Why should I care about the plan cache?

Why should I care about the plan cache?

SQL Server is a huge product, with many different places a DBA can go to look for information on how the server is performing. So many, in fact, that they can often overlap, which sometimes makes it hard to understand why tackling a new tool is worth the effort. In this first (and hopefully not last) installment of Rick Lowe's "Why should I care" series, a case is made for why working knowledge of how to query the plan cache is critical for performance tuning efforts in real world environments. It will be followed by a review of relevant DMV's for the newly motivated audience.
