I've spent over 10 years tuning SQL databases and I'm still learning new ways to tune my database. In this session we will look at how we can analyse queries and understand how they should perform, how they do perform and most importantly will your application scale when you get more than you and a tester using your application.

Query tuning comes down understanding resource usage. We will look at,

  • How to use Profiler
  • Understanding Query plans
  • Key monitors in System Monitor
  • Identifying Resource usage
  • How SQL Server uses resources internally
