SQL Server Stored Procedures can help many slow running database
queries finish much faster. They can do so in a number of ways:
* Stored Procedure database execution plans are saved in the
computer so the database does not perform the same analysis on each
running of it.
Normally, before the Microsoft SQL Server
database executes a query, it looks at what is being asked to be
done by the query and determines the most effective way to get the
information. On complicated operations, this can take some time.
But, with Stored Procedures, this determination of the best route to
follow is saved after the Stored Procedure is run the first time.
So, on subsequent runnings of the Stored Procedure, the database
already knows what is the best plan to follow. This saves time and
delivers the query information faster as a result.
* Stored Procedures give you an opportunity to have a
centralized location to store your complicated queries, rather than
just in application code.
Where are your most complicated
queries for your applications? If they are in your application code,
they are buried under hundreds, or even thousands of lines of code.
If you want, or need, to optimize slow running queries, they're much
easier to get to within Stored Procedures, than buried in a pile of
* Stored Procedures give you the opportunity to utilize temp
When you have complicated data analysis to perform,
temp tables can come in handy. They do result in a performance hit,
but, when used at the right time and place, can greatly increased
your queries net speed. Basically, with temp queries, you can take
data from one, or many tables, and put it in a temporary tables.
Having done this, you can take this data and use it to do further
joins to other tables, or, do computations which might be needed
with the temp table data. The advantage of temp tables can come in
where you are working with large tables with many fields, where
there are just a relatively short number of fields you actually need
to work with. Given this scenario, for example, you could use a temp
table, extract the information you need, then, do your analysis on
this shorted group of information versus large tables, and large
There are a number of other advantages to using Stored Procedures, but,
the list above mentions, in detail, some of the main ones.
Having your databases turn out information at the fastest speed
possible can help save your
business time and money.
