We held our meeting last night and had a good time.  Thanks to those that were able to make it out.  Comments made after the meeting were favorable.  People enjoyed the meeting, there was a lot of discussion, and some good information disseminated.  Oh, and we had PIZZA too.

Our first presentation was a product review of a RedGate tool.  RedGate was kind enough to provide the software and information so Kerry could demo it for us.  The tool is called SQL Source Control.  RedGate has integrated SVN with their product line to be able to use a source control for SQL Server.  This tool will also integrate nicely with SQL Compare (allowing you to compare from Source to a Database – very handy).  The tool is pretty easy to use and will probably gain some popularity in the coming months.  I don’t see it on RedGates product page currently though.

The second presentation was by Stacia Misner.  She gave us an informal presentation on some of the new BI features in R2.  It looks to be more productive and will be good for the BI arena.

Thanks to all who helped pull the meeting together last night (RedGate, presenters, attendees).

  • @_dave705: @SqlrUs Sure, also the requirement is to update the existing rows once the import starts. #sqlhelp the are 4 different csv files to import.
  • @SqlrUs: @_dave705 BCP is an option, again depends on the requirements. I would test thoroughly first before deploying to Production. #sqlhelp
  • @__mandrew__: @SqlrUs @_dave705 I agree SSIS with a foreach loop is probably your best solution. PowerShell would work if u have the skillset. #sqlhelp
  • @SqlrUs: @_dave705 Depends. SSIS would be my first choice. Might be best to post a question on a forum & provide a link here. #sqlhelp
  • @RumblingDBA: Has anyone seen Logbuffer wait on SSD's? Can anything be done regarding it? I did not expect that wait on SSD #SQLHelp
  • @_dave705: Could you advise what is the best way to handle/automate multiple file imports into db?#sqlhelp
  • @sqL_handLe: @SQLStephenHorne #sqlhelp I vote its trouble. Due to 200 range limit of #SQLServer histograms, seems like orphaned dim rows=plan liability.
  • @SQLHA: @jrb2971 The health checks are part of the WSFC mechanism that are SQL specific in this case. So linked but not ... #sqlhelp
  • @SQLHA: @jrb2971 AGs respect votes since it is built into the cluster, but AGs don't really affect quorum mechanism. That's pure WSFC. #sqlhelp
  • @SQLHA: @jrb2971 It depends on many factors, not the least of which is OS version, etc. #sqlhelp
