Subject Re: Benchmarking MS SQL Server: suggestions?

jmeter just uses the jdbc driver connection pool. beyond that, jmeter
doesn't know or care about how the pool works. this is assuming the jdbc
driver has built in connection pooling.

my knowledge of execution plan is limited, but tuning low level settings can
have bad side effects. if the server is tuned for specific type of query,
but different queries are sent, it could inadvertantly cause worse
performance. Sql Server does a pretty good job of optimizing queries and
execution plans, so it's generally not necessary to tune low level settings.

out of curiousity, are the queries you're running have lots of joins or
subqueries? if so, that could be a cause. one thing you might want to do is
run some basic queries to establish a base line and then work your way up.
