    DP-300 Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure Part 06 Q02 066 Question
    DP-300 Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure Part 06 Q02 066 Answer
    DP-300 Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure Part 06 Q02 066 Answer
    Explanation:

    Box 1: Yes
    We see: Tuning option: Create index ON
    CREATE INDEX – Identifies indexes that may improve performance of your workload, creates indexes, and automatically verifies that performance of queries has improved.

    Box 2: No

    Box 3: Yes
    FORCE LAST GOOD PLAN (automatic plan correction) – Identifies Azure SQL queries using an execution plan that is slower than the previous good plan, and queries using the last known good plan instead of the regressed plan.

  3. You have an Azure SQL database named DB1. You run a query while connected to DB1.

    You review the actual execution plan for the query, and you add an index to a table referenced by the query.

    You need to compare the previous actual execution plan for the query to the Live Query Statistics.

    What should you do first in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)?

    • For DB1, set QUERY_CAPTURE_MODE of Query Store to All.
    • Run the SET SHOWPLAN_ALL Transact-SQL statement.
    • Save the actual execution plan.
    • Enable Query Store for DB1.
    Explanation:

    The Plan Comparison menu option allows side-by-side comparison of two different execution plans, for easier identification of similarities and changes that explain the different behaviors for all the reasons stated above. This option can compare between:

    Two previously saved execution plan files (.sqlplan extension).
    One active execution plan and one previously saved query execution plan.
    Two selected query plans in Query Store.

  4. You have an Azure SQL database.

    Users report that the executions of a stored procedure are slower than usual. You suspect that a regressed query is causing the performance issue.

    You need to view the query execution plan to verify whether a regressed query is causing the issue. The solution must minimize effort.

    What should you use?

    • Performance Recommendations in the Azure portal
    • Extended Events in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)
    • Query Store in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)
    • Query Performance Insight in the Azure portal
    Explanation:

    Use the Query Store Page in SQL Server Management Studio.

    Query performance regressions caused by execution plan changes can be non-trivial and time consuming to resolve.

    Since the Query Store retains multiple execution plans per query, it can enforce policies to direct the Query Processor to use a specific execution plan for a query. This is referred to as plan forcing. Plan forcing in Query Store is provided by using a mechanism similar to the USE PLAN query hint, but it does not require any change in user applications. Plan forcing can resolve a query performance regression caused by a plan change in a very short period of time.

  5. You have an Azure SQL database. The database contains a table that uses a columnstore index and is accessed infrequently.

    You enable columnstore archival compression.

    What are two possible results of the configuration? Each correct answer presents a complete solution.

    NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

    • Queries that use the index will consume more disk I/O.
    • Queries that use the index will retrieve fewer data pages.
    • The index will consume more disk space.
    • The index will consume more memory.
    • Queries that use the index will consume more CPU resources.
    Explanation:

    For rowstore tables and indexes, use the data compression feature to help reduce the size of the database. In addition to saving space, data compression can help improve performance of I/O intensive workloads because the data is stored in fewer pages and queries need to read fewer pages from disk.

    Use columnstore archival compression to further reduce the data size for situations when you can afford extra time and CPU resources to store and retrieve the data.

  6. You are designing a dimension table in an Azure Synapse Analytics dedicated SQL pool.

    You need to create a surrogate key for the table. The solution must provide the fastest query performance.

    What should you use for the surrogate key?

    • an IDENTITY column
    • a GUID column
    • a sequence object
    Explanation:
    Dedicated SQL pool supports many, but not all, of the table features offered by other databases.
    Surrogate keys are not supported. Implement it with an Identity column.
  7. You are designing a star schema for a dataset that contains records of online orders. Each record includes an order date, an order due date, and an order ship date.

    You need to ensure that the design provides the fastest query times of the records when querying for arbitrary date ranges and aggregating by fiscal calendar attributes.

    Which two actions should you perform? Each correct answer presents part of the solution.

    NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

    • Create a date dimension table that has a DateTime key.
    • Create a date dimension table that has an integer key in the format of YYYYMMDD.
    • Use built-in SQL functions to extract date attributes.
    • Use integer columns for the date fields.
    • Use DateTime columns for the date fields.
  8. HOTSPOT

    You are designing an enterprise data warehouse in Azure Synapse Analytics that will store website traffic analytics in a star schema.

    You plan to have a fact table for website visits. The table will be approximately 5 GB.

    You need to recommend which distribution type and index type to use for the table. The solution must provide the fastest query performance.

    What should you recommend? To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.

    NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

    DP-300 Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure Part 06 Q08 067 Answer
    Explanation:

    Box 1: Hash
    Consider using a hash-distributed table when:

    The table size on disk is more than 2 GB.
    The table has frequent insert, update, and delete operations.

    Box 2: Clustered columnstore
    Clustered columnstore tables offer both the highest level of data compression and the best overall query performance.

