Tuesday, April 30, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (CDT)
Oakbrook Terrace, IL
Please join us for a FREE evening of SQL techie fun! We'll start with an open Q&A hosted by Kimberly L. Tripp and Paul S. Randal. We were thinking we'd focus on indexing strategies and index maintenance but we can certainly go off script!
Then, Justin Randall will present how to tackle nasty query plans with SQL Sentry's FREE tool Plan Explorer in his session titled:
Tips for Query Tuning with SQL Sentry Plan Explorer and More!
Learn how SQL Sentry Plan Explorer can help you explore and tune the most difficult query plans, from the team that made this fantastic free tool. Justin Randall, Director of Professional Services at SQL Sentry, will cover the key differences between Plan Explorer and SQL Server Management Studio, plus what to look for in estimated and actual plans. During this session you will learn how to use the revolutionary FREE tool, SQL Sentry Plan Explorer, to wrangle even the scariest query plans. Finally the latest release of the SQL Sentry Power Suite introduces several unique and cutting edge features, including active query plan capture for heavy SQL, plan analysis using the integrated version of Plan Explorer, additional Plan Explorer features made possible by active capture, historical query plan analysis, VLF problem detection, and more. Justin will share an overview of the complete performance monitoring solution offered by this award-winning software.
As a general timeline - here's how the evening will go:
* 6:30 - Open Q&A
