Webcast : Troubleshooting SQL Server Performance Problems

Presenter: Bill Ellis

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 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.
