Event Details

Discovering the Plan Cache

Execution plans are stored (after execution) in the plan cache.  This metadata about how queries are executed can provide insight into how your SQL Server environment is functioning.  Using XQuery to browse and search the plan cache can help you find potential performance issues and opportunities to tune your queries.  Additionally, this information  can be used to help reduce issues related to parallelism, shift queries from using scans to using seek operations, or simply just  discovering  exactly which queries are using what indexes.  All of this and more is readily available through the plan cache.

In this session, MVP Jason Strate will explore the plan cache and start you on your road to discovery.

Date: Thursday, February 16, 2012

MDX Trek: First Contact


Cube space; the final frontier. In this Star Trek themed introduction to MDX, we will discuss the fundamentals of cube structure and vocabulary, including tuples, members, sets, hierarchies, and more. We will introduce and demonstrate the basic syntax of MDX with queries that include navigating hierarchies and even some time-based expressions.

In this session, Digineer's very own Mark Vaillancourt will give you the tools you need to write simple, yet meaningful, MDX queries in your own environment and take you to a place no man has gone before.
