About question: Simulating memory pressure
You have been asked to optimize a stored procedure that runs against a terabyte-sized database. The stored procedure executes several steps consecutively. The performance problems appear to be mainly I/O related.
You install a severely trimmed down test version of the database (1 GB in size) on your desktop computer running SQL Server Developer Edition. Before you start optimizing, you want to establish a baseline by timing the stored procedure on your development machine, so that you can later compare performance after adding indexes and tweaking code.
However, your desktop has 2 GB of memory installed, and you are concerned that the performance test results may be skewed because the test version of the database fits entirely in cache. What is the best way to simulate the production circumstances as closely as possible?
I'm don't understand, someone prune my explicate? Thank you
that question is very hard for me!
