SQL Server Speed Problem Checklist

* Windows File Fragmentation. It amazes me how many clients/prospects haven't defragged their database server and this is robbing them of a huge amount of performance. Check yours and you might be surprised  by how much this simple step can help you reclaim lost system performance. After learning this, many clients buy or setup a disk defragmentation routine for their database server and other computer's whose performance they care about.

* Stored Procedures. Stored Procedures can be a big help on database performance. These are especially handy when many tables need to be queried at once, or, a number of queries need to be done to come up with a final result. Just having a Stored Procedure doesn't automatically solve all problems, though. Of course, they must be crafted in a way to optimize performance, and then you will receive it's benefits.

* Database Temp Tables. Database Temp tables can help you get faster query results. In Stored Procedures, temp tables can hold the results of a query, which, if needed, can then be applied to another query. This can come in handy if you have data changed which need to be made to a subset of data, which are then queried against another set of data. Improperly used, though, these also can lead to slower, and not improved, performance.

* Table Indexes Fields which are routinely queried against are great candidates for indexes. Like spices on food, though, too many can ruin things, and sometimes, too few can leave things lagging.

* Poorly Designed Queries Just because a query returns the values you are looking for doesn't mean it is built as best as it can be. Sometimes queries which give you the data you are looking for can take a long time. If so, these queries are great candidates for looking at what they are doing and optimizing the SQL, or whatever else may be needed, to make the results come up faster and use fewer system resources.

* Poorly Designed Database Views Sometimes database users use views to get the data they are looking for. It is quite easy to create a view with a design interface a lot like Microsoft Access. Unfortunately, though, the ease of building these queries also allows you to craft searches in the database which can be very inefficient. Use these with caution, and, they could be a big cause of a lot of your database slow performance problems and tapped out database server resource, if you rely on them heaving for your queries.

* Overworked Server
If your database server also functioning as a file server, mail server, FTP server, who knows what else server? If so, this is not good. You may need to let that overworked box split up into separate boxes and let one of them be a stand alone server for your database needs. Is it on a 100, 10, or Gigabit network connection? maybe your queries are going fine, but, your network is overtaxed to deliver you the results in a quick response time.
