Hi All,

Do we have any pre defined queries from Microsoft which gives the idea to check SQL Performance. My application is running slow now days and wanted to check if any queries/functions/data/indexes creating these problems.

Please suggest

Here's where I would start:
1. Blocking
2. PerfMon - any hardware bottlenecks
3. Profiler/Server side trace - identify long running queries, high reads, high CPU
4. Wait stats
5. Missing indexes
6. Code refactoring and fine tuning index based on #3
