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!
