question: If I am optimizing performance of a few dozen of SPs that i identified via Profiler Trace as taking most time while being the ones most often executed,
and did certain things to improve performance for particularly those SPs. Created some indexes, modified some TSQL inside those SPS, etc.
Now, after I roll out those changes to Production, i will need to show that my improvements/optimization actually has done something, and the performance/metrics are now improved.
Is the best way to prove that changes brought about positive results is to also run Profiler Trace and note that the same SPs ave(duration) and READS have become smaller values? Or is there something else that is useful to
show that modifications (mainly a few dozen of new indexes) have worked and performance is improved? I am thinking what would be most useful to include into my report to management that will show improvement after this tuning/optimization.
