If you are in the Pittsburgh, PA area take a trip down to Wheeling, WV this Thursday to catch me at the WVPASS SQL Server User Group. Registration is free and there are a few free seats available. I will be breaking out a brand new presentation titled “Performance Tuning for Pirates.”
If you follow baseball you will notice that my favorite team the Pittsburgh Pirates has to do more with less to be successful. Working as a consultant, I have also noticed this trend with several IT shops. If you need to improve the performance of SQL Server and cannot purchase 3rd party tools this session is for you. I will help improve your performance tuning process while using several free tools. Through this presentation we will go over wait stats, dynamic management objects, perfmon, PAL, SQL Trace, ClearTrace, SQL Nexus and SQLDiag.
