You've been performance tuning queries and indexes for a few years, but lately, you've been running into problems you can't explain. Could it be RESOURCE_SEMAPHORE, THREADPOOL, or lock escalation?
SQL Server and Azure are built for each other. New hybrid scenarios between on-premise SQL Server and Azure mean they don't have to exclude each other but instead you can have the best of both worlds, reducing operational costs.
Learn about the component of Power BI and best practices for implementations
Come learn how to make your BI projects perform at their max!!
Sometimes this happens. What you expect not always what you received. In this session, we will look at a bunch of such situations.
Azure SQL Database built-in intelligence features will help you improve performance and security of your database and dramatically reduce the overhead of managing thousands of databases.
Is your data badly behaved and embarrassing you? Are you tired of cleaning up its messes? Constraints can help you straighten out your wayward data and put it on the right path before it gets into too much trouble.
Ensure your indexes are achieving their fullest potential!
The SQL team has been working on next-gen query processing improvements to improve the performance of your queries and to enable new scenarios. This talk will explain these enhancements and how they fit into the overall product roadmap for SQL.
Indexes are essential to good database performance, but it can be hard to decide what indexes to create. In this session we'll look at the design considerations for clustered indexes and for nonclustered indexes.
Not every workload can benefit from In-Memory tables. Memory Optimized Tables are not a magic bullet that will improve performance for all kinds of transactional workloads. This session gives you the details you need.
With increasing speed in relational query execution classical analytical solutions get challenged more and more. Why loose time for processing data into multi-dimensional databases? Why analyze outdated data if you can have fresh data instead?
SQL Server normally relies on concurrency models in order to maintain the Isolation in ACID. As systems scale, this method can go from being a benefit to a hindrance, limiting the concurrency for our applications and hurting performance.
In this session we will learn about SQL Server enhancements in the most recent versions that can help you troubleshoot query performance.
A query was running fast yesterday and today it suffers from performance problems. What will you do? - restart the server (did work) - drop the procedure cache (read in a blog article) - get a coffee and pass in review this session about statistics
Martin Wild of Quest Software will lift the lid on SQL Server on Linux. He will explore the mechanics to deploy SQL Server on Linux, what is and is not in the current Linux build and share some of quirks, and observations on setup and config.
In this session you will get a brief introduction to the basic principles of Master Data Services, together with an overview of all the new features brought to you with Master Data Services 2016.
Learn about the powerful 8600 series of trace flags which additional details about how the query optimizer behaves as it processes a query.
In this session we will show you how Tabular performs when you are querying a model with many billions rows, conduct a complete analysis of the model searching for optimization ideas and implement them on the fly, so to look at the effect of using th
