A while back I wrote about the Perils of VSS Snaps.
After working with several more clients having similar issues, I decided it was time to look at things again. This time, I wanted blood. I wanted to simulate a slow VSS Snap and see what kind of waits stats I’d have to look out for.
Getting software and rigging stuff up to be slow would have been difficult.
Instead, we’re going to cheat and use some old DBCC commands.
This one almost got the “Wacky Ideas” tag but I’m grading on a curve for that category.
