​​​​​​​​​​​Free ​​SQL Server tools

I've done few useful tools for SQL Server that help me doing my work everyday. These tools are free to use for everyone but because of the nature of the "free lunch" I don't provide any guarantee nor take any responsibility of the side effects when using tools.

That said I'll still add that these tools are now downloaded more than 1000 times and I've never heard from anyone that they've had any issues with them.


When was DBCC CheckDB last succesfully ran? Is your database's data purity checked when you run CheckDB? Is your database updated from previous versions? sp_DBCCinfo answers these questions when you ran this. My normal procedure is to schedule this to be ran once a month and report the result to DBA team. It's a report that gives you confidence that there is no hidden corruption problems in your database. For detailed information please read my blog post about the tool.


PowerShell script that runs a set of batches with SQLio and puts the results to database. You can easily make reports of your Disk Storage performance with different SQL Server related workloads after you've uploaded the results to database. For detailed information please read my blog post about the tool.​


​​​​"Coffee break with Data Platform" ​​​

I'm starting bi-weekly Lync Online sessions that take place in the middle of workday for 15 minutes. I plan to give presentations on tuesday or wednesday at afternoon. That timing might change if attendees have better suggestions.

Lync session is planned to be so short that you can attend for that. It will be held only in Finnish and I'm very open for other presenters also as it might be quite heavy to have a subject every other week. Session is not about selling but learning so there is no company presentations, no feedback or registration required just fun with learning.

Subjects vary but are from the area of Microsoft Data Platform. All previous sessions can be found from Youtube channel at: http://qum.io/I_Z.
