How to Get Started Tuning SQL Server Performance

 

Tuesday , March 14, 2017 1 PM CDT

 

By Tim Radney

 

Figuring out how to get started tuning SQL Server performance can feel overwhelming at first. Where do you start? What should you look at? In this session you'll learn a systematic approach to tuning SQL Server. First we'll cover common instance level settings that can have a significant impact on SQL Server performance. Then we'll cover how to collect I/O metrics and pinpoint databases that have the highest latencies plus how to collect and understand wait statistics. Finally, we'll cover how to find high-cost queries and discuss the importance of having a good baseline to measure all these things against. If you've been struggling to put together a performance-tuning process, this session is for you!

Nutanix is now the Data Architecture Virtual Chapter sponsor. http://bit.ly/sqlonnutanix

 

Data Architecture underpins just about everything we do in IT. Without a clear understanding of how data is structured, there is no reliable way to derive meaning from it. Data Architecture drives the design and governance of data systems, and thus should be of interest to any data professional. Data Architecture provides the blue-prints that we all share, whether we be DBAs, data integration developers, database developers, data warehousing professionals, data presentation developers or client-side application developers persisting data for later retrieval.

The PASS Data Architecture Virtual Chapter will focus on data architecture concerns as they impact users, developers and DBAs on the Microsoft SQL Server platform. We want to make data architecture accessible to all data practitioners, and drive the point home that Data Architecture is a set of practices and a body of knowledge that overlaps almost all database professionals to some degree.
