PASS Summit 2011 Session Materials

I’ll be posting a summit wrap-up after I return next week from my honeymoon.  Until then, though, I wanted to make sure that anyone that wanted them, had the materials I used in my presentation.

Extended Events - Work Smarter, Not Harder (PASS 2011)

Execution plans are stored after execution in the plan cache. This metadata about how queries are executed can provide insight into how your SQL Server environment is functioning. By using XQuery to browse and search the plan cache you can find potential performance issues and opportunities to tune your queries. This information can be used to help reduce issues related to parallelism, shift queries from using scans to using seek operations, or discover exactly which queries are using what indexes. All of this and more is readily available through the plan cache. In this session we will explore the plan cache and start you on the road to discovery.

Discovering the Plan Cache (PASS 2011)

There are many ways to performance monitor your SQL Server environment. In this session we’ll review Extended Events, which is one of the newer SQL Server monitoring platforms. Learn the ins and outs of how to get detailed information on the errors and events that occur within SQL Server and how to dig into the information. With a few T-SQL statements, issues that could take weeks to research can be investigated in minutes.

For those that attended my presentations, Thank You. It is a great feeling to know that people are interested in what I have to talk about.
