Webcast : IDERA Live | Be Proactive: A Good DBA Goes Looking For Signs of Trouble

Presenter: Eric Cobb

Database Administrators today seem to be busier than ever, and the last thing you need is to have to spend all of your time fighting fires. That is why taking a proactive approach to database performance and maintenance helps to keep you ahead of the “trouble” and prevent the little problems from turning into full blown emergencies. In this session we will look at routine database maintenance, as well as setting up SQL Agent alerts for corruption, resource issues, and fatal errors. We will also take a look at index analysis, identifying slow queries, and a few other things to help ensure that your databases are running smoothly.
