Batch File To Fetch Details From Set Of Servers

>> Create one batch file with following code, using this we can collect the server information, which are all in the same domain.

@echo off
@del CheckReport.txt
@del RepOutput.txt
@@for /f %%a in (serverlist.txt) do (
@@sqlcmd -S %%a -E -s+ -i test.sql -o RepOutput.txt
@@type RepOutput.txt>>CheckReport.txt
@@echo --------------------------------------------------+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+-----------+-----------------------+-----------------------+---------------->>CheckReport.txt

The above will use 2 text files one is Serverlist.txt and CheckReport.txt

Serverlist.txt is file where we need to mention the server list.

CheckReport is the Output File.

Test.sql is the SQL Query which will run using SQLCMD. The above will use the trusted connection.

I am using Test.SQL to fetch the Backup information and Recovery Model

Lock Escalation

SQL Server Database Engine acquires low-level locks, it also places intent locks on the objects that contain the lower-level objects:

•When locking rows or index key ranges, the Database Engine places an intent lock on the pages that contain the rows or keys.

•When locking pages, the Database Engine places an intent lock on the higher level objects that contain the pages. In addition to intent lock on the object, intent page locks are requested on the following objects:

◦Leaf-level pages of nonclustered indexes

◦Data pages of clustered indexes

◦Heap data pages

Reducing Lock Escalation

•Using an isolation level that does not generate shared locks for read operations like Read Commited
•Using trace flags 1211 and 1224 to disable all or some lock escalations
