Simulating Network Latency

John Paul Cook shows how to use WANem to simulate network latency in a Hyper-V environment:

Access WANem from either SQL Server virtual machine using a case sensitive URL that includes WANem’s IP address. In this example, the URL is http://99.99.99.99/WANem. Inside the SQL Server virtual machines, I set the browser’s start page to the WANem home page. Create a delay of 1000 msec and retest SQL Server to SQL Server connectivity.

It looks like a good way of proving out whether your setup can handle extreme latency before you build it for real.

Why Increase Cost Threshold For Parallelism

Randolph West explains why the default value of cost threshold for parallelism is too low at 5: Unfortunately, the default setting of 5 means that queries are likely to hit that threshold more often than not on modern hardware, and the optimizer is forced to look at parallel plans unnecessarily. A side-effect to this is […]
