Clustered index and non clustered index in SQL

Clustered index which reordered the table and saved separately as index table(data pages stored as B-tree) there can be one clustered index per db & Non clustered index is typically a index(data pages stored as heap)

A table can have only one clustered index with many non clustered indexes.

The leaf nodes of the cluster index stores data pages and non clustered index stores key values(where as table includes clustered index) or rid's(table contains non cluster index only).

Datebase-Unavailable database:testdb is unavailable(suspect,offline,recovering etc) in SQL

SQL Error: Database-Unavailable database  :testdb is unavailable(suspect,offline,recovering etc)

1.If the database is offline, the approach should be to bring the database online by either from GUI or from query : ALTER DATABASE <database_name> SET ONLINE and if it still doesn't come up..we should check the logs for the reasons..and based on the outcome we have to proceed accordingly.

2.If the Database is offline, then try to make the database online using the script ALTER DATABASE <database name> SET ONLINE.
If it is not recover the database to online, then check in event viewer for possible error, if error is 17204--then data file has damaged,if error is 17207--- then log file has damaged,If you see this error then the database is there in suspect state.
To Recover the suspect state database u need to follow steps as below:
If data file damaged:
1. Take the tile log back up.
2.Restore Full back up with no recovery.
3.Restore Differential & Log Backups with no recovery(If you have).
4.Restore tail log backup with recovery, then database will become online.
If Log file damaged:
1.Put the database in single user mode.Using the following command.ALTER DATABASE <database_name> SET SINGLE_USER
2.Put the data base in emergency mode using ALTER DATABASE <database_name> SET EMERGENCY
3.Run the DBCC CHECKDB Command with require repair level as follows
4.Then put the data base into multi user mode.
ALTER Database <database_name> SET MULTI_USER
Then database will become online.

How to Shrink TempDB in Sql Server?

To Shrink TempDB in Sql Server below ideas can help you to handle the issue.

If it is data file then Instead of shrinking you should check the open transactions causing tempdb to get full..if it is not critical you can kill the process or else should add secondary data files. Shrinking log whereas is safe witch you can do by dbcc shrinkfile command.

1)If mdf file is full we can shrink that but sometimes we can’t shrink mdf file the reasons are:

(i)check if any locks are there through (sys.dm_tran_locks)or sp_locks

(ii)check for sys.dm_db_session_space_usage which will allows to check for page allocation and deallocation for each session on that instance

(iii)check for temporary objects in tempdb using (select * from sys.all_objects where is_ms_shipped=0)-ser created temp objects. These are called as cached objects which are residing in procedure cache which helps stored procedure to make use of the query plan. But now it is not getting shrinked we have to perform DBCC FREEPROCCACHE which will remove all the cached objects from Proc cache. But from development perspective this will lead to spaces to get recompiled.

Then perform DBCC shrink file finally which will allows us to shrink it.
