You are creating a database on multiple disks that will be queried intensively by users. What are some steps that you can take to improve performance and avoid disk contention?

Posted By :Ravi Ranjan Kumar     Posted Date :July 24, 2011    Points :40   Category :Sql Server 
You could use disk striping (RAID) to increase performance.

A secondary strategy would be to use filegroups to improve performance, especially placing the transaction log file(s) on a separate disk from the data file(s) to avoid disk contention as SQL Server queries the database and records actions in the log. Also, filegroups could be used to separate a portion of the data files requiring frequent backups because they are actively modified.

Can multiple SharePoint installs point to the same DataBase?

Multiple SharePoint installs can use the same database server. Not literally the same database on that server. That server must be SQL Server 2000 or SQL Server 2005. It cannot be Oracle or another vendor. (More...)

How do you improve the performance of a server?

First check the processor and memory usage to see that processor is not above 80% utilization and memory not above 40-45% utilization then check the disk utilization using Performance Monitor, Secondly, use SQL Profiler to check for the users and current SQL activities and jobs running which might be a problem. Third would be to run UPDATE_STATISTICS command to update the indexes (More...)

what are the Steps to interact with database in connected architecture

2 create an obj for sql command

3 create an object for sql command by providing "query",cn.

4 open connection.

On a routine monitoring of the data files and transaction log, you notice that the transaction log is extremely close to being full. What will happen if the log fills? What steps can you take to avoid running out of transaction log space?

If the transaction log fills, you are unable to modify the data in the database until the log is archived or expanded. To avoid a full transaction log, you can monitor the log space regularly, expand the log whenever necessary, set the log to grow automatically, and create an alert to notify you when the available log space falls below a specified level (alerts are not covered in this training kit). Scheduling or performing frequent transaction log dumps is the best way to reclaim available space in the transaction log.

What are the different steps to access a database through ADO.NET?

Create a connection to the database using a connection object.
Open the Database Connection.
Invoke a command to create a Dataset object using an adapter object.
Use the Dataset object in code to display data or to change items in the database.
Invoke a command to update the database from the Dataset object using an adapter object.
Close the database connection.


What are the Steps of creating a Windows Process in .NET?

void OpenWithStartInfo()
ProcessStartInfo startInfo = new ProcessStartInfo("firefox.exe");
startInfo.Arguments = "www.questpond.com/demo.html";

static void Main()
// Get the path that stores favorite links.
string myFavoritesPath = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment
MyProcess myProcess = new MyProcess();
} (More...)

Database Concurrency in Sql Server.

When two or more user try to update same type of data in a table then Database Concurrency helps in this situation.

There are 2 types of Database Concurrency

Pessimistic: When one user try to change the data with pessimistic concurrency then a lock is placed on the data in a table so that another user cannot change data. when one user finishes then other user can able to change.

Optimistic: When two user works on the same data in a table and one change that data first then second user cannot change that same data becasue the which he have using is allready changed so he cannot do the change becasue change apply to another data that is changed by first user. (More...)

Its possible by inheriting from that class also.

Its possible from derived classes using base keyword. (More...)

No, Code can not execute in mutiple catch block (More...)
