Somewhere your algebra 2 teacher is smiling......

I wonder what the performance difference would be if these operations were done in the CLR vs T-SQL:

a. In 2008
b. In 2008 R2
c. In 2012
d. In 2014

Would the difference be way less if the T-SQL operation was performed by natively compiled stored procedures accessing an in-memory table?

Algebra 2? Actually we covered these formulas in 2nd grade :-P. As for the performance difference, it is faster (at least 50% (taking in to account memory, processors, etc.) in the CLR because of the compiled code. But here is a really good article and test scenario comparing T-SQL UDF vs. SQLCLR UDF. While the article focuses on splitting strings, it applies for any UDF process. By the way, we use Idera for all of our database (scripts included) performance measurements.

http://blog.idera.com/sql-server/performance-and-monitoring/comparing-simple-efficiencies-t-sql-udf-vs-sqclr-udf-for-splitting-strings/


Just as an FYI, this was asked of me years ago for some students in the 3rd grade. Basically, all the formulas were in UDF's (so the code was "clean") and had a ASP.NET front-end. Other UDF formulas I added were Arithmetic Series Summing, Geometric Series Summing and Mathematical Series.

Anyway, I wanted to share an easy and fun QoTD.

To be honest, it's too much of calculation,
To me finding a geometric sequence with bare hands is not that much easier, when it reach over 10th term it's going to a night mare,
so i just find the answer for arithmetic and tick it straight away, if there are more than two same answers for the arithmetic mean i would surely get stuck, seems bit lucky today? i got the answer Right

As per the question, it was mentioned that "Developed and tested using SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2"; so why don`t we use the new features available from SQL Server 2008 onwards like follows:

declare @start float = 1,
@commonDiff float = 3,
@counter float = 0

print 'Begin';
while @counter < 200
begin
set @counter += 1
declare @currVal float = 0


Setting the Variable`s values in the same declaration is more efficient, easier, faster and it looks even better.
BTY; I tested it, got the same results.

a ) is missing in the line (at the end).

Then Ceiling((@start + (@commonDiff * (@counter -1))) * Power(10,1))/Power(10, 1


Otherwise a very nice example :-)

I'm most disappointed that there aren't already several pages of identical posts moaning about that and demanding that some points be given back ;-)

I confess to getting it right by the same method as thava used - check the easy bit and ignore the hard bit!

It is not about getting points back or focusing on wrong things.

It is a good, funny and very interesting example and why not make it better by fixing the code?
