SQL Server 2014 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: Calculate Total Rows in SQL Server 2014

clock June 24, 2016 22:15 by author Anthony

In this tutorial, I will write an article about How to Calculate Total Rows Inserted per Second in SQL Server 2014. Ever expected to compute the quantity of columns embedded consistently, for each table in every database on a server? Alternately, have you ever expected to approve that all methods have quit keeping in touch with tables? These sorts of inquiries come up routinely for me. To help with this, I've composed the following script, which inspects metadata qualities utilizing sys.partitions. This system isn't as precise as running SELECT COUNT(*) FROM, however its much quicker.

Remember, since it’s just looking at row counts, its very little help on tables that have a considerable measure of update/delete  action. Yet it does what I need it to do, and I utilize it pretty frequently, so I thought I'd experience case any other individual can advantage from it as well.

/* Declare Parameters */

DECLARE @newBaseline BIT = 1 -- change to 0 when you don't want to replace the baseline, i.e. after initial run
  , @delay CHAR(8) = '00:00:30'; -- change as needed 
IF @newBaseline = 1
BEGIN
    IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#baseline') IS NOT NULL
        DROP TABLE #baseline; 
    CREATE TABLE #baseline
    (
         database_name  SYSNAME
       , table_name     SYSNAME
       , table_rows     BIGINT
       , captureTime    DATETIME NULL
    );
END 

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#current') IS NOT NULL

SQL Server 2014 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: Error While Saving Table in SQL Server

clock May 31, 2016 20:46 by author Anthony

That happens because sometimes it is necessary to drop and recreate a table in order to change something. This can take a while, since all data must be copied to a temp table and then re-inserted in the new table. Since SQL Server by default doesn't trust you, you need to say "OK, I know what I'm doing, now let me do my work." This problem occurs when the Prevent saving changes that require the table re-creation option is enabled, and you make one or more of the following changes to the table:

Free ASP.NET Hosting - Europe

  • You change the Allow Nulls setting for a column.
  • You reorder columns in the table.
  • You change the column data type.
  • You add a new column.

When you change a table so that you alter the metadata structure of the table, and then you save the table, the table must be re-created based on these changes. This may result in the loss of metadata and in a direct loss of data during the re-creation of the table. If you enable the Prevent saving changes that require the table re-creation option in the Designer section of the SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) Options window, you receive the error message that is mentioned in the “Symptoms” section.

To change the Prevent saving changes that require the table re-creation option, follow these steps:

  • Open SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS).
  • On the Tools menu, click Options.
  • In the navigation pane of the Options window, click Designers.
  • Select or clear the Prevent saving changes that require the table re-creation check box, and then click OK.

Note If you disable this option, you are not warned when you save the table that the changes that you made have changed the metadata structure of the table. In this case, data loss may occur when you save the table.

Risk of turning off the “Prevent saving changes that require table re-creation” option

Although turning off this option can help you avoid re-creating a table, it can also lead to changes being lost. For example, suppose that you enable the Change Tracking feature in SQL Server to track changes to the table. When you perform an operation that causes the table to be re-created, you receive the error message that is mentioned in the “Symptoms” section. However, if you turn off this option, the existing change tracking information is deleted when the table is re-created. Therefore, we recommend that you do not work around this problem by turning off the option.

To determine whether the Change Tracking feature is enabled for a table, follow these steps:

  • In SQL Server Management Studio, locate the table in Object Explorer.
  • Right-click the table, and then click Properties.
  • In the Table Properties dialog box, click Change Tracking.

If the value of the Change Tracking item is True, this option is enabled for the table. If the value is False, this option is disabled.

When the Change Tracking feature is enabled, use Transact-SQL statements to change the metadata structure of the table.

Steps to reproduce the problem

  • In SQL Server Management Studio, create a table that contains a primary key in the Table Designer tool.
  • Right-click the database that contains this table, and then click Properties.
  • In the Database Properties dialog box, click Change Tracking.
  • Set the value of the Change Tracking item to True, and then click OK.
  • Right-click the table, and then click Properties.
  • In the Table Properties dialog box, click Change Tracking.
  • Set the value of the Change Tracking item to True, and then click OK.
  • On the Tools menu, click Options.
  • In the Options dialog box, click Designers.
  • Click to select the Prevent saving changes that require table re-creation check box, and then click OK.
  • In the Table Designer tool, change the Allow Nulls setting on an existing column.
  • Try to save the change to the table.

