Speaker: Grant Fritchey , SQL Server MVP and Author
Topic: Identifying and Fixing Performance Problems using Execution Plans
Date: October 28, 2010 11:00 a.m. EDT

This session will demonstrate how SQL Server execution plans can be used to identify problems with the database design, or the TSQL code, and address those problems. The session takes the user through various common issues such as poor or missing indexes, badly written code and generally bad query performance, demonstrating how to identify the issues involved using execution plans. The session will then demonstrate different methods for addressing the issues and show how the fixed query's execution plans differ. Multiple methods for accessing execution plans including graphical, DMV's, and trace events are demonstrated. All this is meant to lay a foundation for a general troubleshooting approach to empower the attendee to make their own queries run faster and more consistently.
