The Vermont Sql Server Special Interest Group was founded in April 2003 by a group of professional developers and DBAs to create a community for learning and sharing knowledge.

Our Group usually meets once every other month on Wednesday, in the Burlington area. We are a special interest group affiliated with the Vermont Dot Net User Group.

We would like to thank MyWebGrocer for their generous donation of meeting space!

SQL Server Database Maintenance Options and Guidelines

  • In-Person @ 20 Winooski Falls Way Winooski, Vermont, United States (map)
  • 18:00 - 19:30 Eastern Daylight Time
  • Language: English

 This session will discuss two options for setting up   database maintenance operations such as backups, integrity   check and index/statistics updates. First we will look at   the advantages and disadvantages of the built-in Database   Maintenance Plans, and discuss some tips around using them   effectively. In the second part we will look at an   alternative solution developed by Ola Hallengren that’s   becoming more and more popular among DBAs since it offers   a lot of flexibility and features not available in the   native maintenance plans. I will also offer some guidelines about setting up maintenance plans so they do not interfere with your production environment.
