A Complete Manual with respect toReduced User Fee 2017 Form

Hey good afternoon everybody and welcome.along to DBA fundamentals down under for.the month of February.my name's Rory crowd and I'm your host.once again and for this month's session.we've got Glen Barry from sequel skills.talking to us about migrating to sequel.server 2017 now I'll hand over to Glen.very shortly I just do have a couple of.slides of housekeeping to run through.and then Glen will take us through the.rest of the session this afternoon so.first off I want to say a big thank you.and call out to our sponsors century one.without century one being here in.sponsoring us it would be difficult for.us to put on these sessions for you each.month if you're not already using.century ones tools make sure you go to.their website they have some fantastic.articles downloads videos ebooks etc to.assist you on your single server.learning to let you know this session is.being recorded and will be available on.the DBA fundamentals archive site in a.couple of days time after this we have.the slides from today will be available.as well as one of the scripts that Glen.will be taking you through throughout.the session feel free to ask any.questions I will be monitoring those and.I'll hand those over to Glen at the end.of the session make sure you stay.involved sign up for any of the other.virtual chapters around like this one or.at your local chapters sequel Saturday.events and of course pass summit towards.the end of the year so with that I'll.hand over to Glen and we'll get this.this afternoon session running all right.thanks a lot and thanks for everybody.who showed up to listen to this so let's.see if we can get PowerPoint running.here come on so anyways I'm Glen berry.and I work for sequel skills calm and.for some reason PowerPoint is being.uncooperative at the moment so that's.not good.great.just bear with us everybody while we.sort out the issue with PowerPoint we.should be on very shortly.so I've got some questions whether we're.speaking can everybody just confirm that.they can hear me at the moment just.shoot through a question or an answer.for me please okay thank you just bear.with us while we sort out the technical.issue with PowerPoint and then we should.be able to get the session going.do I have any good stories what sort of.stories would you like to tell.can you hear me we can all right I don't.know what happened there my computer.crashed so sorry about that so see we.can actually get started this time okay.all right my name is Glenn Barry and I.work for sequel skills comm and after.that long delay they were gonna go ahead.and get started here so can you see my.screen the PowerPoint and let me see if.it has frozen this end let me just take.the presents the screen back and then.I'll give it back to you and hopefully.that will refresh it okay okay and.giving it back to you all right can you.see that yes can see your slide deck.okay all right here we go all right this.is migrating to sequel server 2017 I'm.Glenn Barry I work as a principal.consultant for sequel skills comm and.there's a little bit about me the main.thing to keep in mind here is that my.email is Glenn at sequel skills comm if.you have any questions that I don't.answer please send me an email and I'll.definitely get back to you and this is a.little bit about me I like to brew beer.and I have a three vessel stainless.steel system that I use and make five.gallon batches and then there's a little.bit of some of the beer that I brewed.recently so getting to the business part.of this what we want to talk about is.the agenda for this session and so first.is making the case for an upgrade and.then some important upgrade planning.steps and we'll talk just a little bit.about hardware for sequel server and how.you choose your hardware to minimize.your license costs and we'll talk about.some different migration method you can.use and finally some post migration.tasks so the first thing you want to do.is make the case for an upgrade because.I've never had anybody come up to me in.my career and say hey Glenn would you.like to upgrade.to the next version a sequel server no.usually as the DBA you've got to go and.make that case and so you've got to.gather all the evidence and make the.argument to convince your business to.make the move and so some of the things.you can do is finding out things like is.your version of sequel server still.supported by Microsoft a lot of versions.including sequel server 2012 have.dropped out of mainstream support and it.may even be out of extended support and.if that's the case you might be able to.get premium insurance but you might not.be able to another thing to think about.is whether your operating system is out.of support or not and also is your.hardware or storage out of warranty or.is it just really old and slow some key.reasons to try to upgrade to sequel.server 2017 there's been a lot of useful.new features that have been added since.older versions that you might be running.on right now and there's a lot of new.things that are in standard editions.since sequel server 2016 sp1 that used.to be enterprise only that are actually.really useful and a couple new features.in sequel server 2017 that are extremely.useful or automatic plan correction.which builds on top of query store and.adaptive query processing which gives.you better query plans in some cases and.you got before and these all came from.Azure and they've gone into the.on-premise product.you also get higher license limits for.standard edition than you did on older.versions of sequel server and you can.take advantage of some of the new.hardware and storage things that are.available when you're running on sequel.Server 2016 or newer and again the.legacy version of sequel server you're.running might be out of support plus.you've got a lot of manageability.enhancements in the latest version.compared to old versions of sequel.server so these are some of the