In this session we will look at some of the practices that you shouldn't follow when developing a SQL Server database. We will cover items such as query design, table design, indexes, constraints and more. After this session you will have some practices that you know you should avoid in your SQL Server database if you want the best performance. If you have them you will know what you need to do to resolve them.
Some tips and tricks which I have picked in my last few projects which can help you optimize cube design , optimize query and processing performance .
DAC(Data Tier Applications) a new feature introduced in SQL Server 2008 R2, learn how this new feature can fit into your database deployment lifecycle strategies, monitor the health & performance of your DAC applications using Utility Explorer
The technique of Recency Frequency Intensity/Monetary is a powerful analytical technique for identifying data patterns as well as business performance. An introduction to the technique will be given, however the main focus of the session will be on demonstrating on how RFI/M can be performed using a number of SQL features such as Data Windowing, the OVER clause and PARTITION BY, CROSS APPLY and Common Table Expressions and how you can nest the table expressions. The session should be of benefit to both inexperienced and experienced SQL coders and analysts, each construct will be explained as well as the query plans produced. Demo's will be done on AdventureWorks which we actually discover is going out of business!
attend this session to understand exactly how the optimiser decides on its plans
In this session with examples we will continue to cover how to identify inefficiencies in parallel query execution. Part I was presented during SQLBits VI in London, if you missed it, view the Webcasts @ http://webcast.sqlworkshops.com.
This session provides an overview of a recent customer engagement to investigate storage performance problems and evaluate potential solutions. The session include details on measuring performance of the existing storage solution, profiling SQL Server disk IO activity and tools to simulate load and evaluate performance.
An open forum panel discussion with members of the SQL Customer Advisory team.
See how the optimiser chooses the operators it does through real world examples.
A number of techniques have been discussed for scaling SQL Server on big-iron systems. Some apply to transaction processing, others to data warehouses. However there is very little available guidance on the impact of each for specific application characteristics. Learn which techniques are absolutely essential and which contribute a only few percent.
A look at the basics of CLR integration with SQL Server, focusing on the nuts and bolts of CLR objects, followed by some practical examples.
PANIC IN THE DATACENTER! Your databases are approaching - or surpassed - the Terrible Terabyte mark. You're pouring money into the SAN, but your data isn't pouring back out as fast as you want. You're terrified to DBCCs or index maintenance because everything takes forever, and you don't have big maintenance windows.
Need to eek out a bit more oomph from your dataflows. This session might be of some use.
Transaction Replication is a widely used feature in SQL Server though its internals are sparsely understood. In this session we will look under the hood and gain indepth understanding about Transactional Replication architecture and its corresponding components like logreader and distribution agents, Reader/Writer threads, etc. We will learn methods of identifying and monitoring replication latency and methods of troubleshooting and eliminating bottlenecks to improve Replication Performance.
An overview of some everyday TSQL tuning techniques.
SARGability relates to the ability to search through an index for a value, but many DB Pros don’t really get it – especially in regard to joins – leading to queries which don’t run as well as they should. No slides here, just demos...
