SQLSaturday #410 - Chattanooga, TN - This Weekend!


Kicking off the SQLSaturday#410 event down in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is the Pre-Con event Tune Like a Guru, by SQLGuru Kevin Boles, covering a wide array

of topics that form the backbone of my SQL Server performance analysis

and tuning work. As a long-time relational engine consultant Kevin has repeatedly found that the majority of clients he work with get amazing

improvements by simply putting to use a fairly small collection of

knowledge and tools. He will cover many topics, including:

- Optimization processes

- Statistics usage and maintenance

- Index creation, usage and maintenance

- Understanding query plans

- Server and database configuration

- Improving design

- Improving code

- Profiler and trace analysis

- Temporary object usage

- Waits and IO stall analysis

 You will look at all of these things and

more from a variety of angles, while also covering many of the tips,

tricks, tools and tribal knowledge he has have collected in my almost 45,000

man hours of working with SQL Server. I promise you will come away with

lots of immediately-applicable information which you can take back to

work and Tune Like A Guru!!
