Post your question to a community of 467,917 developers. It's quick & easy.

SQL Server 2005 Profiler etc.


The goal is to systematically analyse the performance of indexes,
stored procedures, UDFs, views, triggers etc. in the current database
(which is quite complex, for instance, it has 200+ user tables, 150+
procedures) to see what could be improved.

Here's my understanding. Profile is passive, that is, it monitors
database activities/events, yes, one can see what's going on. Then,
probably using Database Engine Turing Advisor to make improvements
Also, I should add, for someone for instance, a consultant to a new
environment, he/she would have very limited time to understand the
business driver etc. for core entities/tables etc. hence, picking some
heavy duty stored procedures to analyze won't seem to be an option...

I'm sure there's are third party tools out there that would analyse a
large relational database and offer areas of improvement...

So, what tool are you using to achieve the above goal?

A good product I have seen deployed is the Veritas/Symantec i3. It does
a lot more than performance analysis and monitoring of SQL Server (for
example, it can do the same for the .NET application layers accessing
SQL Server).
