Description

The Save-SqlMigrationReport generates an In-Memory OLTP Migration Checklist.

This informs you about which tables in your database will benefit if ported to use In-Memory OLTP. After you identify a table that you would like to port to use In-Memory OLTP, you can use the memory optimization advisor in SQL Server Management Studio to help you migrate the disk-based table to a memory-optimized table.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Save-SqlMigrationReport -Server 'MySQLServer' -Database 'MyDB' -FolderPath 'C:\MigrationReports'

This command will generate a report for all tables and stored procedures in database MyDb on server MySQLServer. Report file (.html format) will be created for each database object and saved under C:\MigrationReports\MyDB either under Stored Procedure or Tables.

Example 2

PS C:\> $db = Get-Item 'SQLSERVER:\SQL\MySQLServer\DEFAULT\Databases\MyDB'
PS C:\> Save-SqlMigrationReport -FolderPath 'C:\MigrationReports' -InputObject $db

This command will generate the same report as Example 1; the InputObject is passed explicitly and encapsulate both the information about the server and the database.

Example 3

PS C:\> CD 'SQLSERVER:\SQL\MySQLServer\DEFAULT\Databases\MyDB'
PS SQLSERVER:\SQL\MySQLServer\DEFAULT\Databases\MyDB> Save-SqlMigrationReport -FolderPath 'C:\MigrationReports'

This command will generate the same report as Example 1 and 2. Note that the InputObject is inferred from the context, i.e. the current working directory.

Parameters

-Database

The name of the databased for which the report is going to be generated.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-FolderPath

A path to a folder where the report files will be saved to. Report files will be organized under a folder with the same name as the the value of the Database parameter nested under either a Stored Procedure or Tables folder, depending on the type of the object.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InputObject

The object (either a Database, a Table, or a Stored Procedure SMO object) on which to generate the report.

Type:SqlSmoObject
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MigrationType

The type of the migration. Currently, only OLTP is supported.

Type:MigrationType
Accepted values:OLTP
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Object

-Password

Specifies the password for the SQL Server Authentication login ID that was specified in the Username parameter. Passwords are case-sensitive. When possible, use Windows Authentication. Do not use a blank password, when possible use a strong password.

If you specify the Password parameter followed by your password, the password is visible to anyone who can see your monitor.
