I was chosen to speak at SQL Saturday 111 in Atlanta GA this weekend. I will be doing my session called “It’s TEMPDB, Why Should You Care”. In this session I cover the importance of TEMPDB and how best to configure TEMPDB in your environment. Not only do I cover a lot of material on slides which are available to download on the event website, I also break out into a live demo demonstrating contention on TEMPDB and discuss how best to eliminate or reduce the contention.
I have presented this session at a number of other events and always get positive feedback on the technical material in the presentation. If you don’t know why TEMPDB is important or have not configured TEMPDB after a base install, come hear me speak or just shoot me an email.
