  • RE: ROWLOCK Escalation

    GilaMonster (3/19/2012)

    The RowLock (or pageLock) hints just say what the locks should start as, nothing more. In this case they'll start as row, but once past the 5000 or so...

    Now, my problem is the 55" LCD I need in order to monitor all of these important money-making databases... 😉

    Are you sure you don't need two? 😉

  • RE: Be Reasonabl

    Great editorial!

    Us IT-people (developers, sysadmins, support staff, etc) are usually at the mercy of some kind of manager and bureaucracy. And since managers are also humans, they can also be...

  • RE: That case filter

    murray-906152 (7/19/2011)