  9. You have an Azure Data Factory pipeline that is triggered hourly.

    The pipeline has had 100% success for the past seven days.

    The pipeline execution fails, and two retries that occur 15 minutes apart also fail. The third failure returns the following error.

    DP-300 Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure Part 06 Q15 073 Answer
    DP-300 Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure Part 06 Q15 073 Answer
    Explanation:

    Box 1: Key Lookup
    The Key Lookup cost is 99% so that is the performance bottleneck.

    Box 2: nonclustered index
    The key lookup on the clustered index is used because the nonclustered index does not include the required columns to resolve the query. If you add the required columns to the nonclustered index, the key lookup will not be required.

    Contoso, Ltd. is a financial data company that has 100 employees. The company delivers financial data to customers.

    Physical Locations

    Contoso has a datacenter in Los Angeles and an Azure subscription. All Azure resources are in the US West 2 Azure region. Contoso has a 10-Gb ExpressRoute connection to Azure.

    The company has customers worldwide.

    Existing Environment

    Active Directory

    Contoso has a hybrid Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) deployment that syncs to on-premises Active Directory.

    Database Environment

    Contoso has SQL Server 2017 on Azure virtual machines shown in the following table.

    DP-300 Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure Part 06 Q16 074
    DP-300 Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure Part 06 Q16 074

    SQL1 and SQL2 are in an Always On availability group and are actively queried. SQL3 runs jobs, provides historical data, and handles the delivery of data to customers.

    The on-premises datacenter contains a PostgreSQL server that has a 50-TB database.

    Current Business Model

    Contoso uses Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) to create flat files for customers. The customers receive the files by using FTP.

    Requirements

    Planned Changes

    Contoso plans to move to a model in which they deliver data to customer databases that run as platform as a service (PaaS) offerings. When a customer establishes a service agreement with Contoso, a separate resource group that contains an Azure SQL database will be provisioned for the customer. The database will have a complete copy of the financial data. The data to which each customer will have access will depend on the service agreement tier. The customers can change tiers by changing their service agreement.

    The estimated size of each PaaS database is 1 TB.

    Contoso plans to implement the following changes:

    – Move the PostgreSQL database to Azure Database for PostgreSQL during the next six months.
    – Upgrade SQL1, SQL2, and SQL3 to SQL Server 2019 during the next few months.
    – Start onboarding customers to the new PaaS solution within six months.

    Business Goals

    Contoso identifies the following business requirements:

    – Use built-in Azure features whenever possible.
    – Minimize development effort whenever possible.
    – Minimize the compute costs of the PaaS solutions.
    – Provide all the customers with their own copy of the database by using the PaaS solution.
    – Provide the customers with different table and row access based on the customer’s service agreement.
    – In the event of an Azure regional outage, ensure that the customers can access the PaaS solution with minimal downtime. The solution must provide automatic failover.
    – Ensure that users of the PaaS solution can create their own database objects but be prevented from modifying any of the existing database objects supplied by Contoso.

    Technical Requirements

    Contoso identifies the following technical requirements:

    – Users of the PaaS solution must be able to sign in by using their own corporate Azure AD credentials or have Azure AD credentials supplied to them by Contoso. The solution must avoid using the internal Azure AD of Contoso to minimize guest users.
    – All customers must have their own resource group, Azure SQL server, and Azure SQL database. The deployment of resources for each customer must be done in a consistent fashion.
    – Users must be able to review the queries issued against the PaaS databases and identify any new objects created.
    – Downtime during the PostgreSQL database migration must be minimized.

    Monitoring Requirements

    Contoso identifies the following monitoring requirements:

    – Notify administrators when a PaaS database has a higher than average CPU usage.
    – Use a single dashboard to review security and audit data for all the PaaS databases.
    – Use a single dashboard to monitor query performance and bottlenecks across all the PaaS databases.
    – Monitor the PaaS databases to identify poorly performing queries and resolve query performance issues automatically whenever possible.

    PaaS Prototype

    During prototyping of the PaaS solution in Azure, you record the compute utilization of a customer’s Azure SQL database as shown in the following exhibit.

    DP-300 Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure Part 06 Q19 080 Answer
    Explanation:

    Step 1: Create an Azure Policy Initiative
    The first step in enforcing compliance with Azure Policy is to assign a policy definition. A policy definition defines under what condition a policy is enforced and what effect to take.

    With an initiative definition, you can group several policy definitions to achieve one overarching goal. An initiative evaluates resources within scope of the assignment for compliance to the included policies.

    Step 2: Create an Azure Policy Initiative assignment
    Assign the initiative definition you created in the previous step.

    Step 3: Run Azure Policy remediation tasks
    To apply the Policy Initiative to the existing SQL databases.

  20. You have an Azure SQL Database managed instance named SQLMI1. A Microsoft SQL Server Agent job runs on SQLMI1.

    You need to ensure that an automatic email notification is sent once the job completes.
