Making Configuration Changes

Some database engines, such as SQL Server, have renowned reputations for being complex to tune from a configuration standpoint. In an effort to overcome this reputation, SQL Server has worked diligently with each new release to reduce the number of configuration parameters required to manage their engine, so much so that SQL Server10g comes close to looking like SQL Server in some respects.

By contrast, SQL Server has never had many configuration parameters to deal with and has offered automatic management of the most commonly tweaked areas such as memory. This does not mean that the DBA’s input is not necessary. To the contrary, from time to time manual configuration will be required. With that in mind, the following sections will examine some of the more common areas which the DBA might have to manually manipulate.
