How It Works: BULK INSERT (BCP) TDS Traffic

SQL Server According to Bob

Yesterday I had a discussion with a customer and realized that the BCP, TDS pattern could use a bit of documentation. Customer Scenario/Question: I am using BCP.exe to import a large data set. BCP.exe takes 15 minutes to complete but I only see a few seconds for the BULK INSERT command when monitoring dm_exec_requests. What is taking so long if the BULK INSERT is only showing a few seconds in dm_exec_requests? The customer was correct in her observation.

Why Load Balancing Is Important for Web Servers?


In the web hosting service industry, it is commonly used for balancing the HTTP traffic across multiple servers which act together as a web front-end. A Load Balancer allows the users to distribute the traffic to a single IP across several servers by using a set of different protocols. In case if one of the server nodes fails, the traffic can be programmatically distributed to other nodes without any service interruption. What is Load Balancing?

The Best Way to Host MongoDB on DigitalOcean


While adequate for low-traffic applications, small databases, and dev/test environments, we recommend against leveraging shared clusters for your MongoDB production deployments. This is typically more than adequate for production deployments and high-traffic applications, and starts at $60/month for 8GB of memory, 2 vCPUs, 4TB of transfer and 25GB of SSD disk space. MongoDB is the #3 open source database and the #1 NoSQL database in the world.
