MS SQL Server 2005 (part 1)


AuthorTim Chapman
Title

Rebuild indexes online with SQL Server 2005

Annotation Indexes are specialized data structures that operate on tables (and sometimes views) in the database engine used to aid in the searching for and sorting of data. Indexes are vital to the database engine returning results quickly. As data is modified in the underlying tables that the indexes operate on, the indexes become fragmented. Fragmentation is when the logical ordering of an index does not match the physical ordering of the underlying table or view. As the indexes become more and more fragmented, query times can begin to suffer. The remedy to this situation is to either reorganize or rebuild the index in SQL Server 2005. (Note: This feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of the product.)

Write custom trace files in TSQL

Annotation SQL Server 2005's default trace is great for monitoring system information and for finding out what happened on your server after problems occur. However, there are times when the events that the default captures are not what you need. Here are instructions for how you can create your own trace files in TSQL to catch events on your database machine.

AuthorAcey J. Bunch
Title

Introducing SQL Native Client

Annotation By now you may have heard of a new data access technology called “SQL Native Client” that will ship with SQL Server 2005. But before we go much further in discussing it, let’s be clear about what we mean by “new”. It is new in that this data access library did not exist prior to SQL Server 2005, but rest assured that it is not some radical new design for accessing data!

Recursive Queries in SQL:1999 and SQL Server 2005

Annotation Everybody has at one time in his life, had experience with recursion. When I was young, I was on leave in Paris in an old building in which the corridor had two mirrors facing each other. When I passed between theses mirrors my body was reflected ad infinitum, and I was very proud, joyfully admiring my image and having a concrete view of what is the infinite. That is it: recursion... A process which is able to reproduce himself for some period of time.
In mechanical situations, we do not accept infinite recursion. In the real world, we must have a stopping point because our universe is closed. Waiting for the end of an infinite process, which in fact is eternity, is a hard job ! As Woody Allen says : "eternity is really long, especially near the end ..."
In computer management, recursion is a special technique that is able, sometimes, to treat complex algorithms with an elegant coding style : a few lines will do a complete job. But recursion has some perverse effects: the resources to do the job are maximized by the fact that every call of the embedded process needs to open a complete environment space, which has the effect of using a large volume of memory.
A mathematician, whose name I cannot recall, says that every recursive algorithm can be reduce to an iterative one by the use of a stack!
But our purpose in this article is to speak about RECURSIVE QUERIES in SQL, regarding the ISO standard and what MS SQL Server 2005 has done with it.

CTE Performance

AnnotationI just finished reading an article on the net, which says that table variables can be twice as fast as CTEs. This confused me a bit, because I recently tested a complex UDF that used CTEs to replace table variables. The CTE version was over twenty times faster!
