I’ve always been a fan of the feeling when I find an old blog post that’s got just the information that I need to solve a problem or answer a question. It’s that whole “cha-ching” – buried treasure! feeling. That’s kind of the aim of this blog post. To provide a list of some posts that still have value that came out in previous years.
The posts for this past week in previous years are:
- This blog entry brought to you by the procedure “sp_MSForEachDB” (9 May, 2006)
- Disabling Export Options in Reporting Services (10 May, 2006)
- SQL Server 2008 R2 (11 May, 2009)
- Free SQL Server Training – Week May 2010 (13 May, 2010)
- Get Just The Tools: SSMS Download (15 May, 2013)

Find all you need to know about indexes in one book. Expert Performance Indexing for SQL Server 2012 is a deep dive into perhaps the single-most important facet of good performance: indexes, and how to best use them. The book begins in the shallow waters with explanations of the types of indexes and how they are stored in databases. Moving deeper into the topic, and further into the book, you will look at the statistics that are accumulated both by indexes and on indexes. All of this will help you progress towards properly achieving your database performance goals.
