Your job is making SQL Server go faster, but you haven’t been to a performance tuning class since 2016 came out. You’ve heard things have gotten way better with 2016 and 2017, but you haven’t had the chance to dig into the new plan cache tools, DMVs, adaptive joins, and wait stats updates.
In one fun-filled day, Brent Ozar and Erik Darling will future-proof your tuning skills. You’ll learn our most in-depth techniques to tune SQL Server leveraging DMVs, query plans, sp_BlitzCache, and sp_BlitzFirst. You’ll find your server’s bottleneck, identify the right queries to tune, and understand why they’re killing your server. Can’t upgrade to 2016? We’ll even show you memory grant and compilation tracking tricks that work in newer service packs for 2012 and 2014.
This is not an introductory class: you should have 2-3 years of experience with SQL Server, reading execution plans, and working on making your queries go faster.
This is a live online class. We host it in GoToWebinar, live with Brent Ozar and Erik Darling on webcam, with a 90-minute lunch break. Audio can come through either your computer audio, or by dialing into a US phone number – headset recommended either way. For more information, check out the Training Logistics PDF for our online classes.
Instant Replay Access – you can stream a recorded version of your class for one year. The recordings will be available here online one week after your class finishes. It’s the best of both worlds: live training with great Q&A, plus the ability to brush up over time.
