Bramble Hub Marathon - Microsoft SQL Server Performance review

SQL Server and any associated databases are complex software and can quickly deteriorate in performance for many reasons such as inefficient code, SQL misconfiguration, network latency or I/O stalls. Without having an in-house DBA or database specialist, it can be almost impossible to identify the source of performance issues.


  • Checking basic performance measures for the server are on line
  • Checking databases are performing adequately with respect to I/O
  • Identify any badly performing queries
  • Checking Table and Row locking considerations
  • Checking index tuning and maintenance analysis
  • Checking Storage Configuration
  • Checking File placement analysis
  • Checking collation sequences


  • Highlights specific areas for development or remedial work
  • Identifies issues that may be disrupting performance
  • A document will be produced outlining short and long-term recommendations
