does sql server collect stats on full table scans?

Hi all. Anyone know if sql server collects stats on how many full
table scans a table gets and if so how do I get at those stats? Trying
to track down poorly indexed tables / processes and I am guessing that
sql server does have this data secreted away somewhere much like my
db2 and informix databases do.

There is a performance counter under the "SQL Server:Access Methods"
category called "Full Scans/sec". Unfortunately nothing cumulative as far
as I can see. You could do a trace against your database, set an alert for
Full Scans/sec > 0 and see what was happening at that time.

Hi, Considering code below. Will it make GC to actually collect. One application creates new instances of a class from 3rd party assembly in a loop (it has to). That class doesn't have .Dispose or any similar method. I want to make sure GC keeps up with the loop. My reasoning if Thread.Sleep(1000) is called; GC will take priority it do its work, right? GC.Collect(); GC.WaitForPendingFinalizers(); System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(1000);

I understand the basic premise: when the object is out of scope or has been set to null (given that there are no funky finalizers), executing GC.Collect will clean up your resources. So I have a basic test. I read a bunch of data into a dataset by using a command and a data adapter object, .Dispose(ing) as I go. The moment the data is in the Dataset, the Mem Usage column in the Task Manager goes up by 50 MB (which is about right). I...

I'm calling one stored procedure with a prepared statement on the server with 6 arrays of around 1200 elements each as parameters. The parameters are around 220K in total. This is taking a surprising amount of time. Thus I put a lot of logging into the application and in the stored procedure that's getting called. It seems that almost all of most of the time is spent before the stored procedure is even entered. What wakes my suspicion...

Is there any decent library for basic stats? I am just looking for the basics, like quartiles, median, standard deviation, mean, min, max, regression, etc. I was going to use SciPy, but I use Python 2.4, and it seems to be supported primarily for 2.3... What other statistical packages have any level of public support at this point?
