As developers, we try to write efficient code - but efficient in what? Development time or overall performance?
In this article, Jon Smith describes how to investigate and understand performance so that you can decide how to balance these two goals.

Why is 'DLM' important?
While Microsoft gives us the SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) as a good tooling for developing databases and the ability to store them into Team Foundation Server Version Control, it is only a entry point into the whole DLM (database lifecycle management) process. 

This is an interview between Stefan Mieth (ALM Consultant) & Stephanie Herr (DLM expert at Redgate), introducing DLM as a concept to a German ALM audience. They talk about:
• what DLM means 
• why DLM is important to an ALM audience
• diving a little bit into Redgate's tool SQL Source Control
• some suggestions about some simple things readers can do right away to improve their ALM / DLM processes
• how can TFS and SSMS work together?
• can database development be agile?

Give it a read here:

New Custom Metric for SQL Monitor
'Tempdb allocation contention' by Fabiano Amorim

If your code uses temporary tables, variable tables or dynamic cursors, this metric can help identify whether you have contention on tempdb allocation. Tempdb is shared by all databases and is used for many operations in a SQL Server instance, so it is common for tempdb to cause performance problems.

This metric returns the current number of pagelatch waits on the tempdb database. Any tempdb page allocation/deallocation or any space changing operations (such as INSERT) acquires a latch on PFS, SGAM or GAM pages to update the space tracking information. Since most temporary objects are heaps and are less than 64KB, a large number of such operations can cause excessive waits when acquiring latches.

Download it now.

SQL Monitor Metric: Number of Unused Indexes
Use this metric with SQL Monitor to monitor the number of indexes per database that haven't been used for the last month. Indexes that aren't in use should be removed because they can degrade INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE performance, and they use storage space.
Download the metric now...
