Input needed for balancing SQL Server write performance against read performance
Category : Databases

I've got a service running that transforms data and writes the transformed (a couple of million rows) data to a SQL Server. The frontend reads from these tables.

My current approach is writing individual rows, one server call at a time. This seems to

Measuring the performance of a machine to compare code performance
Category : Programming Languages

I am operating on the .NET Framework 4.5 using C#

I wish to measure code performance but have the additional complication that I would like to have a comparison between machines (different hardware).

One of the core goals is to come up with benchmarks that compare algorithms (algo X vs algo Y using dataset Z) which is fine if I consistently use the same exact hardware bu
