Introduction There are thousands of indicators (Perfmon Counters, system views, …) one can track to monitor SQL Server, but not all of them are relevant. If I need to pick one, that would be “Processes Blocked”.
Databases should be fast and simple to use. We make them so. Do not let your customers wait for a slow database response - hire a top professional! We are passionate about creating highly-tuned SQL Server systems. Do you want yours to become one? Simply call us or send email, and we will take care of the rest.
