i am using MS Sql Server 2005. In this server a database is there which have little bit large amount of data in this database structure more then 100 of tables are available. i already created Primary and Foreign keys to all my related tables.
now my problem is that when i run any query which has more conditions with near about approximate from 6 to 8 tables at that time the CPU Usage will go to 100%.

Please Need Help,
thanks in advance.

It is good that your cpu is fully utilized because it would be annoying otherwise, but probably this query is running for quite some time? Or is it just a little peak in the line chart? because in that case there is nothing to worry about.

running for some time. need some sql query optimization tips and in my database there is no any special index created only primary and foreign keys are there so if i create index on my few tables which are frequently used, so it will affect the result?

What kind of query are you running and how much time does it take? I have here a database with a table which hold about 100000 records with about 10 foreign keys. When I load the entire table with all foreign keys joined to it, it takes 6 seconds to load 108496 records(about 150 columns). When i add a Where-statement it takes about 30-500 ms.

To get this speed we added primary keys, foreign keys and indexes.

i didn't add index on that tables, so need to set index?

Well, if the preformance is bad, that will be the solution. Take a look at E.F. Nijboer's answer, and read the links he has given, this will clear out the usage of indexes for you.

1 solution

If you didn't create a clustered index then this is automatically created for the primary key. It could however boost performance to create an index yourself if your select is not based on the primary index but another column.[^]

There is also a lot of info on performance boosting sql server you can dive into. Have a look at these links for example:[^][^]

Good luck!
