In this session, I will talk about the lessons we have learned and the methodology we follow when diagnosing and resolving issues with real customer workloads running on 64 and 128 logical cores
Here I share a checklist I created from my experience and theory designed to make sure we’re ready to put our business critical SQL Servers on a virtualised platform and are prepared for the next time we get a database performance issue.
The talk will go back to SQL Server 7.0 when we have introduced “parallel query” in SQL Server for the first time. Lubor will share our initial “parallelism” challenges and how this feature has been developing through the subsequent releases
Do you already wanted to know how SQL Server 2008 stores a database file physically on the hard drive? In this session you will learn the internal structure of a SQL Server 2008 database file.
Jon Reade examines the performance benefits of SSDs in a SQL Server environment.
Writing your first SSIS custom components can seem like a very steep learning curve. In this session i shall walk you through a simple skeletal one to start you on your way.
Building performant data flows takes more than just dragging a few boxes onto a design surface. In this session I'll demonstrate that SSIS perf tuning is less about fine-grained tweaks and more about designing packages correctly in the first place.
With SQL Server you can integrate traditional tools such as SQL profiler and performance monitor to pinpoint problems. With SQL Server 2008, you can control environments using Policy based management and with the Resource Governor. Chris will explore
