Tip of the Day: What is a Dirty Page?

Antonios Chatzipavlis
Wednesday 11 May 2011

Όταν μια σελίδα διαβάζεται από τον δίσκο και μπαίνει στην buffer cache θεωρείται ότι είναι μια Clean Page. Όταν όμως κάνω ένα transaction το οποίο την επηρεάζει (πάντα στην μνήμη) αυτή είναι μια Dirty Page (μπαίνει ένα mark στον header της) καθώς η εικόνα στην μνήμη είναι διαφορετική από αυτή στο δίσκο.

Για να δω πόσες dirty pages έχω ανά βάση αρκεί να εκτελέσω το παρακάτω query που χρησιμοποιεί την sys.dm_os_buffer_descriptors

SELECT db_name(database_id) AS 'Database',count(page_id) AS 'Dirty Pages'
FROM sys.dm_os_buffer_descriptors
WHERE is_modified =1
GROUP BY db_name(database_id)
ORDER BY count(page_id) DESC
