Performance Tuning for Race Car Drivers 4.95


Times are tough even for the best drivers: Helio Castroneves is dancing for money and Danica Patrick is doing ads for what appears to be an adult services company. Maybe it’s time to switch careers, and I have just the thing. Use your hard-earned knowledge of high speeds, million-dollar hardware and surviving disastrous crashes to become a SQL Server performance tuner!

In this session, I will show you:

  • Why Colin Chapman would check for indexes before adding new ones
  • The importance of well-tested safety gear to performance tuning
  • Why not monitoring your servers is like overdriving your headlights
  • Just like races are lost in the pits, uptime records are lost during maintenance windows
