Handling IoT Traffic With SQL Server

Perry Skountrianos builds a reference architecture for handling nearly one and a half million rows per second with SQL Server:

The following sample demonstrates the high scale and performance of SQL Database, with the ability to insert 1.4 million rows per second by using a non-durable memory-optimized table to speed up data ingestion, while managing the In-Memory OLTP storage footprint by offloading historical data to a disk-based Columnstore table for real time analytics. One of the customers already leveraging Azure SQL Database for their entire IoT solution is Quorum International Inc., who was able to double their key database’s workload while lowering their DTU consumption by 70%.

If you hit on the right scenario, memory-optimized tables can be great.

You can encounter it in graphical execution plans in SSMS (and other tools), but if you look at the underlying XML of the execution plan, you will see that it is either an Index Scan or a Clustered Index Scan operator.

Memory-Optimized TempDB Metadata Tables

Ned Otter shows how to configure SQL Server to use memory-optimized metadata tables in TempDB: Like other changes to TempDB, in order for the new memory-optimization to take effect a restart of the SQL Server service is required. Once the service is restarted, system tables in TempDB are now memory-optimized (it should be that way […]
