When I presented at the SQLPASS this year there were several learning that I found it interesting. Every year, this presentation preparation is something I take it seriously. I know many them turn up to learn some new tricks every single year. Hence, I invest considerable amount of time to prepare. This year I showcased several tips and tricks involving SQL Server In-Memory OLTP capability. I personally feel this feature is lesser known and never appreciated. As I was doing the session, one of the DBA asked how to find out the memory utilization of various In-Memory OLTP tables.
I have been writing a lot of my findings with SQL Server 2016 in the recent past. This is also being something I have been investing big time keeping my session at SQLPASS coming in the October timeframe. I will be talking on a number of capabilities and enhancements around SQL Server 2016 from a performance standpoint that it is critical for me to explore some. I invest considerable time in preparation for any session and every single year going to SQLPASS has been the highlight and most of the time it is about hard work to make sure everyone attending my session gets the best of content. Also, it is a great way for me to do due diligence and homework as I prepare with real world problem statement with possible alternatives and solutions as part of my session. Let us learn about Creating Clustered ColumnStore with InMemory OLTP Tables.
I had recently received an email about InMemory OLTP Functionality in Email when I was having a vacation with my family in the Australia. Let us read the story about my vacation and SQL Server in this blog post.
My exploration with SQL Server 2016 features are just continuing and I am delighted every other day to figure out something new been added to the capabilities which in the opinion were of limited capacity in the prior versions of SQL Server. I will spare the ranting exercise for now but will look at some of the things that caught my attention in my recent exploration with SQL Server InMemory OLTP enhancements.
