Hi, One of my colleagues put this together: http://www.redant.com/articles/design-and-build/sql-server-performance-troubleshooting-for-dummies/ and since I couldn't see anything MS-SQL specific in the stickies I thought it might be useful.
If anyone has any feedback I know he'd love any that you may have
Thanks for that, Richard. SQL Server is my main database, so I will read the article with interest.
I skimmed it over and it read well to me (I plan to go back and do a more thorough read). I've actually used several of the techniques your colleague described to handle performance issues.
