SQL Database Integrity Systems
Automated systems are established to routinely record a number of informational parameters within the specific SQLServer database. One of the more primary parameters is simply the row_count stats for all the constituent tables which comprise the database. The behaviour of the changes of the table Rowcount stats can - surprisingly enough - prove of invaluable assistance in certain instances.

The analysis of the fluctuation in the periodically generated rowcount stats for specific tables can often provide insightful review of the activity of these selected data tables. Associated with the activity of these tables is a special signature of change, and these will correlate to the net operational change of the quantitative amount of rows of data within that table.

Additionally, over time related stats on table sizes will be able to be extrapolated
for the major contributing tables of the database so that when the
time for disk capacity planning review arrives, there will be
information put aside - information specific to your current
