SQL Saturday Pre-Conference: Kevin Boles - Tune SQL Server Like a Guru
Fri, May 5, 2017, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM EDT
In this Pre-Con event we will cover a wide array of topics that form the backbone of my SQL Server performance analysis and tuning work. As a long-time relational engine consultant I have repeatedly found that the majority of clients I work with get amazing improvements by simply putting to use a fairly small collection of knowledge and tools. We will cover many topics, including:
- Server, virtualization and database configuration
- Optimization processes
- Understanding query plans
- Improving design
- Improving code
- Profiler use and analysis
- Temp object usage
- Waits and IO stall analysis
- ORM Badness
We will look at all of these things and more from a variety of angles, while also covering many of the tips, tricks, tools, etc. I have collected in my almost 45,000 man hours of working with SQL Server. I promise you will come away with lots of immediately-applicable information which you can take back to work and Tune Like A Guru!
