We will perform the work for this engagement remotely and schedule phone discussions with our US-based staff at the onset and conclusion. When we deliver our findings report by phone, we will review them with you in detail and jointly determine if there are items we identified that you would like us to review more deeply, or if you would like us to remediate any issue or assist in performing any of our recommendations.
CPU utilization hitting the roof? Are disk I/O levels rising? Do you think you need to buy faster hardware? Is your system slowing down because of blocking, timeouts or deadlocks? It only takes a short engagement with us and minor changes to achieve optimal SQL Server performance.
Very often it is simply that better indexes solve the largest performance problems with no application changes. System performance improves dramatically with the right mix of multi-column indexes. Complex queries run slow when the wrong query plans are used because of inaccurate optimizer estimates. Index improvements and minor T-SQL rewrites solve those problems. Application code problems cause slowdowns and timeouts: data type mismatches, server side cursors, long duration locks and SQL Server functions used the wrong way. Call our SQL Server Performance Tuning Experts for solutions to your performance problems.
