Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.
Whew! Another TechEd session completed, and now I'm done for the week. Thanks to everyone who joined me today; I had a fantastic time talking about the ins and outs of Extended Events. Demos are attached. I realize how complex some of these topics are, so please feel free to drop me a note in the comments here with any questions or concerns. Also stay tuned--I'm continuing to work with and improve these samples and will be publishing updates from time to time in the coming months.
