T-SQL user-defined functions may appear to be a good tool for code encapsulation and reuse, but they can have a dramatic impact on performance. In this session, you'll see why they slow down your queries, and how you can avoid this performance hit.
Learn in just a bit over an hour how to use CISL (open source Columnstore Indexes Library) for getting deep insights on the Columnstore Indexes and how to use its maintenance solution for keeping Columnstore Indexes performing at their maximum speed.
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 guidelines for index creation
Indexes are the best instrument for query optimization. But what kind of indexes and on what columns? The key to answering those questions is understanding how indexes are stored and used by SQL Server. And that is exactly what this session is about.
This session is a primer on column store indexes and SQL Server batch mode, it delves into the background behind the performance gains achieved by batch mode and includes demos on things that can be done to further enhance batch mode performance.
