Improve Performance - Invoke-DatabaseBuild - By removing powershell progressbar
I have discovered that too much information is being processed to simply display a percentage completed with the Invoke-DatabaseBuild command. I suspect other SQL Change Automation powershell commands are also utilizating the same behavior.
By turning the powershell progressbar off via the ps setting.
$ProgressPreference = "SilentlyContinue"
I improved a single database build performance:
From: 4 minutes -> To: 37 seconds.
I suspect there's alot of data serialization and deserialization taking place within SQL Change Automation update progressbar code to do a simple progressbar reporting update.
This code within sql change automation needs to be looked at more closely to improve the performance.
At minimum a flag on all SCA powershell commands that utilize the progressbar should be made available to disable it.
this is awesome and reduced our db build times from 26 to 9 minutes! Please have a closer look into it.
