Troubleshoot Customer Performance Problems Like a Microsoft Engineer

Performance troubleshooting is arguably one of the most difficult aspects of being a database professional. Hardware and software continually get better, but data size and complexity continues to grow at an exponential rate. As a Microsoft SQL field engineer, I service the largest customers in the world and see, troubleshoot, and fix challenging performance problems. Join SQL Server Microsoft Certified Master and Senior PFE Tim Chapman as he tackles various challenging customer scenarios he's encountered. The session will start with developing a general performance troubleshooting methodology, which will include topics such as wait statistics, extended events, perfmon, DMVs, pssdiag, SQL Nexus. We will cover hands-on troubleshooting of real performance problems. Scenarios will relate to SQL Server 2008 - 2012 including how some of these are alleviated in SQL 2014.
