Extended Events was released with SQL Server 2008, and almost 10 years later, many data professionals are still clinging to Profiler. It's time to move forward, and in this session I'll show you how.
Bye #TeamProfiler and hi #TeamXEvents with the power of dbatools
In this session we will see how the Extended Events streaming API can be used to process events in a near real-time fashion. We will demonstrate how this technology enables new possibilities to solve real world problems.
You're a DBA who's struggled with Perfmon metrics and Profiler. You're facing a sea of confusing numbers, and you don't know where to focus first. Microsoft Certified Master Brent Ozar will give you a friendly introduction to wait statistics.
Extended Events are replacing the old SQL Trace & Profiler, and there are many good reasons for that. In this session I want to demonstrate to you some of the best features and possibilities of this Tracing Framework.
This session will give you insight into both of the current tracing technologies in SQL Server. Old SQL Trace has served us well but new times call for new technology. The new Extended Events are a new lightweight tracing mechanism built into SQLOS.
Extended Events made its appearance in SQL Server 2008, but in SQL Server 2012, the number of lightweight events have been expanded. After a quick review of how Extended Events work, I’ll cover the enhancements in detail.
Learn to create and customise TSQL scripts for capturing SQL Profiler data in a server side trace. Examine methods for stopping, starting and storing these traces, and finally look at free tools available for analysing the captured data.
PowerPivot can be a great troubleshooting / performance tuning tool for a dba besides just loading all the data in a database and start querying. I'll show the pro's and cons of PowerPivot while trying work with waitstats, profiler data etc.
An introduction to LINQ covering what it is, why people choose to use it, and how you can help your developers when troubleshooting and performance tuning as you previously did through stored procedures.
