Why You Should Perform an SQL Server Health Check Monthly

January 10, 2024

Your database isn’t a static asset. As time goes by, more data is processed, database usage changes, and more users are added. This natural evolution can start to cause issues within your database if left unchecked. 

That’s why conducting a regular audit of your database(s) is critical - we recommend at least monthly. 

What is an SQL Server Check?

Simply put, an SQL Server check ensures that everything is optimized and working properly in your database management system. A database admin or skilled IT professional will audit your SQL Server to determine overall health and performance.

What Does an SQL Server Check Detect?

There are many issues that you can experience by having an SQL Server that needs maintenance. Some common problems include:

  • Slow server operation
  • Unauthorized access to sensitive data
  • Data loss due to server crash
  • System breakdowns and unresponsiveness
  • Server monitoring issues and unreported errors
  • Missing backup data and disaster recovery
  • Configuration issues

What Does an SQL Server Check Analyze?

An SQL Server check will analyze the following areas of your database(s):

  • Server Configuration
  • Query Performance and Optimization
  • Data Protection
  • Index Health
  • Database Maintenance Procedures
  • Security
  • Notifications and Alerts
  • Best Practices

Once the SQL Server check is completed, you will have clarity on which areas need improvement, and how critical the errors are.