key.arguments you can try to use to make the.case for an upgrade now I've got a bunch.of links here and again you're going to.get this deck that's going to talk about.some of the most important things that.are new in sequel Server 2016 and 2017.so a lot of good links here I don't have.time to go through all the new features.and this is a useful slide because it.shows.you win sequel server falls out of.support for the different versions going.all the way back to sequel server 2005.so 2005 is out of mainstream support and.extended support and there's not even.going to be a patch for the meltdown.Spectre bug for 2005 in 2008 and 2008 r2.are also both out of support but they.have been patched for that security.issue and then sequel Server 2012 is out.of mainstream support but not extended.and then you can see the dates going out.and one thing that may take a lot of.people by surprise is 2014 only has.about a year and a half of support left.before it goes out of mainstream support.so a lot of people are probably running.on versions of sequel server that are.out of support from Microsoft and what.that means is there's no more service.packs no more cumulative updates only.security fixes once it falls out of.support so here's the same chart for.Windows Server and depending on how old.your version of Windows server is you.may be out of support there or coming up.and another one that's going to surprise.some people is Windows Server 2012 and.2012 r2 are falling out of support in.about six months so that's coming up.fairly soon and 2016 has quite a while.to go and as you're going through this.process you want to take the time to do.proper upgrade planning and don't just.leave this to your system admin and your.network admin you want to be involved as.the DBA and so some things you want to.think about doing as you're going.through this process is finding anything.that's going to be an upgrade blocker or.prevent you from actually upgrading to.2017 and in some cases it's a problem.with in-house code the way it's been.written or maybe you're using.third-party applications that aren't.certified for sequel server or a certain.version and Microsoft's notorious for.that.for example Dynamics GP won't run on.some newer versions of sequel server.depending on what version of dynamics.you have so investigating that can be.really important you know from the.beginning and then you've got to make.sure you understand the.licensing differences between the.versions and editions of sequel server.and understanding the feature.differences between the versions and.editions of sequel server and if you.know for example because of budget.pressure that you're going to be stuck.on standard edition instead of.Enterprise Edition that's going to.affect a lot of what you decide to do in.terms of your architecture and what.hardware you end up picking and whether.you get too big of a box for standard.edition and so you know that ties in to.picking your hardware and storage based.again whether you're gonna be on.standard edition or Enterprise Edition.and then one thing that's super.important that I hope you take out of.this talk is you want to pick the.hardware to minimize your sequel server.licensing cost because if you're not.careful about this and you just let.somebody else do it who doesn't.understand how this works you can spend.a huge amount of money on licenses far.outweighing your hardware and in some.cases even your storage costs just on.your sequel server licenses and then you.want to think about how you're gonna do.your final migration to reduce your.downtime during that final production.migration so here's how much equals.Server 2017 costs and there is no price.increase over 2016 and in most cases.you're going to be doing core base.licensing if you're going to use.standard edition you do have the option.of a server license plus cows you can't.do that for Enterprise Edition so you.can see that these core licenses are.pretty expensive for Enterprise Edition.although not nearly as expensive as.Oracle and so you need to think about.what you're doing when you're picking.out your hardware so you don't end with.spending a huge amount of extra money.that you don't need to and you have a.minimum of four core licenses per.physical processor or per VM unless you.decide to license the entire host for.virtualization purposes so sequel server.2017 has license limits tied to what OS.it's running on and whether or not.you're running Enterprise Edition or.standard edition so if you are running.sequel server 2017 Enterprise Edition.you can use up to 24 terabytes of RAM on.Windows Server 2016 which is a lot you.know there's very little commodity.hardware that will support that much but.that was a big jump over what you could.do on Windows Server 2012 r2 which is.only four terabytes and then you can use.as many sockets and as many cores as you.can get your hands on for Enterprise.Edition but the story is very different.for Standard Edition and this is very.frustrating to me because these limits.really haven't changed that much in fact.they haven't changed at all over sequel.Server 2016 and standard edition only.supports 128 gigs of ram for the.database engine per instance and then.you're limited to the lesser of four.sockets or 24 physical cores and I've.had a lot of my customers run into that.issue sort of accidentally where they.install standard Edition on a bigger.machine than that and then they find out.that it's only using a small portion of.their hardware and that can be an issue.you don't want to run into so Windows.Server 2016 has some licensing changes.you need to think about it also uses.core based licensing and luckily it's a.much less expensive but the way it's set.up is that they require you to buy a.minimum of eight core licenses per.processor or 16 for the server whichever.is higher as a bare minimum and so this.sometimes drives your system admin or.people who are picking the hardware into.picking