It’s time to get your learn on again. The schedule for the Fall 24 Hours of PASS is up and ready for registration. This is the Summit preview session, so many (most, all) of the speakers are showing off some of what you can learn at their sessions at the PASS Summit 2012 itself. It looks like a pretty exciting bunch of topics given by some of the best professionals in the industry.
I’ll be presenting Three Ways to Identify Slow Running Queries on September 20th, 1400 GMT. This is just a sub-set of the information that I’ll be presenting during my all day pre-conference seminar, Query Performance Tuning: Start to Finish. The full seminar I talk about how to measure the performance of your systems, identify which queries are causing you the most trouble, figure out what that trouble is, and show how to fix those queries. This session of 24HOP, I just focus down on three methods you can use, right now, to understand the most costly queries on your servers. If you want to know what to do about them, well, you’ll have to register for the seminar.
A lot of this information is derived from the new edition of my book, SQL Server 2012 Query Performance Tuning. So you can check that out too if you’re so inclined.
