Execution Plans in Depth

For troubleshooting slow queries, looking at the execution plan is a good starting point. But sometimes, just looking at the plan does not help. Sometimes you need to dig deeper.

In this full-day workshop, you will learn everything you need to be take your understanding of execution plans to the next level. For almost every operator you can encounter in an execution plan, we will look at the inner workings, and look at properties that can affect their performance. This will increase your understanding on why the optimizer picks a plan, and what you can do to make it pick a better plan.

Aside from explaining all of the common operator, we will also touch on several operators that were introduced or modified in the newer versions of SQL Server, and preview some enhancements that have been announced for future versions.

If you have seen some execution plans but feel you need to bring your understanding to the next level, then this workshop is for you.
