Troubleshooting

pattern

Let SQL Experts thoroughly analyze your database environment using a combination of methods to diagnose, troubleshoot and improve database performance.

Database Server level

We will ensure that your Database Server has the correct configurations to take advantage of the hardware resources.

Operating System level

We will ensure that your Operating System is properly configured to best serveĀ  Database Server needs.

Application level

Application should be installed and configured as per vendor’s recommendations. Sometimes an overlooked recommendations or features can cause Application to perform poorly. Some applications may require different Collation and Sort Order settings.

System Databases

We will ensure System databases are properly set up. Some system databases requires special attention with regard to system database performance e.g. Tempdb in MS SQL Server.

User Databases

A well designed relational Database and properly configured database can give a big boost to the performance.

Transaction Log

Transaction logs require regular maintenance. Sometimes the transaction logs can grow too big if left unnoticed or unattended or no maintenance plan has been set up for it.

Index Tuning

A properly designed database will have necessary clustered and non-clustered indexes set up. This gives tremendous boost to data search and retrieval.

Database Locking

Locking is an unavoidable characteristic of any relational database management system (RDBMS) with lock-based concurrency. Most blocking problems happen because a single process holds locks for an extended period of time, causing a chain of blocked processes, all waiting on other processes for locks. This could cause data access and performance problem. With our sound experience, we can diagnose and provide solution to database locking.

Query Optimization

The query optimizer attempts to determine the most efficient way to execute a given query by considering the possible query plans. The goal of query optimization is to reduce the system resources required to fulfill a query, and ultimately provide the user with the correct result set faster.
