  SQL Server Tips by Robin Schumacher

Physical Design Revisions

As has been repeated throughout this book, the biggest area for performance gains almost always comes from things done at the physical design level. Of course, it is always best if a DBA creates a proper physical design in the first place, so one should strive to create a physical design that excels from the start.

Even the best designs need tweaking from time to time, so the DBA can expect to revise certain areas of the design to keep performance high. These areas include the following:

  • Indexing

  • File and Object Placements

  • Partitioning

  • General Denormalization

Some of these areas may be difficult to accomplish if dealing with packaged applications, but there are areas in which the DBA still has some degree of control. Before each of these points is explained in detail, it is advantageous to know what tools Microsoft provides to help with these tasks.
