Traditionally, the query optimizer made all of its plan choices ahead of query execution, and SQL Server wasn’t able to change those during execution. With adaptive query processing, SQL Server is able to dynamically adapt its optimization choices to actual run time conditions such as cardinality misestimations.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/what-you-need-know-about-adaptive-joins-over-rowstore" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/what-you-need-know-about-adaptive-joins-over-rowstore#comments SQL Server adaptive joins adaptive query processing query processing rowstore SQL Server SQL Server 2017 SQL Server 2017 CTP Tue, 09 May 2017 10:10:00 +0000 35101 at http://sqlmag.com Capacity Planning Done Right for SQL Server http://sqlmag.com/idera/capacity-planning-done-right <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by: IDERA </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Date: Thursday, June 22, 2017 at 12:00 PM EDT - Duration: 1 hour</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/idera/capacity-planning-done-right" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Idera Systems Management SQL Server Database Administration Mon, 01 May 2017 23:18:00 +0000 35151 at http://sqlmag.com Identifying and Solving Common SQL Server Performance Problems http://sqlmag.com/idera/sql-server-performance-problems <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by: IDERA </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Date: Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 12:00 PM EDT - Duration: 1 hour</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/idera/sql-server-performance-problems" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Idera Systems Management SQL Server Database Administration Mon, 01 May 2017 23:18:00 +0000 35111 at http://sqlmag.com Database Virtualization (Cloning) for SQL Server DBAs and Developers http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/database-virtualization-cloning-sql-server-dbas-and-developers <div class="field-byline"> Paul Stanton </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p class="p1"><span class="s1">The trend toward virtualized computing resources shows no signs of abating.&nbsp; Compute, memory, storage, and operating systems are commonly available on-demand. &nbsp; &nbsp; Code is accessed via Git or other repositories, and can be deployed to automated build and test environments in seconds.&nbsp; &nbsp; Developers are free to work without worrying about infrastructure, except when it comes to working with databases. &nbsp;</span></p></div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/database-virtualization-cloning-sql-server-dbas-and-developers" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/database-virtualization-cloning-sql-server-dbas-and-developers#comments SQL Server Mon, 01 May 2017 22:31:00 +0000 35081 at http://sqlmag.com Symbolic Links for Sharing Template Files or "How I Broke Management Studio with Symbolic Links" http://sqlmag.com/sql-server/symbolic-links-sharing-template-files-or-how-i-broke-management-studio-symbolic-links <div class="node-body article-body">Attempting to use symbolic links to share templates between devices will break SQL Server Management Studio.
