SQL Server Extended Events

Microsoft is deprecating Trace and Profiler, a staple for monitoring SQL server since forever, in favor of Extended Events, introduced in SQL 2008. Monitoring of some of the new features like AlwaysOn Availability Groups in SQL 2012, and a lot of additional features/options that hitherto weren't easily accessible with Trace and Profiler are only available through XEvents. Come see the new functionality and how you can take advantage.
