Last week I published a post that allows users use Peruvian voting data to Azure Synapse Serverless.
This post will allow us take assumptions to visualize votes on the 1st round that aligned to either left or right, and compare them to the 2nd round, where Pedro Castillo (Perú Libre) represents the left, and Keiko Fujimori (Fuerza Popular) represents the right.
It has been a controversial voting scenario for Peruvians, on the second round of voting Between Pedro Castillo (far left) and Keiko Fujimori (far right). There have been allegations of fraud, though no tangible evidence has been provided yet.
We have been experiencing an issue with a clustered node where instances will run extremely slow and the only process eating CPU resources is “NT Kernel & System”. We have upgraded drivers and even wiped out and reinstalled Windows and SQL Server (both 2008 R2) and the issue reappears.
In the process of troubleshooting with Microsoft, we needed to fail over instances to collect log information. We have done this several times. Because our latest cluster implementations include Active/Active nodes, we need to adjust Max Memory to SQL Server whenever all instances are in one node.
Yesterday something did not go right and a human error caused the instances to failed. Even experienced DBAs will eventually break something, but they will do anything possible to correct. Memory was set to 27 instead of 27000 MB. No connections could be made to the instance.
As we continued with the execution of our migration plans from SQL Server 2005 to 2008 R2 X64, we found challenges than needed to be resolved pretty quickly. The latest issue we encountered was the Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 provider in SQL Server 2008 R2 X64.
With that same provider, we were able to load Excel files directly into SQL Server 2005 X64 (SP3 and SP4), but had no luck in 2008 R2.
