SQL Server 2019 is still in preview as I write this, but I wanted to point out a new feature that Microsoft has added to SQL Server Setup, on the Windows version.
On the Database Engine Configuration screen are two new tabs, called MaxDOP and Memory. These are both new configuration options for SQL Server 2019. This post will specifically look at the MaxDOP tab, and we’ll look at Memorynext week.
I like that they’re adding these things to initial setup; that makes it easier for people to remember that yeah, MAXDOP is important.
