Finally have a chance to do some forensics on statsbox, I'm starting off with the normal "dbcc checkdb" and "update statistics" just to make sure everything is tidy at the lowest levels. I also see that we're getting close to capacity (only about 150mb free on the main statsdb device) so I'm going to slice off another half gig or so of space for the data tables.
I think we're within a few months of needing another drive in there, the main RC5_64_master table is nearing 20 million rows.
The goal today is to determine the cause of the daily update slowdowns that started last week, although I'd settle for prodding at the box and having it automagically start working properly.
En voor wie dat nog niet gedaan heeft: lid worden van de Dutch Power Cows kan hier.
