Hi  JnavarroMc,

None of your details suggest that you'll need an extraordinary server.  That's a modest amount of data that SQL should handle quite well.

The most important details are transaction rate, insert rate, and update rate once the system is built and operational.

Do you know any of those items?

No, unfortunately. I'm still very new to SQL Server but I am very interested to specialize.

But if you give me some reference link that might help clarify these points would be of much help.

Also like to raise with the client that should give me data to correctly sizing the server hardware requirements.

Hello Kent,

I would like you to help me with the parameters that you show me. Currently working on a server that is very quickly saturated workload.

Is there a tool that can deploy or use on the server in order to show these parameters? Also could you tell me the values that are set as appropriate on a server.


According to these results, we could project the purchase of a server that fits the workload?

Greetings and thank you.

I'll be glad to help, but of course I don't have any idea what your expected workload is.

Do you already have a server that you need to upgrade?  If so, can you describe that server?
