Midlands PASS October Meeting


Taya Blanchard to speak on A

Practical Guide to Making Sense of Your SQL Server Application


Midlands PASS Chapter - October 4, 2007 Meeting

Sponsored by Quest Software

The Midlands PASS Chapter is pleased to announce Taya Blanchard as our

speaker for our October meeting. She will be speaking on looking at and

troubleshooting application performance at the SQL Server layer. Prize giveaways are courtesy of Quest Software and End-to-End Training (free copies of

Best of SQLServerCentral.com 2003). I've attached an agenda for

tomorrow's meeting. If you have not RSVPed and plan to attend, please let me

know as soon as possible so I know how much food to get.


A common goal for DBAs is to get the best performance and the most efficiency

from SQL Server deployments. Regardless of what mode a DBA is in: reactive

(problems are occurring with the production environment) or proactive (DBAs are

attempting to determine the best efficiency from workload), there is a need of a

simple set of steps to follow that will enable DBAs to meet the goal of

performance and efficiency. Quest Software will present a practical guide to

making sense of your SQL Server application performance.
