First Online Open for All Class: SQL Server Performance Tuning Practical Workshop for EVERYONE – April 23, 2019

I have been delivering SQL Server Performance Tuning Practical Workshops for various organizations and it has been an extremely popular class so far. I receive lots of requests for me to deliver it for individuals. The only reason that I have never scheduled it for individuals was the content of the class was customized carefully for a specific organization. However, I believe it is now time for me to announce that this class is available to everyone.

Important Update: The Workshop is now over and it was one of the landmark workshops, where I shared business secrets of successful Performance Tuning Expert. You can watch the recording of the workshop for a limited period of time.

Date and Time

April 23, 2019, Tuesday 8:00 AM Pacific Time | 11 AM Eastern Time
Duration of the class is 4 Hours and 30 minutes

Agenda of Training Day

This class is built on my most popular content which I have been delivering for many years.

The training is divided into four major parts.

Module 1: Indexing, Worst Practices, and Solutions (70 minutes)

Indexes are often considered a silver bullet to solve performance problems, but the reality is far from the age-old myth. The right index can help improve performance, but the wrong indexes often play party spoiler and reduce your server’s performance. Identifying which indexes to create and which indexes to delete can be cumbersome (or near impossible) if we do not know how to do workload analysis.

In this module of the workshop, we will see some neat tricks related to how to create useful indexes which last longer. We will also build a preventive auto-healing system which can help you focus on more complicated performance issues.

Comfort break – 15 minutes

Module 2: WhichIndex – An Interactive Game with WHERE clause and Multi-Column Indexes (70 minutes)

WhichIndex is an interactive game that provides a new experience to teach you how to understand how multi-column indexes work with queries with multiple conditions.

This game follows the format of open book exams where every user starts with answers to the questions. Once we understand our solutions, we start our journey to this interactive game. At a different interval of this game, users have to answer the question WhichIndex to the quiz master.

In this self-scored game, the winner is the person who gets the most answers wrong. If you have not understood the basics of indexes and performance-tuning concept, you will solidify that concept while we play this game.

On a side note – cheating is not only allowed but is heavily encouraged as well!

At the end of this game, users will have an understanding of three essential rules related to Indexes, which you will never forget.

Comfort break – 15 minutes

Module 3: Don’t Change Code – An Interactive Game with Functions, Views, and Indexes (50 minutes)

Any good singer needs the support of a decent sound system and cooperative band to be successful. Similarly, for any index to be successful it requires a supportive environment. It is incredibly critical to learn how index selection takes shape when functions are used in the query.

We start with a problem where there is a query and an index. The query is not using the index. The challenge which we have to solve in this game is to make the necessary modifications, so that our query uses our index. However, there is one condition – Don’t Change Code. We are not allowed to change the query.

While I struggle to solve this puzzle, your responsibility will be to help me out with various ideas and to help me honor the one condition of the game – Don’t Change Code.

The game is very fast paced but at every twist and turn we will take a few moments to understand the secrets of indexes.

Comfort break – 15 minutes

Module 4: Your Server, Your Questions

In the final part, we usually discuss the performance problems you are facing with your server personally. If you do not have additional questions, we usually spend the rest of the time looking at various real-world scenarios related to SQL Server Query Execution Plans and Performance. We often spend time discussing the following in this module:

  • Server Configurations for Performance
  • Instance Configuration for Performance
  • SQL Server DBCC Best Practices
  • Log Reviews (Windows Event Logs, SQL Server Error Logs and Agent Logs)
  • Hardware Discussions
  • Index Analysis and Optimization
  • I/O Distribution Analysis
  • Effective Query Writing
  • SQL Server Resource Wait Stats Analysis
  • SQL Server Best Practices

We will learn together, how to solve real-world performance problems systematically and scientifically.