a machine that has more cores.than you actually need for sequel server.so they get their money's worth from.their Windows Server licenses and that's.sort of backwards thinking because.standard edition of Windows Server 2016.only costs eight hundred eighty two.dollars for sixteen core licenses and.that's just nothing compared to the.sequel server license costs so you want.to make sure that somebody's not picking.a bigger machine than you need just.because of this you know sequel server.should be driving it not Windows Server.when it comes to picking how many cores.you need.all right so the importance of database.hardware and normally when I do this.session it's either a half day or a full.day so I would spend a lot of time.probably more than you want to hear.talking about hardware where you're.going to get a very abbreviated version.here but database servers are.mission-critical people tend to notice.when there's problems with performance.or scalability and I can't tell you how.many times I've heard you know what's.wrong with the database why is the.server so slow and it's always guilty.until proven innocent and if somebody.makes a poor choice on your hardware.whether it's bare metal or a.virtualization host you're gonna be.stuck living with that for the lifetime.of that server and it can be really.difficult to compensate for that if.somebody's made a really poor Hardware.choice so things like single-threaded.cpu performance if you don't have any.memory or i/o bottlenecks that's your.ultimate bottleneck for how fast a query.comes back if you don't have enough.memory that's gonna cause extra i/o.pressure and unfortunately memory prices.have been going up quite a bit over the.last 12 to 18 months and then not having.an F IO performance can be a huge.bottleneck that I see a lot in real life.and if you know what you're doing which.you're gonna know somewhat after this.session you can save so much on your.sequel server license costs that your.hardware is free and that's not an.exaggeration and you really need to pay.attention to this so you know make a.huge expensive mistake so right now the.latest and greatest Intel processor line.is called Xeon scalable processor family.and their code name is skylake sp and.this chart right here in this slide this.is a super valuable chart this one in.the next slide and this shows different.processor models they've changed their.naming so instead of like a five and a.seven like we had in previous.generations they have names like gold.and bronze and platinum and then a model.number and this is showing different.specific processor skew.at given core counts and this list is.the list of the best processor at each.given core count so at the very bottom.it's a gold 5122 with four cores and.then some statistics including the cost.of the processor so you can go up six.cores eight cores 12 cores and so on.till you get to the top of the line 28.core and for most sequel server.applications the 28 core processor is.not a good choice because you're gonna.pay a huge amount for your sequel server.licenses and typically you want to try.to pick one with a lower core count and.so the reason I put this chart together.is that for every core count like four.six or eight cores there's typically two.or three or four different skews and.that family and of all the ones that are.available these ones in this list are.the best ones for sequel server so if.you or your sis Atman or your hosting.provider wants to have a different.processor that's not on their list on.this list you're doing it wrong because.you're not picking the best one at a.given core count and so this next slide.is even more useful enlist the same.processors but it shows the raw capacity.of the system and then the score per.cores the second from the right column.and so the raw score and this is based.on some proprietary calculations I've.done based on TPC II OLTP benchmark.scores but the raw TPC score is the.capacity of the system from CPU.perspective and then the score per core.is showing you the single-threaded.performance of that processor and then.the final column on the right is how.much your sequel server licenses would.cost for a to socket system with this.processor so what's happening here is.that the ones that are in green towards.the bottom of the chart are really good.choices for super high single-threaded.performance and then the one in red.the second one from the top is a really.terrible choice for example but these.are both money slides because this helps.you pick a good processor to minimize.your sequel server license costs and.make sure you have enough capacity and.performance for your workload so moving.on here's an extreme example of a really.bad CPU choice which is a much better.CPU choice so imagine you're gonna go.out and buy a brand-new two socket.server and your sis admin without.talking to you goes out and decide.suspect out the server and decide what.they're gonna buy so they decide to get.to eight core processors and they decide.to pick the xeon bronze 3106 because.that's the least expensive one with.eight cores and so if they did that they.would end up spending a hundred and.fourteen thousand dollars on the sequel.server licenses and there their capacity.that TPC ii score would only be six.hundred and forty and their score for.physical cores there's single threaded.performance I would only be forty and.that's pretty bad and so what you could.do instead if you knew what you were.doing is you get that same two socket.server and only get one processor in it.it happens to be a six core instead of.eight core but it runs at a much much.faster clock speed it has turbo boost it.has hyper-threading has a bigger l3.cache and so it performs much much.better so one six core processor versus.two eight core processors and you.actually get more capacity and nearly.four times better single threaded.performance and less than half the.sequel server license costs so this is a.very