Parallelism and Performance: Are You Getting Full Return on Your CPU Investment?

By Press Release,

August 2010 PASS Performance VC Presentation

Parallelism and Performance: Are You Getting Full Return on Your CPU Investment?
August 3rd 12:00 PM EDT (GMT -4)

Presenter:Adam Machanic

Abstract:

In today's multi-core-driven world, query performance is very much determined by how well you're taking advantage of the processing power at your disposal. Are your big queries using every available clock tick, or are they lagging behind? And if your queries are already going parallel, can they be rewritten for even greater speed? In this session you will learn the background necessary to take full advantage of parallelism. We'll cover what parallelism is, why it's important, and the basics of how to read parallel query plans. Examples will be shown to illustrate some of the huge performance gains that can be had when we learn to properly control SQL Server's parallel processing capabilities. This session is a small preview of some of the material that will be covered in Adam Machanic's full-day PASS Summit post-con, "A Day of Doing Many Things at Once."
