(First blog post from Poland! We're here to present at the Microsoft Poland Technology Summit.) 

The October edition of TechNet Magazine is available on the web now and has the latest installment of my regular SQL Q&A column.

This month's topics are:

  • Unexpected consistency checks?
  • How much space is each database using in the buffer pool 
  • Difference between SUSPECT and RECOVERY_PENDING 
  • Why database mirroring failure detection isn't instant
