by using the SharePoint object model:

§ Disposing of SharePoint objects

§ Caching data and objects

§ Writing code that is scalable

Performance tuning tips for database developers

Performance tuning is not easy and there aren't any silver bullets, but you can go a surprisingly long way with a few basic guidelines.

In theory, performance tuning is done by a DBA. But in practice, the DBA is not going to have time to scrutinize every change made to a stored procedure. Learning to do basic tuning might save you from reworking code late in the game.

Below is my list of the top 15 things I believe developers should do as a matter of course to tune performance when coding. These are the low hanging fruit of SQL Server performance - they are easy to do and often have a substantial impact. Doing these won't guarantee lightening fast performance, but it won't be slow either.

IIS 6.0: New Features Improve Your Web Server's Performance, Reliability, and Scalability


As the Web evolves, so does the role that Internet servers play. The Internet has seen the growth of e-commerce, B2B business, collaboration, streaming and other new media, and these new applications require new features to meet increasingly complex needs. Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) has many of the features today's mature Web sites need. This article outlines the features in the upcoming version 6.0 and discusses how they promote better scalability, reliability, and performance. Features such as Remote administration, caching, and metabase improvements, as well as custom isolation and security enhancements, make IIS 6.0 the Web server of the future.

How can I improve the performance of batch inserts with the JDBC driver?

In our testing, batch inserts are more than 4 times faster on Oracle with the Oracle JDBC driver than on SQL Server with either the Microsoft or jTDS JDBC drivers on the same hardware.  The issue appears to be with the JDBC driver, not the database server.  We have run tests with SQL Server 2005/2008 on a number of machines with similar results. The following code shows a simplified example of the code we are executing.  It uses a 2 column table which has an index on the id column.  In the test program we are inserting 100k rows with a batch size of 10k.  Any suggestions on improving the performance with the SQL Server JDBC driver?   private void testBatchInserts(Connection conn, int rows, int batchSize) throws SQLException {     String sql = "INSERT INTO Bench (id, name) VALUES (?, ?)";     conn.setAutoCommit(false);     PreparedStatement stmt = conn.prepareStatement(sql);     int batchCount = 0;     // For each row...     for (int i = 1; i <= rows; i++) {       // Create the record       stmt.setInt(1, i);       stmt.setString(2, "ROW #" + i);       // Add it to the batch       stmt.addBatch(); &nb

Slow performance when searching in "any part of field" of a SQL Server database using a Microsoft Ac

We have just migrated our back end database from Access to MS SQL Server 2008 R2. We have noticed better performance on our searches - unless we select to search in "any part of field" in Access (with Access' built-in search function - we use a mix of Access 2003 and 2007). This takes nearly 20 seconds to find the result, whereas before the migration it was taking 5-7 seconds (compared to instant results we now experience when searching for whole fields). The main fields we search are not large - usually just two words. Obviously it is better to search for a whole or start of a field, but this is not always possible. The contractor that assisted us in this project has told us that this "is just the way SQL works with Access". Is this really true? I find it hard to believe two MS products would have such a big issue between them. I presumed using SQL with an Access front end would be a common setup, which is why I thought this must be a problem with our setup. Is there any way to fix this speed issue?

migration MSDE 2000 SP3 database to SQL 2005 SP3: low performance on 2005 Express

I've detach MSDE 2000 SP3 database. I've attach into SQL 2005 Express SP3 and SQL 2005 Standard SP3. I've change compatibility level to 90. I've update statistics with EXEC sp_MSforeachtable @command1="UPDATE STATISTICS ? WITH FULLSCAN" The execution time of a TSQL into the same hardware (1 CPU, Quad Core) are: SQL 2005 Express SP3: 20" SQL 2005 Standard SP3: 0" The execution plan is different. Why?

How to improve performance

I have developed an application with two pages 'AddClient' and 'EditClient' and deployed it. It works fine but on the 'EditCient' page it takes about 8-9 seconds to populate clients information after a client has been selected from the DropDownList. I have around 40 controls, 5 update panels and a BingMap on this page. On Page Load I'm populating 8 DropDownLists from dataset and each DropDownLists has about 150 items. Clients DropDownList has about 6000 items. How can I improve the performance? Any help/ suggestions would be greatly appreciated..

Unable to see Active Directory Groups in the User Profile Database after Profile Import

SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise RTM. W2K8R2 w/multi-server setup: AD/DNS SQL 2008 WFE APP Claims Mode Web App only using Windows Integrated Auth So, this was never a problem in 2007, and I didn't even realize it was a problem in 2010 until I started to build a solution that utilized my blog article: InfoPath - User Roles in Browser-Enabled Forms Using AD Groups.  I went to utilize the same web method of the same web service, but I noticed that no data was showing up at all.  Typically, the GetUserMembership/GetCommonMembership methods return the specified user's memberships: AD Security Groups, AD Distribution Lists, and SharePoint Sites (not SharePoint Groups, though). My user profile sync is working.  All AD users are pulled in with the proper profile data. "Users and Groups" is selected in the Synchronization Entities section of my Sync Settings. Security groups are working for permissions and audience targeting.  Confirmed my users are affected properly by the use of Security Groups. My query to the GetUserMemberships web method (and GetCommonMemberships) is running (not failing), but it's not returning anything even though my user is in some Security Groups and has explicit membership to multiple sites. The GetUserProfileByName method of the same UserProfileService.asmx web service returns all the regular profile data

improve performance of gird on page index change

How to improve performance on an instance with large I/O activity?


I have a mirrored instance that throws up 'unsent log' and 'unrecovered log' errors. Everytime it does the I/O activity shoots up. I was wondering what can be done to improve this?

Extra memory? More processing power?

What if I spread the filegroups across different disks? Would this help?
