No, It process data set on row by row basis.

What is Record-at-a-time?

The Low level or Procedural DML can specify and retrieve each record from a set of records. This retrieve of a record is said to be Record-at-a-time. (More...)

What is JIT (just in time)? how it works?

Before Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) can be executed, it must be converted by a .NET Framework just-in-time (JIT) compiler to native code, which is CPU-specific code that runs on the same computer architecture as the JIT compiler.
Rather than using time and memory to convert all the MSIL in a portable executable (PE) file to native code, it converts the MSIL as it is needed during execution and stores the resulting native code so that it is accessible for subsequent calls.
The runtime supplies another mode of compilation called install-time code generation. The install-time code generation mode converts MSIL to native code just as the regular JIT compiler does, but it converts larger units of code at a time, storing the resulting native code for use when the assembly is subsequently loaded and executed.
As part of compiling MSIL to native code, code must pass a verification process unless an administrator has established a security policy that allows code to bypass verification. Verification examines MSIL and metadata to find out whether the code can be determined to be type safe, which means that it is known to access only the memory locations it is authorized to access.

What is Garbage Collection in .Net? Garbage collection process?

The process of transitively tracing through all pointers to actively used objects in order to locate all objects that can be referenced, and then arranging to reuse any heap memory that was not found during this trace. The common language runtime garbage collector also compacts the memory that is in use to reduce the working space needed for the heap. (More...)

What is Set-at-a-time or Set-oriented?

The High level or Non-procedural DML can specify and retrieve many records in a single DML statement. This retrieve of a record is said to be Set-at-a-time or Set-oriented. (More...)

What is Cursor?

Cursor is a database object used by applications to manipulate data in a set on a row-by-row basis, instead of the typical SQL commands that operate on all the rows in the set at one time.
In order to work with a cursor we need to perform some steps in the following order:
. Declare cursor
. Open cursor
. Fetch row from the cursor
. Process fetched row
. Close cursor
. Deallocate cursor

Session state vs View state

In some cases, using view state is not feasible. The alternative for view state is session state. Session state is employed under the following situations:
. Large amounts of data - View state tends to increase the size of both the HTML page sent to the browser and the size of form posted back. Hence session state is used.
. Secure data - Though the view state data is encoded and may be encrypted, it is better and secure if no sensitive data is sent to the client. Thus, session state is a more secure option.
. Problems in serializing of objects into view state - View state is efficient for a small set of data. Other types like DataSet are slower and can generate a very large view state (More...)

Disadvantage of Cursor ?

Cursor plays there row quite nicely but although there are some disadvantage of Cursor .Because cursor doing roundtrip it will make network line busy and also make time consuming methods. First of all select query gernate output and after that cursor goes one by one so roundtrip happen.

Another disadvange of cursor are ther are too costly because they require lot of resources and temporary storage so network is quite busy. (More...)

How to get which Process is Blocked in SQL SERVER ?

There are two ways to get this sp_who and sp_who2 . You cannot get any detail about the sp_who2 but its provide more information then the sp_who . And other option from which we can find which process is blocked by other process is by using Enterprise Manager or Management Studio, these two commands work much faster and more efficiently than these GUI-based front-ends. (More...)

What is a cursor?

A cursor is used to access the result set stored in the memory on execution of a query. It is a special programming construct that allows data to be manipulated on a row-by-row basis. They point to a certain location within a record set and allow the operator to move forward (and sometimes backward, depending upon the cursor type) through the results one record at a time (More...)

What is the difference between thread and process?

Thread - is used to execute more than one program at a time.
process - executes single program.
A thread is a path of execution that run on CPU, a process is a collection of threads that share the same virtual memory. A process has at least one thread of execution, and a thread always run in a process context. (More...)

9. Click Ok.

Restart your system.

To verify :
Open your TaskManager by pressing 'Ctrl+Alt+Del' and locate for Searchprotocolhost.exe in process tab. (More...)

Which typically consumes more memory: application state or session state?

Session state tends to use much more memory than application state, because copies of all variables are stored for each user. (More...)
