Featured Presentation

Execution Plans: The Secret to Query Tuning Success

Speaker: Jes Borland, Software Engineer Microsoft

Summary: SQL Server will tell you exactly what ingredients it used and steps it took to return the results of your query. By being able to read this "recipe", you can tell where you can improve it! This session will show you how to read execution plans, what common problems can be uncovered, and what the execution plan doesn't tell you. You'll leave this session able to go to work, open a plan, and identify where to start fine-tuning the query.
