Learn to master the numerous aspects of Performance Tuning & Optimization from this essential video guide. Multimedia course makes learning Performance Tuning easy through the use of extensive practical, real-world ( a table with over 7 million rows used for demonstration) exercises structured around every component within Management Studio, SQL Server Profiler and other sophisticated tools. Learn Performance Tuning from a comprehensive perspective. Start with techniques to detect performance problems and to configure SQL Server 2005 to 24/7 continuous diagnostics. Understand how performance tuning fits into the different stages of a projects life cycle. Identify the most common issues DBAs face day to day and provide solutions which actually work in enterprise environments to resolve common and specialized problems to optimization issues. Study performance problems that have been introduced by the new features of SQL Server 2005 which can enhance developer productivity but reduce performance. See live demonstration of how to detect and improve the performance of poorly performing queries. Expand your knowledge on high performance table design, index architecture and maintenance, query filtering, sorting, operators, conditionals, joins, cross apply operator, aggregate grouping functions, correlated subqueries and stored procedure optimization. Study transaction isolation levels, locking, blocking and deadlocks. Master the use of troubleshooting, tuning and monitoring tools. (See full list below).
