02 May 2011 Meme Monday: I Got 99 SQL Problems And the Disk Ain't One
This time we are going to use the Hugo song “99 Problems” for our posts. The reason for this is because I keep replacing the word “disk” in the hook every time I hear that song. And that got me thinking: how many things can go wrong with a database server that are NOT related to a disk drive?
Now, I don’t expect you to each list out 99 things (although I bet we could). Instead let’s shoot for nine (9) problems that you frequently see in your shop which are not related to disk issues. Here’s mine:
- memory settings
- linked servers
- active directory
- EXECUTE AS
- view of views of views that use linked servers
- bad database design
- vendor code
Yours can match mine, just list the first nine things that come to mind and I bet we will find 99 distinct problems across all the Meme Monday posts.
Not that it is needed for Meme Monday but I am tagging a few folks:
Don’t wait to get tagged to write a post of your own for Meme Monday, just go do it!
