Database Workload Optimization

  • Grant Fritchey

Abstract

So far, you have learned about a number of aspects that can affect query performance, such as the tools that you can use to analyze query performance and the optimization techniques you can use to improve query performance. Next, you will learn how to apply this information to analyze, troubleshoot, and optimize the performance of a database workload. In this chapter, I cover the following topics:
  • The characteristics of a database workload

  • The steps involved in database workload optimization

  • How to identify costly queries in the workload

  • How to measure the baseline resource use and performance of costly queries

  • How to analyze factors that affect the performance of costly queries

  • How to apply techniques to optimize costly queries

  • How to analyze the effects of query optimization on the overall workload
