Event Details

Speaker: Paul White (

Abstract: Very few people know how to correctly interpret parallel execution plans or debug performance problems when they occur. This session will give you a clear overview, then dive deep into query processor internals to provide insight and the practical tools and knowledge you need to take full advantage of parallel execution. You'll discover the true meaning of CXPACKET, common causes of poor performance, and how things really work under the covers
