SQL Server Performance Turning Tips


In a recent article by Kenneth Fisher, he provides a couple of important tips, and he also reviews a product called Statistics Parser.

When trying to tune a query it’s frequently helpful to know precisely how long the query took. When you SET STATISTICS TIME ON SQL will return the CPU and elapsed time spent on parsing, compiling and executing the query. You might think “Oh big deal, I can see how long my query took in the bottom right hand corner of the window.” Well yes, but that’s in seconds and this is in milliseconds. Not a big deal if you are tuning down from 1 hr but if you are starting at 2 seconds it’s pretty helpful.
