Three years ago I ran a survey about consistency checking methods. A lot has changed since then, including database sizes, 24×7 operations, and a lot more people reading my blog. I'd like to re-run that survey so we can all get a better idea of what the prevailing methodologies are these days.

So, if you run consistency checks, how do you run them?

I'll report on the results in a few weeks.

I'll be updating a few interesting surveys over the coming months to see how things have changed.
