Using Django to baseline and analyse Sql Server performance at Transport for London by Chris Wedgwood As a Sql Server DBA at Transport for London a big part of my job is analysing sql performance and ensuring our applications scale. There are third party tools you can pay lots of money to do database performance analysis but these are really expensive and sometimes there isn't the budget for this. I decided to make my own. The first challenge was capturing metrics and then the second challenge was having a web front end that can quickly show developers where their applications are hurting. In this talk I will outline the approach I have taken to achieve this and demonstrate how I incorporated Django.
