In one of my previous posts, Fun with DATETIME Arithmetics, I introduced a way to use “math” to manipulate datetime values for effectively generating, calculating, and displaying intervals (i.e. difference between two datetime values). These mostly work with the addition and subtraction operators (+, -). In one of the paragraphs, I mentioned multiplication and division, […]
If you know me, you already know that I’m a huge fan of automation. Therefore, it’s natural to assume that I would dabble in Powershell at least once or twice or a few dozen, as a method to implement useful automations. After all, automation is pretty much the whole essence of Powershell in the first […]
This month’s #tsql2sday is hosted by @AndyLeonard, who asks us to write about “software changes”. Well, I think it’s time to be changing sp_help_revlogin. What do you think?
Did you know that we can have basic datetime arithmetics in SQL server? We can use subtraction to find an accurate difference between two dates, and use addition to add an accurate interval to a datetime column or variable.

Sometimes SentryOne would not be able to activate its “Full Access” monitoring mode. This article describes a simple but effective methodology to resolve such issues.
If left unchecked, SQL Server’s historical data could pile up, causing all kinds of problems. So, let no historical data remain un-cleaned!
This month’s T-SQL Tuesday is hosted by Brent Ozar, who asks us to Blog about our Favorite Data Type (or Least Favorite).
I find it actually quite easy to decide both on a most-favorite, as well as a least-favorite data type in SQL Server. So, why not blog about both?
This is one of those things that I would have never expected to adopt, and yet here I am! Not just loving “infinite” loops, but also confident enough that I can convince you to feel the same!
This month’s T-SQL Tuesday is hosted by Mikey Bronowski, and asks us to share the tools of the trade that make our job awesome.
While I do feel that the tools that make my job the awesomest are those that help me with productivity, this month’s topic is a bit broader.
Keeping your SQL Server estate up-to-date is an important task for us DBAs.
But, unfortunately, something that’s not quite as easy or straight-forward to do automatically.
In today’s post, we’ll create a solution to automatically alert us when a SQL Server monitored by SentryOne becomes outdated.
