Featured Presentations

An Introduction Into SQL Server Extended Events

Speaker: Gareth Swanepoel

Summary: As a lone DBA in the scary new world of SQL Server Extended Events, you may be wary of the multiple threats of the deprecated profiler feature, Event Tracing for Windows and the Events themselves.

In addition, I will be detailing what "events" are and how they relate to YOUR SQL Server.
