SQL Server 2005 Best Practices Analyzer (July 2007)

Although the summer (which we have not seen much of in Belgium the last 2 weeks) has started, Microsoft is still on a roll. Check out the new SQL Server 2005 Best Practices Analyzer here.

By the way, for those of you who have not bought SQL Server 2005 Practical Troubleshooting: The Database Engine, it is really a must read for every SQL Server DBA. Apart from troubleshooting information it also contains a lot of 'inside' information about how SQL Server 2005 works, I just love that stuff but maybe that's just me :-)

A nice blog post here.

Tom Davidson and Sanjay Mishra bring us a great set of reports and scripts to generate a Dynamic Management View Performance Data Warehouse.
Check out this great solution here.

This is actually something we had on our to do list for quite some time so this will save us a lot of development work.
