One of the primary functions of the client is import-export of goods through the vessels & train. They have 24*7 business critical application running on almost 1TB SQL database and nearly 10 other SQL databases & applications running on SQL server platform. Applications running on these SQL server databases are accessed worldwide.

One of the major problems the client was facing is poor SQL server performance

The application was running slow due to fragmentation of indexes in the database

Also, there were no automated Full & Transaction log backups due to which log file was getting full at times leading to the unnecessary outage

They also could not afford downtime and they were in search of a solution to optimize the performance of the database/application and carry out the necessary on-going maintenance

The need of 24 x 7, proactive maintenance & DBA monitoring of SQL databases

Our Solution

Post engagement of SQL DBA services with the client, our team carried out routine Database Administration with a focus on uptime & compliance.

Performed extensive fragmentation check on the databases & tracked the fragmented indexes

Rebuilt the fragmented indexes & optimized the performance of the application

Initiated the process of performing a weekly SQL health check of all the SQL databases to find any loopholes/issues

To avoid the downtime scenario, our team started the process of Online Rebuilding fragmented indexes biweekly, based on the need of the situation

Configured Maintenance Plan for automatic scheduling of database backups to have a point-in-time recovery of the databases whenever required

Considering the criticality of 24*7 operational database, our team suggested Log Shipping of SQL database & configured it on client’s DR site for higher availability

To avoid any application outage, our team was capable of making secondary DB server as primary one in case of downtime

Performance Monitoring and Tuning using inbuilt tools

Isolated performance problems and identified bottlenecks along with troubleshooting of day to day SQL Server issues

Automated & scheduled SQL Server Agent Jobs for DBA tasks
