Triangle SQL Server User Group Meeting

Demystifying Performance Monitoring

This session breaks down the core aspects of SQL Server when it comes to potential performance bottlenecks and performance monitoring. You will see exactly how easy it is to identify the bottlenecks and poor performing queries without requiring an extensive infrastructure.  And more importantly you will come to understand how to determine the proper course of actions to correct them.  Too many DBA’s lack the confidence to make the right choices when combating performance problems due to a lack of understanding of these key aspects of SQL Server.  Don’t let performance issues get the best of you. Come see how to better utilize your precious time.


1.  Please join my meeting.

2.  Use your microphone and speakers (VoIP) - a headset is recommended.  Or, call in using your telephone.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
