How to Quickly Resolve Performance Problems for the IIS / .NET / SQL Server Stack

To quickly isolate the cause of problems before they impair critical business processes, it is important to work with the proper context. As such, you need to correlate end-user transactions with their user sign-on IDs, URLs, application calls, databases, and storage devices. Viewing the slowest executing service requests, SQL statements, and web services helps to separate the trees from the forest. You also need to identify class contention, report on exceptions thrown, and diagnose memory leaks. When drilling down, you need to view application availability, average response time, number of invocations, and SLA compliance status. It is also critical to fully manage the performance of .NET compatible stored procedures in SQL Server.

Join Bill Ellis as he demonstrates how IDERA Precise for .NET connects application transactions to SQL statements across the tightly coupled IIS / .NET / SQL Server stack.

How to Manage Database Changes For SQL Server

SQL Server database management encompasses numerous skill sets that administrators can't afford to ignore. However, administrators are quickly discovering that mastering those skill sets is becoming more complex, especially in cases where multiple servers, databases, and SQL Server versions are involved. That complexity is making chores that were once straightforward and simple much more difficult to accomplish.

Take, for example, the basic process of comparing and synchronizing databases to address changes in schemas and data–something that was relatively easily accomplished in the past in single server environments. However, once you add multiple servers, different versions, and extensive schema changes to the mix, what was once simple becomes far too complex and time-consuming to execute using scripts and bundled tools. The answer to that dilemma lies with tools that bring automation to administrators striving to effectively manage the lifecycle of a SQL Server database.

Join Frank J. Ohlhorst, Informa Subject Matter Expert, and Justin Wilkes as he demonstrates how IDERA SQL Comparison Toolset provides an intuitive interface to compare and synchronize schema and data, and automate such processes. You will learn more about:

Evolution of SQL Server
Statistics on what versions are in use
Key differences between versions and how they hinder transformation
The importance of efficiency and automation

Going Beyond SSMS with DBArtisan
Many DBAs use the Microsoft SSMS tool that comes with the SQL Server database, and it provides a lot of useful functions for managing a database. However, it does have limitations, and a tool like IDERA DBArtisan can complement the vendor tool with additional capabilities that provide deeper insights and features. Gary Smith will demonstrate some of the DBArtisan features not available in SSMS, such as space and capacity analysis, data source discovery, database searching, SQL agent alerts grid, SQL query building, code formatting, and scripting capabilities.

Automating Important Manual DBA Tasks
Today's database administrators have to keep their database platforms up to date and working smoothly. This often requires manual effort to perform certain tasks on a regular basis, sometimes daily or hourly. This can be more complicated when the same task needs to be done across multiple database platforms.

Join Bert Scalzo, Senior Product Manager at IDERA, as he demonstrates ways to automate those tedious and often time-consuming but very necessary DBA tasks.

How to Simplify Routine SQL Server Administration Tasks

Database administrators need simple, quick ways to manage their SQL Server environment. Routine administrative and troubleshooting tasks (such as figuring out why users cannot connect, moving databases, producing reports to show whether backups ran, finding rogue instances, and checking configurations) can be time-consuming and error-prone. That is especially true when such tasks involve developing, testing, and maintaining custom scripts. Join David Terry as he demonstrates how IDERA SQL Admin Toolset simplifies routine administrative, monitoring, reporting, and troubleshooting tasks.
