    Dammit, I ticked Enterprise and clicked the submit button without thinking. I knew Developer was supported....... Having a bad couple of days :crying:

    I read to quickly, saw the word "only", clicked Enterprise pressed submit, then wanted to cancel as quickly as possible, but it was too late. Dev edition has the same lineup as Enterprise. Damn damn damn... 🙁

    Got it right, but there's apparently an edition missing...

    Evaluation Edition... granted I think that's Enterprise with an expiration, but still. 🙂

    For as long as I've had the luxury of using Developer Edition, I'm beginning to dislike it because of questions like this - that I got WRONG. It's not a production edition which sort of makes it a trick question.

    However I understand that its likely to show up on the 70-432 exam, so that makes this a good QotD.

    Thanks,

    I HAD to, just HAD to second-guess myself on Developer Edition. 😛

    Good question, though. It prompted to learn about resource governor AND Developer Edition. Two things in one day... time for a nap.

    Well, the question is incorrect, anyway - RG is also available in the Evaluation Edition. So that "only" without this version mentioned is IMO misleading.

    Not all that misleading though eh?

    Both explicitly state that it is Enterprise Edition that you are evaluating.

    SQL Server 2008 provides Resource Governor, a feature than you can use to manage SQL Server workload and system resource consumption. Resource Governor enables you to specify limits on the amount of CPU and memory that incoming application requests can us

    SQL Server 2008 introduces a new feature called Resource Governor which enables Database Administrators to manage SQL Server workload and critical system resource consumption. Resource Governor enables DBA to specify limits on the amount of CPU and memory which the incoming sessions to the SQL Server can use. In a production environment DBA's will come across scenarios when there could be sudden spike in CPU and memory utilization thereby resulting in slow responses to query requests. These issues happen when there is unpredicted workload execution like long running TSQL queries, database backups being performed etc. The solution to these issues is the use of Resource Governor which enables DBA's to differentiate workloads and allocate shared resources as they are requested, based on limits you specify for resources like CPU and memory. The resource governor limits can easily be reconfigured in real time with minimal impact on the workloads that are executing.

    Very uncool.

    Maybe, but the answer really is obvious (how can anyone get it wrong even by making an intelligent guess? After all, SQL2k8 is carefully packaged so that all major new features are in developer edition to get the developers hooked and in enterprise edition to ensure that those hooked developers genrate the maximum revenue for MS).

    What I really don't like about this question is the appalling carelessness: a question with no verb, and an explanation that says that SQL 2k8 is supplied only in developer and enterprise editions are serious defects compared to the trivial mistake of thinking that evaluation edition doesn't exist (evaluation is of course, like developer edition, intended to get us hooked on things that will make us buy enterprise edition; or am I just being cynical here?).

    The word "only" should ne removed. Otherwise, it sounds like..it is asking for only 1 answer, though we know you have provided check box not radio button.

    Thanks.