extreme example but this shows the.kind of mistake that somebody can make.you know well-meaning person who just.doesn't understand how this works could.make so hopefully you will not make that.sound kind of mistake.all right so the Intel Xeon processor.family these links show you these link.to documents that have the.four to five pages each and so depending.on how old your current hardware is you.can go back in time and find out about.it and then go through the successive.newer generations to find out what.things have changed what things have.improved and in many cases.virtualization performance improves as.you go from older hardware to newer.hardware and so these have all sorts of.details that are really useful when.you're trying to make the case said hey.we're running on six year old Sandy.Bridge processors 'if I've 2600 and if.we move to the latest generation here's.all the new things we would get that.would help us because we're virtualized.for example that's what those documents.are useful for all right so after the.hardware which I said was to be.abbreviated then you started thinking.about okay what can I do to get my.legacy sequel server instance ready to.migrate and so the first thing you want.to try to do is make sure that that.legacy instance is on a supported.service pack and see you of whatever.version of sequel server you're running.and ideally it's on the latest and.greatest service pack and see you but.there's certain minimum levels that are.required depending on what you're going.to do for migration so for example if.you're going to do something like.database marrying from your old version.to the new version you need to be on a.certain level of sequel server so I've.got that listed here so for example on.sequel Server 2012 you need to be on.service pack 2 it's a bare minimum and.if you're on older versions like sequel.Server 2008 r2 or sequel Server 2008 you.can see the service pack levels that are.required there and then after that you.want to go through and just sort of do.some housecleaning on your legacy.instance and try to clean up things you.don't need any more like logins agent.jobs that are disabled that you don't.actually need any links servers you.don't need you know things like like.that to get the instance ready for.migration.then you want to go and get the legacy.databases ready for migration and what.you're trying to do here is make each of.your databases smaller so they're easier.to migrate and so this is just a good.time to do things you've been putting.off to clean up these databases so if.you've got scratch tables full of copies.of other tables that you use temporarily.and never cleaned up try to get rid of.those and talk to the business about hey.we've got 10 years worth of data in this.table do we really need that anymore and.a lot of times they'll come back and say.oh no we don't need all that you can get.rid of all of it or just some of it and.so maybe you can delete it or maybe you.can archive it and move it to a.different table or a different database.you also want to look really hard for.unused and duplicate indexes and take.the time to do a little bit of index.maintenance and then after you've done.all this you may have a lot of space in.your data files and if you have done.things that has gotten rid of data.that's not gonna come back.you know you might consider the.sacrilegious step of shrinking your data.file you know it's a one-time thing and.of course if you do that when you want.to go back in and do some index.maintenance to get rid of the.fragmentation that's shrinking a data.file causes and then you definitely want.to go in and reduce your VLF counts your.virtual log file counts and then shrink.your transaction log file as part of.that and if you have any extra.transaction log files that got put in.during an emergency get rid of them you.only need one then finally run dbcc.check DB before you get ready to do a.migration if you find any kind of issues.with corruption try to correct those.before you move forward with the.migration all right there's a tool that.you may not have heard of called the.Microsoft data migration assistant and.they just put out a new version about a.week ago actually but what this is.really useful for is you can point this.at your legacy databases and it'll go.through and look for issues that might.cause a problem you upgrade to a newer.version of sequel server.and you can go all the way back to.sequel Server 2005 for legacy and then.go all the way to sequel server 2017 or.as your sequel database as a destination.so you can run this and it's a pretty.quick scan and it'll come back with a.list of problems and there also will.come back with a list of possible ways.you can leverage new features in the.latest version of sequel server of.course you have to be aware that they're.heavily biased towards Azure sequel.database features they really Microsoft.really really want you to move.everything to Azure sequel database so.they'll point out things that you could.do better in as your sequel database and.you can use this to find issues and you.can also use it to move just your schema.or your schema and your data if you want.to although I actually think there's.better ways of moving your data so the.tool has two different purposes so the.next thing I want to talk about is one.thing you're gonna have to do is moving.from an old version of sequel server to.sequel server 2017 is moving all your.data and there's various ways of doing.that we'll get to in a few minutes here.but one of the things that's going to.come into play on almost all of these is.how quickly can you do a full database.backup and a full database restore so.sequel server has had native backup.compression ever since sequel Server.2008 an Enterprise Edition and then they.added a standard edition in 2008 r2 and.usually native backup compression gives.you a very noticeable improvement and.how long it takes to do a backup and.restore and