Common SQL Server Development Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

There are several ways to write code for SQL Server to accomplish a task, but are you always following best practices and producing the best code possible?

In this webcast we will look at ways to improve your SQL Server code and some approaches that can make a big difference in overall performance and maintainability. Some of the things we will look at include: use of cursors, missing indexes, use of temporary tables and a lot more.

Join us for this free webcast to learn how to avoid costly mistakes.

Speaker(s): John Miner is currently a Microsoft Technology Solutions Professional (TSP) advising North East District (NED) corporations on how to solve their business needs with data platform solutions. He has over twenty five years of data processing experience, and his architecture expertise encompasses all phases of the software project life cycle, including design, development, implementation, and maintenance of systems.

Troubleshooting SQL Server Performance Problems

The DBA may have many priorities, but performance is definitely way up there on top. No DBA can afford to ignore any issues, big or small, around performance. In the first part of this webcast, IT Pro’s senior contributing editor Michael Otey will show you how to troubleshoot some of the common SQL Server performance problems and will also showcase some of the recommended best practices for SQL Server performance. Some of the topics covered will include:

  • Identifying CPU, disk and memory bottlenecks
  • Using the wrong default configuration values
  • Handling Tempdb contention
  • Indexing mistakes
  • Identifying problem queries

Next, join industry expert Bill Ellis (insert title) as he demonstrates how IDERA Precise for .NET connects application transactions to SQL statements across the tightly coupled IIS / .NET / SQL Server stack. Bill will show you how to quickly isolate the cause of problems before they impair critical business processes. Attendees will learn how to correlate end-user transactions with their user sign-on IDs, URLs, application calls, databases, and storage devices. Bill will show how viewing the slowest executing service requests, SQL statements, and web services helps to separate the trees from the forest. Join this web seminar to learn how to identify class contention, report on exceptions thrown, and diagnose memory leaks as well as how to drill down to view application availability, average response time, number of invocations, and SLA compliance status.

How to Tune the Performance of SQL Server, Azure SQL Database and Amazon RDS

To improve the performance of SQL Server on-premises and in the cloud, it is critical to collect performance information, analyze it, and determine the resolution in minutes rather than hours. Such tasks benefit from leveraging proven industry best practices endorsed by SQL Server MVPs to analyze the performance and to provide recommendations.

In this webinar we will target some of the most common areas of performance categories, such as disaster recovery, index optimization, query optimization, disk, memory, network, processor, database configuration, server configuration, security, deadlocks, blocking processes, long running jobs, open transactions, and wait stats.

Join Tep Chantra as he demonstrates how IDERA SQL Doctor is a must-have time-saving tool for database administrators, developers, and analysts who need to maintain and improve database performance.

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.
