At the 2014 PASS Summit in Seattle on Tuesday November 4, Denzil Ribeiro and I (Tim Chapman) will be giving a Pre-Conference seminar entitled “Troubleshoot Customer Performance Problems like a Microsoft Engineer.” In this full-day session Denzil and I will cover a plethora of troubleshooting tools and methodologies that we use as field engineers when confronted with challenging performance related issues. The first few hours of the day will be spent on covering troubleshooting tools and methodologies such as wait statistics, extended events, using PSSDiag and SQL Nexus. The rest of the day will be spent re-living some of these challenging performance issues and how to resolve them.
This will be a day focused on SQL Server internals as they relate to performance troubleshooting. It will be a fast-paced and fun day. Expect a lot of interaction (and if we do our job correctly - a good deal of learning new things).
We hope to see you there!
