What you will learn

  • SQL Server waits and wait types
  • Troubleshooting latch waits
  • Query plan optimisation and execution

The following tools are demonstrated throughout the workshop that are key to fast analysis and resolution:

  • PSSDiag and Perfstats for data collection
  • SQLNexus for data analysis

Full instruction is given in how to configure and run these tools in your own environment.
