Geek Sync Webcast : How Index Optimization Impacts Memory in SQL Server

Presenter: Kendra Little

When we design indexes, we often think about speeding up a specific query. But index tuning is important for larger reasons, too: well tuned indexes reduce the memory footprint of your workload, allowing greater concurrency and scalability for your application.

Join IDERA and Microsoft Certified Master Kendra Little for this investigation into how the indexes selected by a query impact memory in multiple caches in SQL Server. You’ll learn what ‘Query Workspace Memory’ is, what it’s used for, and what goes wrong if a query doesn’t get the memory grant it needs. You’ll learn how this differs from the buffer pool memory used by the query, and how to measure the memory ‘footprint’ of a query with different indexes.

You’ll leave the session with a checklist of patterns to identify while you optimize indexes and improve memory usage for your top queries.
