Exploring SQL Server Internals through WinDbg & XPerf

Do you ever wanted to know how SQL Server internally works together with the Windows Operating System? If yes, then you are right in this session. In this session we will use WinDbg - the offical Microsoft Windows Debugger - and XPerf to dig into SQL Server to get a better understanding how SQL Server is internally implemented. In this session we will a deep dive into the internals of SQL Server. We will analyze a lot of different call stacks, and you will see how SQL Server implements things like Thread Scheduling, asynchronous I/O Completion Ports, and Memory Management from the OS perspective in combination with the implementation in SQL Server.