it makes your backup files.smaller and puts less stress on your i/o.subsystem and another you can look into.is in what's called a striped backup so.instead of just running your backup to a.single backup file you have multiple.files and if you have the option of.running these multiple files to.different LUNs that have different.physical storage behind them you can.sometimes get a huge increase in.performance and how long it takes to do.a backup and then a restore and then.another thing that a lot of.the more junior DBAs may have never.heard of is you have some database.backup tuning options that you can use.so you have buffer counts and max.transfer size and block size that you.can use this option is your backup.command that can make backups go a lot.faster and even sometimes help with.restores but usually it helps more in.the backup side and then another thing.you want to do always as you're going.through this situation is backup to a.null device to make sure you can figure.out how quickly you can read from your.data files and log file so you can find.out how quick you could theoretically.ever do a backup and then you want to.try backups to different locations to.see how quickly you can rights where.those backup files are going so for.example it might be quicker to backup to.local storage and then copy the backup.file or it might be quicker to backup.directly to remote file share it just.depends on your infrastructure so we.actually have a demo to talk about some.of this stuff all right so what we got.going here is I have about a seven.gigabyte database I took adventureworks.2014 and made it a little bit bigger.than it normally was so then what we're.going to do is just see how big is this.database you know it's in a single data.file it's about eight gigabytes in size.there's a little bit it's closer to.seven actually there's about seven.hundred Meg's of free space and the log.files not that big so here's the first.thing here's how you back up to an old.advice so which is backup database to.disk equals null and then what I'm going.to do in this case is not use backup.compression so we're just gonna read as.quickly as we can from that data file.and if I go to the messages tab you can.see it's fly-in and so it did it in.about seventeen hundred megabytes per.second and I'm just gonna run that again.and see if it's faster since I just had.to reboot machine a few minutes ago and.then we'll see what happened here so if.we go to the bottom you know it did.about 2,200.megabytes per second so that's about as.fast as we can actually get this to go.and so the next thing I'm going to try.is running this back up to a single file.destination so I'm gonna run it to my L.drive and my database lives on my C.Drive on this workstation so we're gonna.do this and we go here you know it's not.nearly as quick since we're having the.overhead of actually writing the backup.files that are just throwing away to an.old device so it's almost done here and.this is gonna be the slowest backup we.run and so that's not super impressive.there if we ran it again it would.probably be a little bit quicker since.its cache and memory and the next thing.we're going to try is a striped backup.to two different drives so I have an R.Drive and a V Drive that are both really.fast m dot two SSDs that I have in my.workstation here so when I run this this.is going to go through and be noticeably.faster and when this finishes up we'll.see what the statistics are the idea.here is don't just do your normal backup.go in and run a few tests here and.that's actually not super fast but it is.faster than we did before.so 650 megabytes per second so right.next I'm gonna try is running that same.stripe back up to the same two drives.but now we're gonna try using these.options right here so buffer count 2200.block size 64 K max transfer size 2.megabytes and we'll try that and see if.that makes any difference here and.you've got to play with these numbers.this is gonna vary based on your storage.in your data and that's going to quite a.bit faster so up to 1794 megabytes per.second so on that was with backup.compression right here so just for as an.experiment let's try running that same.backup without backup compression so.we'll say no compression and see if it's.faster or not and that seems like it's.pretty fast.give it a couple seconds so is actually.a little bit slower in this case so.again try experiments like this with.your larger databases until you get it.figured out okay this is a very fastest.way that I can backup this database with.my hardware and infrastructure and then.after all this here's a query that you.can run just to see how long these.things have been taking so if we run.this my mouse will cooperate then what.we'll get is a history of our most.recent full backups and you can see the.elapsed time and whether or not we were.using backup compression and where it.was going to so this is just sort of a.handy set of queries that you can use to.figure this out all right so going back.here what we're going to do is go back.to where we were and then move along so.the major migration steps that you want.to go through are your architectural.planning where you're deciding are you.gonna go physical or virtual and that.may be out of your hands and then you're.gonna go through and pick your hardware.and storage to get the most performance.and scalability for the least license.cost and then you go through ideally and.build and patch and configure your new.environment and you can take as long as.you need to to do this if you're doing.this properly and you want to make sure.you've got a set of scripts that you use.and and a checklist so that you're.making sure that all your new servers.are set up identically and they're all.set up correctly and you're not missing.any important steps and I've done.several Pluralsight courses where I.talked about some of the important.things you want to think about and make.sure you don't