File Element (DTA)

Specifies the workload file. A workload is a set of Transact-SQL statements that execute against a database or databases that you want to tune. Workload files can be Transact-SQL scripts (.sql) or trace files (.trc). For more information, seeStart and Use the Database Engine Tuning Advisor.

    <File>...</File>
  </Workload>

Characteristic

Description

Data type and length

Use the string data type to specify the directory path to your workload file. For example:

<File>C:\Tuning\tun.sql</File>

Length limit is enforced by the server.

Default value

None.

Occurrence

Required once if no other type of workload is specified. You must specify an EventString, a File, or a Database child element for the Workload parent, but only one type can be used. For example, if you specify a workload with the File element, then you cannot also specify a workload with the Database element in the same XML input file.
