What Just happened

A common question I get asked is ‘What happened to my database?’  Locking, resource utilisation, infrastructure, user-error and many other events can blip user experience of a database application.  But when something blipped, how do we find out what happened?


SQL Server is very good at telling you what is happening, but no so good at telling you what has been happening (although it is getting a lot better).  I’ll be talking about some of the methods and tools we can use to help answer this questions.

    I’m a talented multi-skilled IT professional with advanced skills in SQL server 2005/08 and 2012. I have many years experience in SQL design, administration, server consolidation and migration in large scale organisations. I have completed MCITP in database administration and development. My belief is that data is the critical element of an organisation and that a database must be effective, efficient and secure. I am an expert in information system holding a BSc(Hons) in computing and informatics. I currently work for an international organisation as their head DBA. My next aim is completion of MCSM  and to discuss a topic at SQLBits.
