If you are looking for a presentation that brings together bacon, unicorns, and lightsabers, then you should have seen my presentation this past Thursday for Pragmatic Works Training on the T’s. The session was 5 Amazing Reasons DBAs Need to Love Extended Events. In it, I ran through a list of reasons on why extended events gets me pumped up for performance tuning.
The abstract for the sessions is:
Extended events provide DBAs with a powerful tool that can be used to troubleshoot and investigate SQL Server. Throughout this session, you’ll walk through five great reasons, with demos. By the end of the webcast, you’ll be itching to grab the scripts from the demos to start building your own extended event sessions today.
The presentation materials, including the slide deck and the code can be downloaded from this link:
For just the slide deck, you can flip through the slides below.
