The Asynchronous Ledger Trick for Lightning-Fast SQL Server OLTP

Are you facing slow database performance and frequent lock chains caused by the high concurrency of DML statements on a central table in your system? Do you find yourself dealing with Primary Key Violation errors and deadlocks due to multiple different processes accessing the same table? If yes, then check out this solution that can help you resolve these issues and significantly improve your system's performance.

The "Asynchronous Ledger" method is a great solution to the problem of long lock chains and primary key violations that can happen due to high concurrency. The solution requires minimal changes to the existing system, and by creating only 3 new database objects, the throughput of INSERTs, UPDATEs, and DELETEs can be improved significantly. These 3 database objects are:

  • An INSERT-only "Buffer Ledger" table.

  • A "Staging" table with an identical structure.

  • A "Buffer Synchronization" stored procedure that would be executed separately (i.e. by a scheduled SQL Agent job).

However, there is a delay in the visibility of the data in the final production table, which could be a problem in some cases.

Overall, this is a useful solution to consider for those facing performance problems with high-concurrency OLTP processes.

Trust me, there are still good and genuine hackers amongst all, and I can boldly tell you that PARAGON CREDIT SOLUTION is one among the best out there, 2 years ago I messed up with my credit score due to my wife’s illness, and she was diagnosed of stage 3 cancer, I had 9 negatives on my report and my score was below 517, so I tried some companies here in Alabama but I was scammed, not until my father in-law visited us, I told him what I’ve been going through and he promised to recommend a reliable hacker in Texas, after few days, he recommended I was skeptical but he assured me to be positive, after spoke w…
