Rest assured that I do not require any usernames, passwords, or sensitive information about your system. Our collaboration will take place via Zoom meetings, where you will retain complete control of your system. Every change we make, and any deployment to improve system performance will be guided by me, ensuring your understanding of each step. Your server remains under your control, and I will ensure that you are fully informed about all changes made and how to undo them.

With my experience of assisting over 400 customers, I have developed a unique method that allows you to learn performance-tuning concepts without relinquishing control of your system.

Will YOU Receive All the Scripts Used During the Service?

Certainly! You will receive every script utilized during the service.

Rest assured that I will not take control of your system. Instead, I will provide you with all the necessary scripts, which you will execute while we share the screen during our Zoom sessions. Together, we will review the results, and I will guide you through the steps required to address the diagnosed performance issues.

I have found that teaching my customers how to perform performance tuning tasks themselves, rather than doing it on their behalf, yields a maximum return on their investment. By empowering you with the knowledge and skills, you will have greater control over your system’s performance optimization.

What is the Duration of the Service?

The Comprehensive Database Performance Health Check typically takes a maximum of 4 hours. You may be wondering how we can improve performance within such a short timeframe.

100% Effort, Transparency, and Empowerment

Comprehensive Database Performance Health Check target

During our Comprehensive Database Performance Health Check, we will work together to uncover the underlying factors contributing to the slowness. Whether the problem lies within SQL Server or external factors, rest assured that we will pinpoint the exact cause and provide actionable solutions.

Transparency is a key principle of my service. Throughout the process, I will ensure 100% transparency by providing a detailed understanding of any performance issues discovered in your server. For each issue, I will present you with three options:

  1. Implement the recommended solution after thorough testing in a similar environment.
  2. Study the recommendation first and implement it at a later stage.
  3. Skip the recommendation and proceed to the next point of discussion.

The decision-making power rests entirely in your hands. While I offer scientific explanations and guidance, you retain complete control over your server. If, at any point, you wish to revert any changes made, you can easily do so.

My ultimate goal is to provide you with mentorship and guidance, enabling you to deepen your understanding of your system. This knowledge empowers you to tackle similar challenges independently in the future.

For any proposed changes, I strongly advise implementing them first in a development environment. Once you witness the positive impact, you can confidently apply the changes to your production system.
