I've been trying to make the following query more performant by breaking it up into smaller pieces.
SELECT MT.A3+MT.A4 AS A34,MT.A3 -- ,M.* FROM Master_TAB M JOIN (SELECT M.A1,t3.A3,t3.A4,M.A6,M.A2,ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY A1,A6,A3,A4 ORDER BY A5 DESC) AS rownum
I know that the Spill is caused by the Sort but I can't remove the sort (sort can't be done in front end). My master table had 1.7 million rows and almost 200 columns (bad design? I know but can't be changed as there's too much that would be affected) every row is little over 1KB
Here's my attempt...
-- MASTER_TAB has 1.7 million rows and 50 columns CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tmp_ABC]( [A1] [varchar](13) NOT NULL, [A2] [varchar](5) NOT NULL, [A3] [varchar](4) NOT NULL, [A4] [varchar](4) NOT NULL, [A5] [int] NULL ) ON [PRIMARY]
This is the Query that is causing the Spill (in reality I'm supposed to bring back all 200 columns fro the master table but for debug purposes I limited the columns)
Select c.A3+c.A4 as A34, c.A3, c.A1 -- M.* from tmp_DEF c join MASTER_TAB M on M.A1 = c.A1 and M.A2 = c.A2 order by c.A3, C.A4
if I just run the following I get no spill:
Select c.A3+c.A4 as A34, c.A3, c.A1 from tmp_DEF c order by c.A3, C.A4
as soon as I add the Master table as a Join I get the Spill...
I read many articles, tried many suggested things (creating indexes... clustered, non-clustered) without success. Maybe I'm totally in Left Field and should enhance the performance going another route?
Message: Executed as user: NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM. The transaction log for database 'tempdb' is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 9002). The step failed in my sql server agent job i have the above error, this type of errors i got some of multiple jobs.
Is there a formula for calculating how expensive a transaction will be in terms of disk space used before its run. I dont want it accurate to the MB, but rough enough so I can determine how much additional space to assign to a transaction log or SAN volume.
Currently we're reindexing ~25billion rows, nothing too wide, say 12 columns consisting of 1 varchar(50) and the rest ints, bits and money.Roughly speaking if I reindex the clustered index on an int indetity, (with sort_in_tempdb) how would I calculate the the disk space used?
I proposed on a new server that we separate Data Files, Log Files, tempDB, Backups, etc. onto separate LUNS on a SAN with High Speed Solid State Drives.I was told that with the new technology with solid state SAN's that it would decrease performance and that it did not work the same way as it did when you had RAID 5's etc.I thought that if things were cared out correctly by a SAN Administrator they would know how to configure for optimal performance.
"tempdb is skipped. You cannot run a query that requires tempdb"?
We're running a .Net web application with a SQL Server 2000 backend, and we get the error intermittently. Restarting the SQL Server service seems to fix it, as it causes tempdb to be rebuilt, but this isn't a long term solution. Any direction or hints would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! - Mike
Hi, I am installing the SQL server 7.0 as a production server and as soon as the server is started, within a week the date will be around 10 millinon rows, so I want to know how much space should I allocate for the tempdb and what should be the incremental percentage of the the tempdb(New server).
I try to find some feedback regarding setting the TempDB files on a RAM disk.Specifically I am looking for "production results" that could show the difference/benefit of such an usage.The tests on physical server and VM I already made have shown a boost in overall SQL Server 2012 performance on SQL Server instances housing data for SharePoint 2013 and Dynamics AX 2012 R2.Graphic below show differences between 5 different configuration on the same physical server:
- Physical HD: Server with local HD - Physical SANEX1PRD: Server with TempDB files stored on a low-end SAN - Physical SAN1: Server with TempDB files stored on a high-end SAN (around 100000 IOps) - Physical SAN1 Jumbo: same setup with Jumbo Frame activated on NIC and DB engine - Physical RAMdrive: with TempDB files stored on a 16 GB soft RAM drive within OS memory
Results were really impressive for the DB engine housing Dynamics AX data. My colleagues from the SharePoint team told me it also boosted a bit overall SharePoint performances but they did not have any baseline comparison to show.If you have some feedback, results, links, whatever I am interested.Indeed before setting this to all our SQL Server 2012 instances I y rather collect some *real world* feedback.
