Tune SQL Server Like a Guru!


Tune SQL Server Like a Guru!

In this precon 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

Finding bad code to tune


Understanding query plans

Improving design

Improving code (LOTS of this!!)

Profiler use and analysis (I use this ALL the time :-)

Extended events

Temp object usage

Waits and IO stall analysis

Performance enhancements in recent versions of SQL Server

We will look at these things from a variety of angles, while also covering many of the tips, tricks, tools, etc. I have collected in my almost 50,000 hours of working with and studying the SQL Server engine and database applications that run on it. I promise you will come away with lots of immediately-applicable information which you can take back to work and Tune Like A Guru!

Prerequisites: Preferably an intermediate-level knowledge/experience in SQL Server and TSQL and some familiarity with reading execution plans.
