CAST([Transaction Log] as T.SQL)

The aim of this session is to take the audience in a quest for the original (or equivalent) T-SQL, that was in the origin of the different transactions recorded, by inspecting the transaction log records and dissecting its data. In a session that tackles several internals storage issues, needed to fulfill its objective, we will go in a travel that starts by the end of the log and will, hopefully, only end at the birth of the database.

By learning what the Transaction Log saves for each modification statement issued we, hopefully, will get a better understanding of how can we do more efficient code and measure the impact of some “innocent” operations. This knowledge may have direct applicability in day-to-day lives of DBAs by helping them to take the right decisions so that the log impact will be minimized and also by delivering another tool for the job that enables them to analyze database modifications.
