6:20 - 7:35pm 'Why are we Waiting..'  Neil Hambly

An in-depth session {PASS Summit 2011, 300+ attendees} examining "Waits" happening in your SQL Servers, using the well-known "Waits & Queues" methodology.



With particular focus in the session on understanding and interpreting the information found the (DMV) sys.dm_os_wait_stats, taking note of which “Waits “with the highest counts or excessive wait times, as well as those which “Waits” can be safely ignored,

We can discover those "performance hurdles" and ways to overcome or remove them, restoring your SQL Servers performance levels.

By using established methodologies like “Waits & Queues”, we can systematically identify and remove performance hurdles; to do this we must have a way to interpret this wait information, the session will incorporate demos based on real-world examples to illustrate how to find those "Waits" that cause the degrading of performance levels in your SQL Servers – can you afford not to know this information?
