Extended Events offer a refreshing new way of troubleshooting problems with SQL Server 2008. This session will focus on how to create custom sessions using the available events, targets and actions available in the Extended Events metadata. It will cover how to use the default system_health session to perform initial troubleshooting, as well as how to use the Extended Events Manager to simplify creating Extended Event Sessions and accessing the information captured in the session targets.
