The Database Tuning Advisor (DTA) that is part of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 is an automated physical database design tool that significantly advances the state-of-the-art in several ways. First, DTA is capable to providing an integrated physical design recommendation for horizontal partitioning, indexes, and materialized views. Second, unlike today's(More)
—Database developers today use data access APIs such as ADO.NET to execute SQL queries from their application. These applications often have security problems such as SQL injection vulnerabilities and performance problems such as poorly written SQL queries. However today's compilers have little or no understanding of data access APIs or DBMS, and hence the(More)
Sharing resources of a single database server among multiple tenants is common in multi-tenant Database-as-a-Service providers, such as Microsoft SQL Azure. Multi-tenancy enables cost reduction for the cloud service provider which it can pass on as savings to the tenants. However, resource sharing can adversely affect a tenant's performance due to other(More)
Multi-tenancy and resource sharing are essential to make a Database-as-a-Service (DaaS) cost-effective. However, one major consequence of resource sharing is that the performance of one tenant's workload can be significantly affected by the resource demands of co-located tenants. The lack of performance isolation in a shared environment can make DaaS less(More)
Relational database-as-a-service (DaaS) providers need to rely on multi-tenancy and resource sharing among tenants, since statically reserving resources for a tenant is not cost effective. A major consequence of resource sharing is that the performance of one tenant can be adversely affected by resource demands of other co-located tenants. One such resource(More)
Database Tuning Advisor (DTA) is a physical database design tool that is part of Microsoft's SQL Server 2005 relational database management system. Previously known as "Index Tuning Wizard" in SQL Server 7.0 and SQL Server 2000, DTA adds new functionality that is not available in other contemporary physical design tuning tools. Novel aspects of DTA that(More)
Relational database management systems (RDBMSs) today serve as the backend for many real-world data intensive applications. Database developers use data access APIs such as ADO.NET to execute SQL queries and access data. While modern program analysis and code profilers are extensively used during the software development life cycle, there is a significant(More)
,Q WRGD\ ¶V ZRUOGtools for profiling and tuning application code remain disconnected from the profiling and tuning tools for relational DBM Ss. This makes it challenging for developers of database applications to profile, tune and debug their applications, for example, identifying application code that causes deadlocks in the server. We have developed an(More)
