----------------------------------------------------------------
-- Description:
-- ------------
-- This script performs compression savings estimation check for both PAGE and ROW
-- compression for an ENTIRE DATABASE.
-- For each index which passes the check, a corresponding ALTER INDEX command
-- is printed for you to use in order to apply the compression.
-- The script also compares the results of the PAGE and ROW estimations and automatically
-- selects the one with the better savings as the command to print, based on the provided thresholds.
-- This script uses mathematical rounding functions FLOOR and CEILING in a manner which makes it more "cautious".
--
-- Some of the algorithms in this script were adapted from the following resources:
-- https://www.sqlservercentral.com/blogs/introducing-what_to_compress-v2
-- https://github.com/microsoft/tigertoolbox/tree/master/Evaluate-Compression-Gains
-- https://github.com/microsoft/azure-sql-tips

--
-- IMPORTANT !!!
-- -------------
--
-- 1. Don't forget to change the @DatabaseName parameter value to the one you want to check.
--
-- 2. BE MINDFUL IN PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENTS !
--
-- - If you want to be extra careful, run this script with @FeasibilityCheckOnly set to 1. This will perform only basic checks for compression candidates
-- based on usage and operational stats only, without running [sp_estimate_data_compression_savings].
--
-- - Running this script with @FeasibilityCheckOnly = 0 may take a very long time on big databases with many tables, and significant IO + CPU stress may be noticeable.
--
-- - Schema-level locks may be held for a while per each table, and will possibly block other sessions performing DDL operations.
--
-- - This script uses [sp_estimate_data_compression_savings] which copies 5 % of your data into TempDB and compresses it there.
-- If you have very large tables, you must be very careful not to fill out the disk.
-- Please use the following cautionary threshold parameters to avoid such scenarios: @MaxSizeMBForActualCheck, @TempDBSpaceUsageThresholdPercent
----------------------------------------------------------------
-- Parameters:
-- -----------
DECLARE
-- Choose what to check:
@DatabaseName SYSNAME = NULL -- Specify the name of the database to check. If NULL, will use current.
,@FeasibilityCheckOnly BIT = 1 -- If 1, will only check for potential compression candidates, without using sp_estimate_data_compression_savings and without generating remediation scripts
,@CheckPerPartition BIT = 0 -- If 1, will perform separate estimation checks per partition
,@MinimumSizeMB INT = 256 -- Minimum table/partition size in MB in order to perform estimation checks on it
-- Cautionary thresholds:
,@MaxSizeMBForActualCheck INT = NULL -- If a table/partition is bigger than this size (in MB), then sp_estimate_data_compression_savings will NOT be executed for it. If set to NULL, then use available TempDB space instead
,@TempDBSpaceUsageThresholdPercent INT = 60 -- A percentage number between 1 and 100, representing how much of the disk space available to TempDB is allowed to be used for the estimation checks
-- Cautionary parameters to stop/pause execution if CPU utilization is too high (this affects both the estimation check and the rebuild script):
,@MaximumCPUPercentForRebuild INT = 80 -- Maximum average CPU utilization to allow rebuild. Set to NULL to ignore.
,@SamplesToCheckAvgForCPUPercent INT = 10 -- Number of CPU utilization percent samples to check and average out
,@MaximumTimeToWaitForCPU DATETIME = '00:10:00' -- Maximum time to continously wait for CPU utilization to drop below threshold, before cancelling execution (HH:MM:SS.MS format). Set to NULL to wait forever.
-- Optional cautionary parameters controlling allowed execution window (server clock)
-- You can think of this as your "maintenance window" (24hour based. for example, between 0 and 4):
,@AllowedRuntimeHourFrom INT = NULL -- If not NULL, will specify minimum hour of day during which rebuilds are allowed
,@AllowedRuntimeHourTo INT = NULL -- If not NULL, will specify maximum hour of day during which rebuilds are allowed
-- Optional cautionary parameters controlling forbidden execution window (server clock)
-- You can think of this as your "business hours" (24hour based. for example, between 6 and 22):
,@NotAllowedRuntimeHourFrom INT = 6 -- If not NULL, will specify minimum time of day during which rebuilds are forbidden
,@NotAllowedRuntimeHourTo INT = 22 -- If not NULL, will specify maximum time of day during which rebuilds are forbidden
-- Threshold parameters controlling recommendation algorithms based on partition stats:
,@MinimumCompressibleDataPercent INT = 45 -- Minimum percent of compressible in-row data, in order to consider any compression
,@MaximumUpdatePctAsInfrequent INT = 10 -- Maximum percent of updates for all operations to consider as "infrequent updates"
,@MinimumScanPctForComparison INT = 5 -- Minimum percent of range scans before considering to compare between update and scan percentages
,@MinimumScanPctForPage INT = 40 -- Minimum percent of scans when comparing to update percent, to deem PAGE compression preferable (otherwise, ROW compression will be preferable)
,@MaximumUpdatePctForPage INT = 40 -- Maximum percent of updates when comparing to scan percent, to deem PAGE compression preferable
,@MaximumUpdatePctForRow INT = 60 -- Maximum percent of updates when comparing to scan percent, to deem ROW compression preferable
-- Threshold parameters controlling recommendation algorithms based on savings estimation check:
,@CompressionRatioThreshold FLOAT = 45 -- Number between 0 and 100 representing the minimum compressed data ratio, relative to current size, for which a check will pass
,@CompressionSizeSavedMBThreshold FLOAT = 200 -- Minimum estimated saved space in MB resulting from compression (affects both PAGE and ROW compressions)
,@MinimumRatioDifferenceForPage FLOAT = 20 -- Minimum difference in percentage between ROW and PAGE compression types, in order to deem PAGE compression preferable
,@MinimumSavingsMBDifferenceForPage FLOAT = 40 -- Minimum difference in saved space in MB between ROW and PAGE compression types, in order to deem PAGE compression preferable
-- Parameters controlling the structure of output scripts:
,@OnlineRebuild BIT = 1 -- If 1, will generate REBUILD commands with the ONLINE option turned on
,@ResumableRebuild BIT = 0 -- If 1, will generate REBUILD commands with the RESUMABLE option turned on (SQL 2019 and newer only)
,@SortInTempDB BIT = 1 -- If 1, will generate REBUILD commands with the SORT_IN_TEMPDB option turned on
,@MaxDOP INT = NULL -- If not NULL, will add a MaxDOP option accordingly. Set to 1 to prevent parallelism and reduce workload.

