Calculate the row size per table in a database

Antonios Chatzipavlis
Friday 07 October 2016

Σε συνέχεια από το άρθρο μου για τα Row Overflow Page έφτιαξα μια stored procedure που υπολογίζει το μέγεθος του row ανά table

Σε αυτή δεν έχω συμπεριλάβει τα πάντα στον υπολογισμό αλλά αυτό δεν είναι κάτι προβληματικό καθώς η κεντρική ιδέα είναι να μπορεί κανείς να έχει μια πληροφορία που αγγίζει τη πραγματικότητα και μια διαφορά της τάξεως των 2-5 bytes είναι αμελητέα

Απλά εκτελέστε το παρακάτω κώδικα ο οποίος δημιουργεί την sp_EstimatedTablesRowSize στην master database και την κάνει system object ώστε να είναι διαθέσιμη σε κάθε database και με use την database απλά εκτελέστε την.

Στα σχόλια της stored procedure υπάρχουν οι απαραίτητες πληροφορίες

use master

    EXEC ('CREATE PROC dbo.sp_EstimatedTablesRowSize AS SELECT ''stub version, to be replaced''')

alter proc sp_EstimatedTablesRowSize

    1.0        2016-10-06        Initial Version
                            - Calculates all tables as HEAP
                            - Does not take into account indexes
                            - Bit data type calculated as 1/8th of byte
                            - Shows and calculates the maximum row size per table (max size from all columns)
                            - The minimum size of row size is 9 bytes because heap record cannot be smaller than forwarding stub size
                            - Calclulations based on BOL page https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189124.aspx
                            - Return values
                                schema_name        : Name of table schema
                                table_name        : Name of table
                                num_cols        : Number of all table columns
                                num_variable_cols    : Number of variable lenght columns
                                row_size_bytes        : Row size in bytes
