Early Thoughts On SQL Server 2016

Koen Verbeeck has some initial thoughts on using 2016 in a POC:

  • AutoAdjustBufferSize property of the SSIS data flow. Done with manually setting the Buffer Size and Buffer Max Rows. Just set this property to true and the data flow takes care of its own performance.

  • Custom logging levels in the SSIS Catalog. Now I can finally define a logging level that only logs errors and warnings AND set it as the server-wide default level.

  • The DROP TABLE IF EXISTS syntax. The shorter the code, the better 🙂

I was initially a bit concerned with AutoAdjustBufferSize because I figured I could do a better job of selecting buffer size. ┬áMaybe on the margin I might be able to, but I think I’m going to give it a try.
