Optimizing Stored Procedure Calls

  • Execute Stored Procedure with Fully Qualified Name (include schema, for example “EXEC dbo.mystoredproc”)
  • Execute Stored Procedure with same capitalization (upper/lower case) as it was created
  • Do not name stored procedures with “sp_” prefix unless you are specifically intending to create a global stored procedure (preferably in master database)
  • Make sure that the Stored Procedure execution query is sent to SQL as an RPC instead of a Language Event. For example, for the .Net command object be sure to explicitly set CommandType to StoredProcedure
