SQLVacation - Raleigh, NC

You already know a thing or two about tuning a SQL query on Microsoft SQL Server. You can read an execution plan and know the most significant red flags to look for. And you have also learned about the important metrics revealed by features like the SET STATISTICS statements. But you want to take it up another level! First, we will time using undocumented trace flags to look at the steps of parsing, binding, and query optimization. Second, we will show how SQL Server builds internal memo structures and how SQL Server interrogates the heuristics of the optimizer search space. Finally, we will discuss a secret trace flag that gives the optimizer more time to produce alternative execution plans for queries that push the boundaries of extreme database processing.

Webinar - SQL Sentry Presents: More or Faster or Right sizing your CPUs for success! with Ben DeBow

Today’s processors are more powerful and the number of cores keep increasing but how does the DBA determine the amount of compute a SQL Server requires for a specific workload? How do you know when an existing system needs additional compute especially in today’s virtual world? The other challenge when answering these questions is that the SQL Server workload is dynamic, complex, and every changing. In this webinar, we will start by focusing on how to right size the compute for your SQL Server workloads and stay ahead of the game and reduce licensing. The other focus is how to determine when you have a CPU bottleneck and whether or not faster cores or more cores will solve the issue.
