I regularly visit client sites and review their SQL Server configurations. I come across all kinds of strange settings. I’ve been thinking about a way to aggregate people’s configurations and see what’s common and what’s unique. I used to do that with polls on SQLTeam.com. I think we can find out more interesting things if we look at combinations of settings in relation to size and volume.
