Frontline Your Baseline: A Database Performance
Presented by Erin Stellato from Hyland Software
12/9/2010 5:45 PM

Database performance issues are like household emergencies. You never want to them happen, and when they do, you often don't have the tools necessary to resolve them. Unlike a homeowner, DBAs cannot rely on the Yellow Pages to find a Database Repairman. We must have a variety of methods to both prevent and fix problems. In this session we will cover the many tools and techniques available to SQL Server DBAs for capturing baselines, identifying warning signs and troubleshooting performance issues.