SQL Server 2014 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: Avoid Multiple Database Request to Improve Performance

clock May 26, 2016 23:35 by author Peter

It is not smart to execute multiple db request for loading single page.  Review your database code to see if you have got request paths that go to the database quite once. each of these round-trips decreases the number of requests per second your application will serve. By returning multiple resultsets in a single database request, you can cut the total time spent communicating with the database.

In order to enhance performance you should execute single keep proc and bring multiple resultset in to single dB request. In this article i will explain you how to avoid multiple database request and how to bring multiple resultset into single dB request. Consider a scenario of loading a Product Page, which displays:
Product information
Product Review information.

In order to bring two information request in single dB request, your sql server keep proc ought to be declared as below.

SQL Server Stored Proc


CREATE PROCEDURE GetProductDetails
 @ProductId bigint,
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON

--Product Information
Select ProductId,
 ProductName,
 ProductImage,
 Description,
 Price
From Product
Where ProductId = @ProductId


--Product Review Information
Select  ReviewerName,
 ReviewDesc,
 ReviewDate
From ProductReview
Where ProductId = @ProductId


Asp.net, C# Code to bring multiple db request into single db request
Code Inside Data Access Class Library (DAL)
public DataSet GetProductDetails()
{
SqlCommand cmdToExecute = new SqlCommand();
cmdToExecute.CommandText = "GetProductDetails";
cmdToExecute.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
DataSet dsResultSet = new DataSet();
SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(cmdToExecute);

try
{
    var conString = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnStr"];
    string strConnString = conString.ConnectionString;
    SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(strConnString);

    cmdToExecute.Connection = conn;

    cmdToExecute.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@ ProductId", SqlDbType.BigInt, 8, ParameterDirection.Input, false, 19, 0, "", DataRowVersion.Proposed, _productId));

    //Open Connection
    conn.Open();

    // Assign proper name to multiple table
    adapter.TableMappings.Add("Table", "ProductInfo");
    adapter.TableMappings.Add("Table1", "ProductReviewInfo");
    adapter.Fill(dsResultSet);

    return dsResultSet;             
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    // some error occured.
    throw new Exception("DB Request error.", ex);
}
finally
{
    conn.Close();
    cmdToExecute.Dispose();
    adapter.Dispose();
}
}

Code Inside Asp.net .aspx.cs page
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   if (Request.QueryString[ProductId] != null)
   {
      long ProductId = Convert.ToInt64(Request.QueryString[ProductId].ToString()); 
  
      DataSet dsData = new DataSet();

      //Assuming you have Product class in DAL
      ProductInfo objProduct = new ProductInfo();
      objProduct.ProductId = ProductId;
      dsData = objProduct.GetProductDetails();

      DataTable dtProductInfo = dsData.Tables["ProductInfo"];
      DataTable dtProductReviews = dsData.Tables["ProductReviewInfo"];

      //Now you have data table containing information
      //Make necessary assignment to controls
      .....
      .....
      .....
      .....
      ..... 

    }
}

SQL Server Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: SQL Server Event Alerts

clock May 24, 2016 18:34 by author Anthony

In this article, we will discuss about SQL Server Alert and conditional responses. SQL Server event alerts that respond by notifying operators can lead to too much noise in your email inbox. There is a built-in option to specify a number of minutes to delay between responses. For many, that setting alone is sufficient to keep the spam down to a minimum. But events may still occur during that "delay between responses" window. And SQL Server will fire alerts for them. You may not always want the response suppressed.

Free ASP.NET Hosting - Europe

SQL Server provides another way to more selectively respond to alerts: by executing a SQL Agent job, and using tokens within the job steps. To use tokens, you'll need to enable their use. Open SQL Server Agent Properties, select the Alert System page, and check the "Replace tokens for all job responses to alerts" checkbox as seen here:

Now let's look at a typical alert. The one pictured below raises alerts for errors with a severity level of 20. On the Response page, we see the alert is configured to respond by executing a job. (From this dialog you can choose an existing job, or click to create a new one.) The Notify Operators option is left unchecked.

Within the "DBA-Catch Severity 20 Alert" SQL Agent job, T-SQL job steps that use tokens can be created. Here is an example:

DECLARE @Descr VARCHAR(MAX) = '$(ESCAPE_SQUOTE(A-MSG))';

 

IF @Descr LIKE '%CLIENT: 127.0.0.1%'

BEGIN

    --Do nothing.

    PRINT 'Alert originating from pen test server.'