Hi @NathanLifshes, thank you for your comment.

Line 607 belongs to a code section which is responsible for PRINTING the remediation script.

However, the results that you receive in the results grid are generated by line 522, which is NOT filtered.

The purpose of that is to give you a full view of the estimation results, while only printing the actionable recommendations as a remediation script (visible in the messages window).

comprehensive script, although I think there is a bug if I am following the comments regarding selecting the best compression type. I am receiving both statements for ROW and PAGE level compression for every index..

I am also not receiving the estimated compression stats?

Hi @woodsy1978 ,
Yes, you'll be getting both estimates for PAGE and ROW compression levels.
However, the column is_compression_recommended should indicate which one of them is actually recommended.

The reason you're not receiving the estimated compression stats is most likely because you didn't change @FeasibilityCheckOnly to 0.
Change it to 0 and run it again in order to perform the full estimation check.

Thank you very much for creating this. It saved me a lot of time and you went way beyond being a minimal implementation.

I think it would would be a nice addition if the script could determine that the best action for a table, which is ROW/PAGE compressed, is to reverted back to no compression. The same goes for reverting a PAGE compression back to ROW compression, if that is not already implemented.

Hi @drasive ,
Thank you for your feedback! I'm glad that you found this script useful.

That's an interesting idea to add a calculation to determine whether compression should be reverted.
However, that would likely require a significant code change, and I'm not certain that it really justifies the effort.

As for reverting from PAGE compression back to ROW compression, you should check out the following blog post:

Why do I have some index names NULL, I'm on SQL Server 2019 Enterprise.

--Database [test], table [dbo].[testtable], index [(null)], partition (null): size: 586 MB, in-row data: 99 percent, range scans: 3 percent, updates: 0 percent. Compression type: PAGE

Hi acscott, when an index is specified as null, it means it's a heap table.
