Great article.
Can you tell what to do with the resultset of dbcc sqlperf(waitstats)
I saw that it is accumulative, so you have to take the up time into account.
But what is the unit of measurement and the difference between "wait time" and "signal wait time"?

Yes, joachim.verhagen, it is cumulative. The measurement is in milliseconds. The difference between Wait time and Signal Wait time is basically the difference in waiting on something and communicating about waiting on something, to put it in simple terms.

Hi all

Some things to remember..

a) measures physical io, not logical, flush buffers when testing
b) force checkpoints when testing writes to force log flush

before trying it all on prod

Cheers

I'm blown away by the responses to my article, and very much appreciate the comments posted, but does anyone know anything about the waits I didn't talk about. I would very much like to "fill in the gaps" so to speak. What I have is simply what I've garnered over the years, and to date, I have been unsuccessful in ever finding any real documentation on any of the ones not in BOL.