miss and then you want to.go through and actually do some.performance testing in your new.environment to make sure everything's.set up correctly it's performing like.you expect it to do now after you've.done that then you go and get some.backups of your current production.environment and just restore them using.any method you want in the new.environment and that's when you can go.in.and use data migration assistant and.another tool called database.experimentation assistant which is.basically distributed replay on steroids.and it's a tool that lets you capture a.live production workload and then replay.that workload in your new environment on.your new version of sequel server and.see if it's going to perform as you.expect and whether or not you're going.to get any big performance regressions.from things like the new cardinality.estimator and then you also we're going.to go through you and your organization.and do any manual and/or automated.testing that you have available just to.make sure that everything works from a.functional point of view and that you're.not going to have any surprises when you.go live and this whole part of it can.take weeks or even months in some cases.and then finally you're ready to do your.final production migration and there's.several different ways of doing that but.my favorite is log shipping and then.after you do your final failover there's.some tasks you need to do on in the new.environment after you've failed over.from the old version of sequel server to.the new version of sequel server so.production migration methods that are.available.you've got upgrade in place which is.really a bad idea even though it's fully.supported you can attach and detach your.databases which is also a bad idea but.people will sometimes do it because they.have no other choice.a much safer method its backup and.restore of all your databases and then.you can use the Microsoft database.migration assistant to actually migrate.your data but then the the better ways.of doing it in my opinion are using log.shipping or using database mirroring and.then we'll talk about the post migration.tasks so upgrade in place if you do that.you don't have to worry about migration.because all you're doing is running.setup on your existing sequel server.instance on your existing hardware so.the data is not going anywhere.but there's a lot more risk here and.there's definitely gonna be some down.time because the time it takes to run.the setup program plus you're probably.going to have to at least reboot the OS.after you install the new version.sequel server on top of the old one and.again this is fully supported by.Microsoft but there's just a lot of.downsides and some of the key downsides.is that you don't really have any.opportunity to properly test your new.environment because all you're doing is.running setup and praying that it works.and doing this encourages your.organization to reuse your old hardware.and storage which might be a quite a bit.slower than we can currently get it also.encourages you to stay on your current.version of Windows Server and it's just.a lot more stressful for you and the.organization you're just hoping that.everything works and if it doesn't work.you're gonna have a long weekend trying.to recover in most cases but in there's.some cases where this is the only.solution because you just don't have the.budget or the infrastructure to do it.some other better way and if that's the.case you want to make sure that the.business is fully aware of all the risks.and downside and try to talk them out of.it don't just go along without a fight.so the next method is detached and.attach all your databases in each.instance and then move them and if.you're gonna do this make sure you're.logged in is sa rather than as your own.windows login for example so you don't.have any file for mission issues and.then you're gonna have to copy the files.of the new location probably on the new.server and the downtime is gonna be.proportional to how big all these.database files are and how quick your.network is and then you attach your.databases to the new instance and.there's a tiny risk that the attached.operation will fail it's very rare but.it can happen and you want to make sure.you use T sequel for the attached and.have it all scripted out instead of.trying to navigate through the.management studio GUI to do this and.again there's much safer and much faster.ways to migrate and so I always try to.avoid attach detach all right back up.restore this is the absolute safest.method for migration it's a lot less.risky than attach detach depending how.you do this there could be a long outage.if you're smart about it you know you.can do a full backup restore and then a.differential backup restore and log.backup restores and get it so that your.downtime can be pretty short not as.short as log shipping or database.mirroring but still fairly short and.again you want to go through and make.sure you do the work to prepare your.legacy databases to reduce their backup.restore times so getting rid of the.unneeded data and your index.fragmentation and shrinking your.transaction log so it doesn't have to be.zeroed out during the restore lots of.little tricks you can do to shorten this.window all right log shipping this is my.favorite and with log shipping it's.really easy to configure it doesn't.require that you're on a domain or on.the same domain it doesn't require.certificates or endpoints like database.mirroring it doesn't put any extra load.on your old instance because you're.running log backups anyways when you're.in full recovery model and then you can.have a pretty short failover because all.you have to do is run your jobs for long.shipping to do your final log backups.and then copy the backup files and.restore them and then we're storage.database with the recovery and point all.the applications of the new instance and.you can write T sequel scripts ahead of.time so that you can just