END

ELSE

BEGIN

    DECLARE @To NVARCHAR(MAX) = 'DMason@xyz.com';

    DECLARE @Subj NVARCHAR(255);

    DECLARE @EmailBody NVARCHAR(MAX);

    DECLARE @Date VARCHAR(MAX) = '$(ESCAPE_SQUOTE(DATE))';

    DECLARE @Time VARCHAR(MAX) = '$(ESCAPE_SQUOTE(TIME))';

 

    SET @Subj = 'SQL Server Alert System: ''20-Fatal Error in Current Process''' +

        'occurred on ' + @@SERVERNAME

    SET @Date = SUBSTRING(@Date, 5, 2) + '/' + RIGHT(@Date, 2) + '/' + LEFT(@Date, 4);

    SET @Time = LEFT(@Time, 2) + ':' + SUBSTRING(@Time, 3, 2) + ':' + RIGHT(@Time, 2);

    SET @EmailBody = 'DATE/TIME: ' + @Date + ' ' + @Time + '

 

DESCRIPTION: ' + @Descr + '

COMMENT: (None)

JOB RUN: (None)'

    EXEC msdb..sp_send_dbmail

        @recipients = @To,

        @subject = @Subj,

        @body = @EmailBody

END


There are three tokens within the T-SQL (highlighted in yellow above): A-MSG, DATE, and TIME. SQL server replaces these three tokens as follows:

 

  • A-MSG: Message text. If the job is run by an alert, the message text value automatically replaces this token in the job step.

 

  • DATE: Current date (in YYYYMMDD format).

 

  • TIME: Current time (in HHMMSS format).

 

Note the conditional logic, checking the error message. If it originates from a server with a particular IP address, no action is taken. Otherwise, an email is sent with the relevant error information. (This is a real-world example involving recurring penetration tests. The pen test server conducted port scans on the SQL host and attempted numerous connections as [sa]. I got an onslaught of unwanted email.)

Tokens are a powerful tool that give you a lot of flexibility. This very simple example just scratches the surface of what is possible. Use your imagination. Get creative. Happy alerting!

SQL Server Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Use Visual Studio 2010 as a SQL Server?

clock March 29, 2016 23:29 by author Anthony

In this article I will discuss about how to use Visual Studio 2010 as a SQL Server database management studio. If you want to create applications using the .NET Framework you certainly will need Microsoft Visual Studio as IDE to build your application. If you have installed SQL Server course you will need a SQL Server Management Studio as your medium to process and manipulate data.


What if you've already installed Microsoft Visual Studio but when installing Microsoft SQL Server does not install the SQL Server Management Studio?

Of course you can not query your data right, and you can only pass the command prompt. But with Microsoft Visual SQL Management Studio as the media, you can process the data in the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE

  1. Run Microsoft Visual Studio, and then open Server Explorer listed on the menu view. After that will appear Data Connection and Server.
  1. Add a data connection by clicking the right mouse button and select Add Connection. Then see the database connection will appear.
  2. Enter your name server as the instance name on your SQL Server, log into SQL by using the username and password to get access, or by using Windows authentication. Then select the database you want to use and then press the Test Connection button, and make sure that the connection to the database successfully.

  3. If the Data Connection has been filled with database structure view you have, and then query the data from the database table and by right-clicking on the Data Connection that you created and select New Query.

  4. It will display the Query Window. Then select the table you want to create the query. But not only the table that can be in the query, Views, Function and Synonims you can also query the right to suit your needs.

  5. Once you select a table, the query functioned in accordance with the display data or you can write a query that you want on the bottom. To be able to execute the query, you can click the Execute button or by pressing the F5 key

SQL Server 2014 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Remove Duplicate Data From String on SQL Server?

clock March 15, 2016 21:10 by author Peter

In this tutorial, let me show you how to remove data from string in which data are separated by delimiter. An identifier that complies with all the rules for the format of identifiers can be used with or without delimiters. An identifier that does not comply with the rules for the format of regular identifiers must always be delimited.

Delimited identifiers are used in these situations:

  • When reserved words are used for object names or portions of object names.

    It is recommended that reserved keywords not be used as object names. Databases upgraded from earlier versions of Microsoft® SQL Server™ may contain identifiers that include words not reserved in the earlier version, but are reserved words for SQL Server 2000. You can refer to the object using delimited identifiers until the name can be changed.

  • When using characters not listed as qualified identifiers.

    SQL Server allows any character in the current code page to be used in a delimited identifier; however, indiscriminate use of special characters in an object name may make SQL statements and scripts difficult to read and maintain.

