I’ll be doing an introductory level presentation on statistics for the Performance VC on September 7th, details and the LiveMeeting URL at http://performance.sqlpass.org/). For those of you who have been tuning for a while you’re not likely to learn a lot of new stuff, really focused on those new to the concepts and showing them where stats plugs in. Still, hope you’ll attend and ask a few questions, it’s practice for doing the same presentation at the Summit. I’ve done this one a good half dozen times already, still experimenting, still learning what is most important, what is worth showing.
I'm Andy Warren, currently a SQL Server trainer with End to End Training. Over the past few years I've been a developer, DBA, and IT Director. I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.
