I was catching up on my blog reading (unfortunately, in some cases I'm
a month behind) and came across a link to a new blog by Craig Freedman, a member of Microsoft's SQL Server team.
If you care about understanding how queries execute and, therefore, how
better to tune them, this is a blog that'll likely help though it's relatively new. Mr. Freedman indicated his reason
for starting the blog in his first blog post:
About two years ago I presented a talk to a couple of
SQL Server user groups where I explained in general terms how SQL
Server executes queries. I explained how to read showplan and how
some of the most common operators (such as index scans and seeks,
joins, and aggregation) actually work. I received a lot of
positive feedback from these talks and I’ve decided to try to capture
some of these topics in this blog. If you have questions or
comments, I’m very interested to hear what you think and what you’d
like me to write about and I’ll do my best to respond.
