  • Analyzing the errorlog

    How often do you do this? Look over each message (type) in the errorlog file and determine whether this is something you want to act on. Sure, some (but not all) of you have some monitoring solution in place, but are you 100% confident that it really will notify for all messages that you might find interesting? That there isn't even one little ...

  • Article released about moving databases

    Just a short notice that I've released an article about moving databases between SQL Server instances: You find it at http://www.karaszi.com/SQLServer/info_moving_database.asp.

  • Why we never want to trick SQL Server into rebuilding a log file

    ''Never'' is a strong word, so let me say that we really really want to avoid it, if at all humanly possible. In short, we will have a (potentially) broken database, both at the physical level and at the logical level. Read on. Just to be clear, when I refer to a ''log file'' here, I'm talking about a transaction log file, an .ldf file. Ever so ...

I did a ...

  • Watch out for that autogrow bug

    Under some circumstances, autogrow for database files can be set to some 12000 percent. I think this is limited to SQL Server 2005 and for databases upgraded from SQL Server 2000 (I didn't bother to search - feel free to comment if you know).

  • Where's that sys.messages management pack?

    I've often been thinking that ''somebody'' should produce a list and perhaps some ready-made TSQL code of the SQL Server error messages we want to be alerted for. Something like a Management Pack, but not tied to any particular sys mgmt software. Essentially, what error messages would we typically want to be alerted for, and some ready made TSQL ...
