Brad Shultz’s blog on reviewing your database

This is possibly the best blog I have every read on the subject of reviewing a database. It is witty, insightful, and mentions a number of very common problems. The descriptions of each problem are well written and easy to understand. There are multiple scripts and links throughout the post to help with both database maintenance and general review/troubleshooting.

Best of all it’s a quick read (if you don’t spend time carefully reading each script) and keeps your interest from start to finish. In short I HIGHLY recommend taking a few minutes and reading Brad Shultz’s “Shrink Your Databases Regularly”.

My name is Kenneth Fisher and I am Senior DBA for a large (multi-national) insurance company. I have been working with databases for over 20 years starting with Clarion and Foxpro. I’ve been working with SQL Server for 12 years but have only really started “studying” the subject for the last 3. I don’t have any real "specialities" but I enjoy trouble shooting and teaching. Thus far I’ve earned by MCITP Database Administrator 2008, MCTS Database Administrator 2005, and MCTS Database Developer 2008. I’m currently studying for my MCITP Database Developer 2008 and should start in on the 2012 exams next year. My blog is at www.sqlstudies.com.
