  • PASS Summit 2014: Manhandling Parallelism - Demos

    Just a quick post to say thank you to everyone who attended today's Manhandling Parallelism talk! I hope you had even half as much fun as I did. For those of you who didn't attend, the talk was recorded and broadcast on ''PASS TV,'' and I'm sure it will be available somewhere soon for on-demand viewing. The demos are attached. Let me know in the ...

  • PASS Summit 2014 and the Contradiction of Long Running Things

    As database professionals, I find that one simple thing unites us in our mission, above all else: we absolutely hate long running things. I'm with you. I'm here for you. I want to help you reject long running things. PASS Summit 2014, the premier SQL Server conference of the year, is returning to Seattle this November. And I am returning to PASS ...

  • Query Performance and Parallelism Seminars in Boston and Chicago

    You're a DBA or database developer working on a big (or even big-ish -- doesn't have to be huge) database. Your end-users are doing all sorts of data analysis, and even though you have a pretty beefy server, your queries just don't seem to run as fast as they should. The reason (I bet)? Your queries aren't taking full advantage of the CPU power ...

  • Next-Level Parallel Plan Forcing: An Alternative to 8649

    ''Even experts with decades of SQL Server experience and detailed internal knowledge will want to be careful with this trace flag.  I cannot recommend you use it directly in production unless advised by Microsoft, but you might like to use it on a test system as an extreme last resort, perhaps to generate a plan guide or USE PLAN hint for ...

  • TechEd 2013: Demos for "Data, Faster: Microsoft SQL Server Performance Techniques with SQLCLR"

    Today at TechEd in New Orleans I delivered a breakout session entitled ''Data, Faster: Microsoft SQL Server Performance Techniques with SQLCLR.'' This session covered a number of techniques for using SQLCLR as a query tuning tool, especially for big, ugly, and heavily analytical queries. Thank you so much for all who attended and took the time ...

  • More Fun in Atlanta: Parallelism at SQL Saturday 220

    May 18, SQL Saturday returns yet again to the Atlanta area. At this point I've become a bit of a regular at Atlanta's events; this will be my third one in a row. The team that puts them together is amazing, and produces top quality, super fun and educational days every time. Plus: Taco Mac. Friday, May 17, the event is running a few ...

  • Query Tuning Mastery at PASS Summit 2012: The Video

    An especially clever community member was kind enough to reverse-engineer the video stream for me, and came up with a direct link to the PASS TV video stream for my Query Tuning Mastery: The Art and Science of Manhandling Parallelism talk, delivered at the PASS Summit last Thursday. I'm not sure how long this link will work, but I'd like to share ...

  • Query Tuning Mastery at PASS Summit 2012: The Demos

    For the second year in a row, I was asked to deliver a 500-level ''Query Tuning Mastery'' talk in room 6E of the Washington State Convention Center, for the PASS Summit. (Here's some information about last year's talk, on workspace memory.) And for the second year in a row, I had to deliver said talk at 10:15 in the morning, in a room used as ...

  • Recent Webcasts on Parallel Processing Available for Download

    While preparing the material for my PASS Summit post-con on parallelism and parallel processing I realized that I could easily take a few chunks out, modify them a bit, and create some nice standalone webcasts. So I did just that, and delivered two sessions, one for the PASS Performance Virtual Chapter and another for the PASS Application ...