You can use the following code:   

CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[DistinctList] 
    ( 
    @List VARCHAR(MAX), 
    @Delim CHAR 
    ) 
    RETURNS 
    VARCHAR(MAX) 
    AS 
    BEGIN 
    DECLARE @Return_List [varchar](max); 
    DECLARE @Temp_Str [varchar](max); 
    DECLARE @Char_index int; 
    SET @List=@List+@Delim; 
    SET @Return_List=''; 
    SET @Char_index=CHARINDEX(@Delim,@List,1); 
    WHILE @Char_index>0 
    BEGIN 
    SET @Temp_Str=SUBSTRING(@List,1,@Char_index-1); 
    SET @Return_List=@Return_List+@Temp_Str+@Delim; 
    SET @List=REPLACE(@List,@Temp_Str+@Delim,''); 
    SET @Char_index=CHARINDEX(@Delim,@List,1); 
    END 
    Return SUBSTRING(@Return_List,1 ,LEN(@Return_List)-1); 
    END  


In this function first parameter take the string  and second parameter the delimiter ,on the behalf of this delimiter we split the string and remove the duplicate data.
    DECLARE @String [varchar](max); 
    SET @String='10,11,12,10,11'; 
    SELECT dbo.DistinctList(@String,',') AS List; 


And here is the output:
10,11,12

SQL Server 2014 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: Make an Index on #temp tables on SQL Server

clock March 8, 2016 21:12 by author Peter

Today let me explain you about how to make an Index on #temp tables. #Temp tables are much like SQL tables that are defined and stored in TempDB. Difference between them and a permanent table is they are not allowed to have foreign keys.


One of the feature of temp table (#temp) is that we can add a clustered or non clustered index. Also, #temp tables allow for the auto-generated columns (fields) to be created. This can help the optimizer when determining the number of records. Below is an example of creating both a clustered and non-clustered index on a temp table.
-- creating temp table - #employees
CREATE TABLE #Employees 

ID INT IDENTITY(1,1), 
EmployeeID INT, 
EmployeeName VARCHAR(50) 


INSERT INTO #Employees 

EmployeeID, 
EmployeeName 

SELECT 
EmployeeID = e.EmployeeID 
,EmployeeName = e.EmployeeName 
FROM dbo.Employees e 
 
-- creating clustered index 
CREATE CLUSTERED INDEX IDX_C_Employees_EmployeeID ON #Employees(EmployeeID)
 
-- creating non-clustured index 
CREATE INDEX IDX_Users_UserName ON #Employees(EmployeeName)

How To Collect Performance Metrics From SQL Server Query Analyzer?

clock March 1, 2016 20:37 by author Peter

In this topic, I will show you how to collect value of performance counters from query analyzer. Microsoft® SQL Server SQL Query Analyzer is a graphical tool that allows you to:

  • Create queries and other SQL scripts and execute them against SQL Server databases. (Query window)
  • Quickly create commonly used database objects from predefined scripts. (Templates)
  • Quickly copy existing database objects. (Object Browser scripting feature)
  • Execute stored procedures without knowing the parameters. (Object Browser procedure execution feature)
  • Debug stored procedures. (T-SQL Debugger)
  • Debug query performance problems. (Show Execution Plan, Show Server Trace, Show Client Statistics, Index Tuning Wizard)
  • Locate objects within databases (object search feature), or view and work with objects. (Object Browser)
  • Quickly insert, update, or delete rows in a table. (Open Table window)
  • Create keyboard shortcuts for frequently used queries. (custom query shortcuts feature)
  • Add frequently used commands to the Tools menu. (customized Tools menu feature)

The following code is demo query to do same. You can create collect any counter vale for instant. Now write the code:

/*************************************************/
USE Master
GO
Create Table Perfmon (Object_name Varchar (200),
Counter_name varchar (300) , Instance_name varchar (100),
cntr_value bigint, cntr_type bigint , date varchar (20))
GO
Insert into Perfmon
SELECT object_name , counter_name , instance_name , cntr_value, cntr_type
, convert (varchar (20),getdate () , 120) as date
FROM sys.dm_os_performance_counters
WHERE OBJECT_NAME in
(
'MSSQL$Servername:Databases' ,
'MSSQL$Servername:General Statistics',
'MSSQL$Servername:Buffer Manager' ,
'MSSQL$Servername:Locks'
)
AND counter_name in
(
'Transactions/sec' ,'User Connections','Page life expectancy',
'Buffer cache hit ratio', 'Buffer cache hit ratio base' ,
'Free pages','Total pages','Target pages','Lock Wait Time (ms)'
)
Select @@servername
GO
Select *, case
when cntr_type  = 65792  Then 'instant_value'
when cntr_type = 272696576 Then 'Incremental'
When cntr_type = 1073939712 Then 'Instant fraction'
When cntr_type = 537003264 Then 'Use this with Base value'
else 'null' end 
from Master.dbo.perfmon