run a couple.scripts on each server and wait a minute.or two and in most cases you'll be up on.the new server if you planned everything.out and rehearsed it ahead of time it's.very easy and smooth now database.mirroring is a little bit more.complicated to setup than log shipping.and you want to make sure if you're.gonna use database mirroring to migrate.that you don't use a witness during the.migration because you don't want any.possibility of an unplanned failover and.you go and do all the work of creating.the mirrored copy ahead of time and your.users and applications have no idea that.you're doing all this work and once you.get mirroring set up then you can run.that way for as long as you need to.until it's time do the final failover.and then you do that final failover and.it's just a one-way one-time trip and.you failover.from the old version to the new version.and then you go ahead and remove the.mirroring session and this can just be a.few seconds for each database so it's.even quicker than mod shipping but it is.a little bit more work to set up and it.does place a little bit more load on.your legacy server and if you're running.Enterprise Edition you want to take.advantage of asynchronous mirroring so.it's less of a load until just before.the failover and you switch briefly to.synchronous and then you do your.failover so post migration tasks that.you want to take care of things you want.to do you want to run a full database.backup on the new instance of all your.user and system databases as soon as.possible and then you want to run dbcc.check DB on all your user and system.databases and then you want to run.updates at istic s-- and just start off.with SP update stats at first and then.you can go through and do update.statistics with full scan on some of.your key tables and there's a new option.in sequel Server 2016 that lets you set.the scan rate and persist it so you can.do it at a hundred percent for key.tables and then it'll remember that when.you run SP update stats or any other.kind of update statistics operation so.it's a really nice feature another thing.you want to make sure to do and I've.been running to a lot of customers.lately that have not done this but go in.and enable query store on your user.database is once you migrate so then you.go start collecting some performance.baselines and it'll help you spot if you.have any performance regressions and you.can go in and freeze a good plan using.query store it's a very nice feature.that a lot of people just seem to be.afraid of or not be using and then based.on the testing you did before you.migrated you probably want to go in and.change your compatibility level to the.latest compatibility level but you need.to be aware that's going to force it by.default use a new cardinality estimator.which sometimes causes big performance.problems but you should know this from.your previous testing where that's going.to be an issue for you or not.and then essentially give me on sequel.server 2017 hopefully you want to turn.on the automatic plan choice correction.feature for each database and that way.it uses query stored a spa when you have.planned regressions it'll automatically.go back to the last known good plan and.helps you avoid issues with parameter.sniffing and bad statistics that get a.bad plan in the cache and suddenly.performance gets a lot worse for no.apparent reason and then you just want.to start monitoring how well the.instance is running after you migrate so.I've got a bunch of additional resources.that you can look up to find out more.about this so I did a whole blog series.in August 2017 where I did a blog post.every day talking about different.upgrade and migration subjects and then.I have a number of Pluralsight courses.so upgrading and migrating to 2016.installing and configuring 2016 and then.a whole course on configuring and.troubleshooting log shipping and then.sequel skills has an in-person class we.teach on upgrading sequel server it's a.three day class in the United States so.that's pretty much the end of the.session so if we have any questions I.have some time to take them now okay so.as Glen said if you've got any and throw.them through now but Glen if we go back.to slide around licensing.confirmation around the cost of an.enterprise system running 2017 using.four cause okay I think it was probably.right here.well let me go back this one okay this.is a socket system it's not four cores.it's you know two sockets with a four.core processor each so this is a total.licensed cores so yeah even thousand so.maybe that's where the confusion is.coming from okay so I think I think if.you get back a couple of slides where.you went what the cost was from a her.core point of view and so the questions.just confirming that would an enterprise.2017 system running for cords would that.cost twenty eight thousand okay yeah I.think I had a slide that actually had.the license cost per core right here.yeah that's correct if you if you have.four cores you have to license then it's.gonna cost twenty eight thousand okay so.I've got another one is there any link.which can help me out to find the risks.to mitigate or to migrate from sequel.server 2016 2 2016 Service Pack 1 not.that I can think of I mean one of the.links that I had in here was talking.about all the new features that they.introduced right here in sequel server.2016 those top two links you know it.just runs faster and know your limits.and then actually the top three links.all these talked about the new features.and I don't off the top of my head I.can't think of too many risks I mean.most of what they introduced in Service.Pack 1 was what they called.programmability features so things that.you could only do previously an.Enterprise Edition that you can do in.standard edition now but it wasn't like.they were new features they were just.bringing down to the standard edition.SKU and you know anything.to be careful about there is that in.some