Last week (Jan 12, 2012), we held the user group meeting for the SQL Server Society of Las Vegas (a.k.a S3OLV or SSSOLV).

Presenting at that meeting was Josh Lewis (Twitter).  Josh presented on a pretty tough topic in my opinion.  He chose to present to us the topic of XML for the DBA.  You can read his abstract here.

We got the meeting rolling a little bit late.  Traffic must have been a bear down in LV.  Nonetheless, it got rolling and was a good meeting.

During this meeting we had our second installment of “Crap Code.”  Unintentionally, the crap code was a perfect segue into the presentation.  The crap code demonstrated extracting elements from XML related to the blocked process report.

Josh did a great job on the topic.  We recorded the meeting and you can view that here.  Check it out.  Get a little free learning on a difficult topic (for some us like myself).

Stay tuned, the February announcement is coming soon.

  • @SQLSoldier: @MidnightDBA SMO via .Net. Why no PowerShell. PowerShell works with 2008 +. #sqlhelp
  • @MidnightDBA: Server: No SSMS, no powershell, SQL 08 r2. Best TSQL script to create sp_add_job statements, et al, for all jobs on the instance? #sqlhelp
  • @AMtwo: @ajneuman AFAIK, the only way to upgrade is to point SSRS at the DB, and let it do it's thing. What error do you get on upgrade? #sqlhelp
  • @ajneuman: Is there a way to manually upgrade the Report Server databae? It's failing to upgrade from version 147 to 174. #sqlhelp #SSRS #sqlserver2016
  • @AngryPets: @SQLYard #sqlhelp Nope - they just need to be sized to handle the indexes on them. I'd check file stalls vs all files to see if helping/etc.
  • @SQLPrincess: #sqlhelp Any ideas on how to reverse engineer a data flow diagram from queries to show the data transformations?
  • @SQLYard: @AngryPets Thnks so the 3 filegroups different sizes are normal then? I was thinking they needed to be aligned in size. #sqlhelp
  • @AMtwo: @SqlRyan If you want to use source control with your report designer, use Visual Studio + SSDT. #sqlhelp
  • @AngryPets: @SQLYard #sqlhelp [2/2] storage, they aren't as helpful as they could be in 'spin disk' days. But still have benefits. Can be over-used.
  • @AngryPets: @SQLYard #sqlhelp Index filegroups are/can-be a best practice - depending upon data, load, and IO subsystem. With more modern ... [1/2]
