SQL SERVER 2016 Always Encrypted

It is the new way of Data encryption introduced with SQL Server 2016 used for encrypting the sensitive date encrypted at the application layer via ADO.NET. This means you can encrypt your confidential data with the yours.NET application before the data being sent across the network to SQL Server.

Column master key:

The Column Master Key is stored on an application machine, in an external key store. This key used for protecting the column encryption key and SQL Server doesn’t have any access to this core directly

Column Encryption Key:

But this one is stored in SQL Server and it used for encrypting/decrypt the Always Encrypted column at this time the scenario of the encryption will be the first ADO.NET has decrypted the Column Encryption Key, using the Column Master Key then SQL Server use Encryption Key for encrypting/decrypt the Always Encrypted column.

Technical Demo:

  • Expand your DB under security you will find “Always Encrypted Keys
  • Right click create new column master key

USE [SQL2016DEMO]
CREATE COLUMN MASTER KEY [Demo_Always_Encrypted_CMK]
WITH
(
KEY_STORE_PROVIDER_NAME = N’MSSQL_CERTIFICATE_STORE’,
KEY_PATH = N’CurrentUser/My/09D607EDCEC14A9E009FC59B67E7F423DBEE9C9E’
)

Live Query Statistics in SQL Server 2016

Today we have very good features it will help us in our daily work (Performance troubleshooting and for the debugging of queries) as we know to tune any SQL Server query you should Check first the Execution plan to decide from where the problem from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2014 we have two types of Execution plan:

  • Estimated Execution Plan: Giving you an idea of how SQL Server will most likely perform query execution
  • Actual Execution Plan       : This will show you things that might hint at “out-of-date” statistics etc. But to get this, you must run the query – which can take a long time.

So before if we have case one Query returned Millions of record and we need to check the Query execution plan for it we will go directly for the Estimated Execution plan because actual Execution plan if we need to see it we will wait more time to the query finish and return all the result but Now in SQL Server 2016 we have new Execution plan type ” Live Query Statistics ”  this new features it will he;p us to see the Execution plan when the Query running and the Effect of the Query on the Execution plan step by step from more points:

  • Execution Query Percentage
  • Actual Number of Rows
  • elapsed time
  • operator progress

What I use here in my demo is simple Query return more than 8 Millions of records if I wait for this query to return all this data to see the Actual Execution plan I will wait around 20 Minutes but now in SQL Server 2016 I will See the Execution plan the Actual Execution Plan Live with Live Query Statistics 

SELECT *
FROM sys.all_columns tmp1
Cross JOIN sys.all_columns tmp2

Where is index location on Database?

Where is index location on Database?

Where is index location on Database? 

Hi guys today I will show smoothing is easy but more important to know about it {Where is the index live} by the below DMV we can return all the index with table name and with File group hosted on it , another thing you can use this DMV to know the heap tables , Clustered index , non-Clustered index

Index Location:

WITH C AS
(

SELECT ps.data_space_id
, f.name
, d.physical_name
FROM sys.filegroups f
JOIN sys.database_files d ON d.data_space_id = f.data_space_id
JOIN sys.destination_data_spaces dds ON dds.data_space_id = f.data_space_id
JOIN sys.partition_schemes ps ON ps.data_space_id = dds.partition_scheme_id

UNION

SELECT f.data_space_id
, f.name
, d.physical_name
FROM sys.filegroups f
JOIN sys.database_files d ON d.data_space_id = f.data_space_id
)
–SELECT * FROM c
SELECT [ObjectName] = OBJECT_NAME(i.[object_id])
, [IndexID] = i.[index_id]
, [IndexName] = i.[name]
, [IndexType] = i.[type_desc]
, [Partitioned] = CASE WHEN ps.data_space_id IS NULL THEN ‘No’
ELSE ‘Yes’
END
, [StorageName] = ISNULL(ps.name, f.name)
, [FileGroupPaths] = CAST(( SELECT name AS “FileGroup”
, physical_name AS “DatabaseFile”
FROM C

WHERE i.data_space_id = c.data_space_id
FOR
XML PATH(”)
) AS XML)
FROM [sys].[indexes] i
LEFT JOIN sys.partition_schemes ps ON ps.data_space_id = i.data_space_id
LEFT JOIN sys.filegroups f ON f.data_space_id = i.data_space_id
WHERE OBJECTPROPERTY(i.[object_id], ‘IsUserTable’) = 1
ORDER BY [ObjectName], [IndexName]

index

Follow me because next post I will explain everything about the index and How you can build you index model How you can Enhance your expensive query by index more Secrets in the index …ETC
