Database and SQL Server


I want to know if somebody can explain to me the following issues I have regarding SQL Server and databases:

How can SQL Server tools be used to identify query optimisations, missing indexes etc?

Briefly so I can gain some insight on this, can you describe the design of a user database and the basic authentication process?

Thank you

No. I do not write books as answer to a very broad questions. I and the other experts are volunteers.

Not only do you want that, but also a description of how to use SQL Server tools for optimizations, missing indexes ETC

Whole careers are made providing optimization expertise, and again are a multitude of books for this sort of thing.

The way you have formed this question means there is no simple or single answer (there are 2 major topics to start with).

If you want good books on SQL Server, look for the author Itzik Ben-Gan

Afterwards, if you still have specific questions (ones that can be met with a brief answer) then we can answer those.

If you want to find out missing indexes, you need to query the DMV. Check
