Online End-user Experience Optimization Through Transaction Performance

Everyone runs to the DBA when there is a performance problem. It is not always the database. Precise can measure from click to disk, identifying and pinpointing the root cause of issues.

Online Protect Your Database: High Availability for High Demand Data

Your company’s data is mission-critical. While protecting it from outside attack or catastrophe has become a standard business requirement, it’s not enough these days to rely solely on simple backup and recovery techniques. Today’s enterprise requires high availability and uninterrupted operational performance, meaning the DBA toolbox must provide more than traditional solutions.

Register for this episode of Hot Technologies to hear from Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor and Data Scientist Dez Blanchfield as they discuss the necessary components of a modern solution architecture. They’ll be briefed by IDERA’s Oracle ACE Bert Scalzo, who will explain some innovative options for ensuring high availability in a demanding database environment.

Online Making SQL Server Queries Run Faster

Faster, faster! We all want our queries to run fast, but what are supposed to do to make that happen?

This presentation is about approaching query writing and tuning as a repeatable process. We'll start with some basic rules for writing good queries. From there we'll see how to measure the actual performance of the query in reads and duration, the best way to evaluate OLTP type queries. With a baseline determined for our query we can then review the query plan for the five most common causes of slow performance, make the relevant tuning fix, and then re-execute the query to see if we made things better or not.

Speaker(s): Andy Warren is a SQL Server consultant based in Orlando. Andy was a founding principal of SQLServerCentral.com, is the former President of the Orlando SQL Server Users Group, and one of the founders of SQLSaturday.

Online Explaining SQL Server Execution Plans

DBAs spend a lot of time trying to understand and improve query performance and index usage. Viewing an Execution Plan for SQL Server or an Explain Plan for Oracle can actually help to explain a lot in these situations, but using a SQL optimizing tool may be better for identifying areas for improvement.

In this session, IDERA's Scott Walz will discuss the value of Execution/Explain Plans and how to use them effectively. He will then show how the IDERA DBArtisan and DB Optimizer tools can help simplify using Execution Plans and improving database performance.

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CST
Online Advanced Web Monitoring Using Uptime Infrastructure Monitor

Many monitoring tools can tell you if a web page is up or if a web server responds. Fewer can tell you the CORRECT page came up without error. Even FEWER can tell you if: the webserver responded, the correct page came up, we were able to LOG IN, get to the page we want to monitor, and let you know nothing was too slow along the way. In this webinar, we'll show you how to monitor with synthetic transactions all the web pages you hold dear to your heart (or behind a log in form!).