cases they put limits on the.functionality for standard addition so.you can only use a certain number of.cores or a certain amount of memory to.run that feature so that's the only.thing I can think of from a risk.perspective okay I can answer this one.yes the slides and the scripts will be.available on the DBA fundamentals.archive site and they will be available.in a couple of days time so you will be.able to go back.re-watch this recording as well as.download the slides if we go to the next.one.okay what is the best way to evaluate.storage performance well there's several.different ways of doing it one thing I.always like to do is run some synthetic.benchmarks that are just quick and easy.to run so the first one it's called.crystal disk mark and it uses Microsoft.disk speed under the covers and it lets.you test each one of your lungs just in.a few minutes to get an idea if it's.sequential performance and it's random.performance with different cued apps and.different thread counts so that's a very.first thing I want to do and then I.might go in and run disc speed which you.know you can run from PowerShell or.command prompt and you have a lot more.flexibility about what it does and it.also gives you latency information so.that's the first thing I like to do and.then the second thing I like to do is do.some real-world testing so I'll do.something like take a great big database.and find out how quickly I can run a.backup or how quickly I can restore or.how quickly I can build a big index.another thing I do is I'll do something.like flush the buffer cache you know in.a test environment and then purposely.run a select query that forces you to.read an entire table into memory to find.out your real-world sequential.performance so you know a few tests like.that will give you a pretty good idea.how well your stores perform.you know after you've selected it and.configured it so okay I'll this next.question it's a bit of the longer one so.I'll try and break it up got concerns.about migrating older databases that use.different collations ie Unicode is.almost updated yearly does the migration.wizard take this into account well the.data migration assistant.I believe looks for some issues along.that line but for collation question.like that really that you're probably if.you're gonna run on any issues because.of that I think you would hopefully.catch that during your testing in your.new environment so I mean there's some.tools and the migration assistant I.think will catch some of that but I.wouldn't feel completely confident until.I'd done a full round of functional.testing in the new environment to see if.a collation issue is causing a problem.or not.and of course meaning United States I'm.kind of spoiled because usually we just.use the default collation that comes you.know from sequel server but I understand.that's a bigger issue in other parts of.the world and would you think that a.Greenfield data migration might be.better than a traditional migration so.I'm assuming ie backup and restore well.it doesn't really make any difference um.because you know a backup restore you're.taking a backup of the legacy and.restoring it in a new environment and as.part of that it gets upgraded to the new.file format whether or not you change.the compatibility level or not and these.other things you're doing for instance.like log shipping or mirroring or doing.the same thing because you're taking a.backup or the old and restoring in the.new environment and it gets upgraded the.same way and so there's really no.difference there okay so we go back to.the licensing question is to follow-up.so if we are using.- cause in a virtualized environment are.we still going to be charged for four.cords well that depends because if.you're just going in and licensing.individual VMs you'd have to pay for.each core and you're supposed to pay for.a minimum of four and so if you're only.using two they would want you to pay for.four but if you have enough licenses for.the entire host and you have Software.Assurance on top of that then you can go.in and create as many VMs as you want.with as many cores as you want and so.you could get away which is having two.and they wouldn't make try to make you.pay for four so that's how that works.with virtualization okay last question.what hiccup have you come across which.caused you the most headache when.migrating to the 2017 well the biggest.issue that people still run into is.issues with the new cardinality.estimator that they introduced all the.way back in sequel 2014 and most queries.run as well or better on the new.cardinality estimator but some larger.more complex queries still have pretty.severe performance issues so again.hopefully you will run into those during.your testing and not be surprised and.the nice thing is with 2016 and 2017 you.have more knobs to turn you can have.things like database scope.configurations so you can go in and turn.on or off that cardinality estimator at.the database level previously you had to.do at the instance level or the.individual query level and now you have.more options to handle that issue but.that's the biggest problem that I see.people running into is a cardinality.estimator okay well if we've got no.further questions I'd like to thank Glen.for his time in presenting to us today.on migrating to sequel server 2017 I'd.like to thank all of you attendees for.coming along and being part of this.month's session.so as mentioned this is being recorded.and will be available on the DBA.fundamentals archive spot make sure that.you go there review this to you'll be.able to download Glenn slides as well as.the backup scripts that he took you.through also make sure that you register.for the other DBA fundamental sessions.both in North American timezone and once.again the down under timezone next month.we are running a week later next month.but we will still be on so I look.forward to seeing you all again in a.month's time thank you.you.
