SQL 2012 Admin, Part 1 of 5: Configuring and Testing
with expert Chris Bell
In this course we’ll start on configuring and testing SQL Server, we will introduce you to the SQL Server engines and learn how they process incoming requests to the database to get the results you expect in the most efficient ways possible. We will take a good look at the 3 main resources that SQL Server uses, the CPU, Memory and Disk I/O. We will even reveal a 4th resource that that is commonly forgotten about. We will see how each of these affects the way SQL Server performs, and how the proper configuration of each helps to ensure a stable environment. Then we will cover planning for your SQL Server database’s growth. Then we will use Microsoft’s free SQLIO tool to test the I/O of our SQL Server’s hard drives. We will then show you how to determine where performance maxes out based on the results of SQLIO.
