Track and analyse environment locking and deadlocks for any problem conditions.
Review of your most expensive queries by CPU and Disk IO for extended run times and indexing opportunities.
TSQL query analysis into how the SQL compiler is interpreting your transactions.
Review environment wait conditions to ensure there are not toxic waits impacting performance.

Established Performance Tuning Practices that Deliver Real Results!
Identify High Value
SQL Server’s Dynamic Management Views allow us to review internal query statistics in (near) realtime in order to identify indexing issues such as high-value missing indexes or over-indexing within the database.
Review of Expensive
We review your top most expensive transactions both from a CPU and IO load perspective, and make recommendations for improving the performance of these.
Using SQL Server’s extended events capabilities (or SQL profiler for older versions of SQL) we’re able to capture slow performing queries to find key problem areas within the environment’s transaction workloads.
SQL Query Execution
Analysis of a query’s execution plan also provides valuable insights into expensive joins, where conditions, nested loops and other factors which can impact performance.
Review of Deadlocks
and Locking Issues
Deadlocks and extended lock chains create major performance issues. While typically related to the race condition within the code, identification of these locks can help developers improve application logic to avoid these from occurring.
Review of top wait conditions can provide insights into external factors such as slow IO or even where applications are struggling to process data fast enough.
A comprehensive performance baseline which reviews a wide collection of hardware and SQL specific counters to help identify potential hardware based bottlenecks.
Tuning of SQL
Review of SQL Server configuration against industry best practice to ensure optimal configuration for OLTP vs OLAP transaction workloads.

While we love all things SQL Server, our real driving passion is about extreme performance tuning of SQL Server infrastructure. If you're suffering from slow SQL Servers, our experienced DBAs won't take long to work out why and how to fix it.
Let Us Help You Make Your SQL Server Fast
SQL Server’s decay curve has never been graceful. Whatever the bottleneck, things can very quickly escalate and render your SQL Server virtually unusable. Bottlenecks with disk, memory, CPU or incorrect indexing can quickly compound resulting in significant reductions in system performance, affecting application responsiveness and slow business intelligence decision making.
Troubleshooting and identification of underlying root causes for SQL performance problems requires an in-depth understanding of the SQL server environment, its supporting infrastructure, operational workloads and knowledge into how the SQL compiler interprets and processes these workloads.
SQL Server performance problems can often be fairly quickly identified and resolved, allowing your business to return to peak operational performance, and returning your staff back to peak productivity again.
Our database performance tuning service performs a thorough review of your SQL Server environment with a particular focus around key problem databases identified to us as part of the support service engagement. We’ll perform a detailed analysis of the problem through a review of SQL Server’s dynamic management views, looking at query execution paths of problem transactions to identify opportunities for index optimisation. We’ll also review your current index maintenance strategies to ensure these adhere to industry best practices.
We can also review your underlying hardware configuration through a 48 performance baseline, from which we can quantifiably identify whether there are any hardware based bottlenecks affecting your query performance and / or SQL Server’s operability in general. We have a proven track record of finding and resolving SQL performance issues, so there’s no further need to suffer at the hands of poor application performance. Our DBAs have the training and experience to get your SQL Server performing at it’s best again.