It's been a long time since I've tried this, but I have a SQL Server that needs to be restored (including master) to a server whose drives and corresponding folders match the source server, with the exception of tempdb. When SQL Server initially starts I believe it will fail since it cannot find tempdb. I just don't recall if it fails to startup or if it starts up reporting errors and recreates tempdb in the same location as master. Does anyone recall the steps needed to point SQL Server to the new location of tempdb?
My prod server (only default instance) is configured TempDB 1024 MB data and Log 200MB. when I run 'sqlperf logspace' it shows most of time around 45% 'log space used'. There nothing going on the instance when I ran 'whoisactive' and select * from sys.sysprocesses where dbid = 2!!!
So my questions are is this normal to see log space around 45%, how to find what what CAUSED the tempdb log space to grow 45%? Is there something to do about it?
I have an ASP.Net (C# 2.0) application that has been using SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition with Service Pack 1 to hold the session state in a testing environment. Currently, the session state is being stored in TempDB, rather than the ASPState database. This has worked very well for us until yesterday. We installed SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, as well as the Critical Update for Service Pack 2 (KB933508). Once the SQL server was rebooted, I got the following error message when I tried to access the web application. The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'ASPStateTempApplications', database 'tempdb', schema 'dbo'.The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'ASPStateTempApplications', database 'tempdb', schema 'dbo'.The INSERT permission was denied on the object 'ASPStateTempApplications', database 'tempdb', schema 'dbo'. In the web.config file for the application, I have a SQL username and password defined that can access the ASPState database. To correct this issue, I had to give this user db_datareader and db_datawriter access to tempDB.
Has anyone else run across this problem, and is it related to SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2?
I am supporting a system that needs to allow users to have access to TempDB.
I set these users up using the GUI, but whenever the server is restarted, these users permissions are wiped out and the db_owner permission is lost and I have to manually go in and apply the permissons for the database to work again, it happens on most reboots but not all.
Is there anyway to keep these users permissions when the server is rebooted?
Your help is most appriciated.
P.S Could I create a stored procedure that when ever the Server is rebooted the procedure would recreate these permissions?
If I need to do this how would I go about doing this?
Please forgive my ignorance, I am by no means a SQL Expert, but have encountered a strange issue.
I have 6 SQL Servers, Primarily SQL 2005 (one older SQL 2000) all loaded on Windows Server 2003 SP1.
We use the servers for a proprietary database that we created which is the backend to a software package we sell.
The issue I have is: We have added a Security account to the servers, and in one case we have granted rights for this account to the TempDB system database. However, whenever we restart this server SQL drops this user account, thus severing connectivity for the app that is relying on that account.
I have set the account as DB-Owner etc, but nothing sems to keep it on re-start.
I have an instance with 4 datafiles for tempdb each set at initial size of 4G and growth rate of 100MB. After some time the initial file sizes seem to have changed automatically. They now read 3962,100,3688 and 2847 respectively. Is this something done by SQL Server itself? I cannot imagine that it was done manually.
I don't think there was a restart after the initial sizes of 4G were set, could this be related to the problem?
SQL Server 2008, Tempdb ("ReportServerTempDB")of the report server is growing enormously over 20gb in 3 days. All our reports drive from stored procedures which is a different server from Reportservertempdb. We have no report subscriptions.
We store no snapshots. All we do is run the reports.
I don't know where I start to investigate the issue.
I've recently started working with a public sector organisation who have 4 clustered sql instances that has 80% of it's db mirrored.
Looking at the transaction log - it seems that a transaction log backup is a good idea as the log is 4x larger than the data file.But I'm not allowed access to the physical server to check onto which drive I can create the trn. No RDP, no vmware - let's be honest I'm not even allowed to launch cmd line Also the Server Manager informs me "We will need to carefully look at database backups if you guys want to start doing these backups on box, as that will break our off box backup routine (it will screw the transaction chain)."
I don't understand how backing up the transaction log could break the "transaction chain"?
We are trying to create some alerts in our SQL Server 2014 BI edition.Issue is that, after I chose "Type" as "SQL Server performance condition alert" nothing is listed in the "Object" list box.SQL Server event alerts are working. Issue is only with "SQL Server performance condition alert".
I Run All checks for Validation cluster.I get Error On Disk Lists And Validation failed.With This error : Failed to prepare storage for testing on node "server name" The security account manager (SAM) or local security authority (LSA) server was in the wrong state to perform the security operation.
We recently had a problem with DB Mail. SQL jobs that sends an email succeeded but the email in the job fail to sent. There was a problem with the email server. The error is included. We fixed the problem with the email server. How can I get an alert when a DB Mail email fails send?
