John Sterrett, Principal Consultant Procure SQL LLC
We might know how to tune a query for optimal performance or create additional indexes to ensure faster execution, but how do we ensure that our changes don’t hurt our total workload? Do we know if the new 3rd Party application upgrade will make performance better or worse? Do we know if your application can scale due to unexpected stress? In this session, we will go over a process used to tune a workload and answer the common questions above. In this presentation we will also use RML Utilities to answer these questions and even give you a little insight into how you can document these changes to help you get that next raise.
