IO, IO! Why is my SQL so slow?Register Here

Disk I/O can be a significant performance bottleneck for SQL Server. And when physical I/O is the suspected culprit, the first thought is to purchase more storage. But expensive hardware upgrades don’t necessarily ensure a faster database. So how do you determine how much I/O is contributing to poor performance? How can you assess the performance of a specific workload on different types of storage? And how do you decide which infrastructure is best for a specific storage solution?

Back by popular demand, please join database performance expert and SolarWinds Product Manager, Brian Flynn, for this live event to learn the fundamentals of SQL Server storage and how it impacts performance, including:

  • The difference between latency, throughput, IOPS, and how they relate
  • Performance characteristics of several storage solutions
  • Techniques for analyzing storage subsystem performance
  • And, how database design and infrastructure interact and impact performance and scalability

Stop the Guessing! Using Time-Based Analysis to Improve Oracle PerformanceRegister Here

Oracle DBAs often unknowingly include emotion and folklore into their performance analysis. Unless you have a quantitative approach, your analysis will always be subjective, and may even miss the root cause of performance issues. In this live webinar event, you will learn:

  • How to set up and perform a time-based analysis
  • Where to get performance data
  • How to construct your diagnosis framework
  • How to derive targeted performance solutions

Armed with this time-based approach, you will be able to truly remove the guessing from your performance work. We will also explore how SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer can improve your time-based performance analysis.

Please join Craig Shallahamer, renowned Oracle performance expert, Oracle ACE Director, author, speaker, and Janis Griffin, Senior DBA and Sales Engineer at Solarwinds, for this informative and dynamic live webinar to learn how time-based performance analysis can transform your approach to performance tuning.

The Real SQL Server 2014 Power Feature (It May Not Be Hekaton)Register Here

The SQL Server 2014 feature that promises the greatest impact on performance—and not always for the best—isn’t Hekaton or SSD caching or Azure integration. For many, the new SQL Server 2014 Cardinality Estimator (CE) will prove more helpful than all these other features. For others, the new CE may actually hurt performance. To ensure that applications run at peak performance after upgrading to SQL Server 2014, you must understand: 1) How, why, and when SQL Server uses statistics, 2) When and where the new CE will be useful (or harmful) and 3) How to quickly verify the differences between the legacy CE and the new CE for any query. Attend this session with Thomas LaRock, Microsoft MVP and SolarWinds Head Geek, to learn how to prepare for the changes with SQL Server 2014 Cardinality Estimator and ensure your upgrade delivers the most benefit. See Questions and Answers from the August 27 live event.

Charting the Smart Path to Scalable, High Performance Cloud ApplicationsRegister Here

As a Cloud provider, you may have just three seconds to keep a transaction--and a customer. And at least 70% of slow application performance issues is caused by the database tier. Simply throwing more hardware at the problem is expensive and doesn’t guarantee faster performance. Instead, Cloud business success demands clear understanding of the root cause of slow application performance and the role that the database plays in it. Armed with the right information, you can act quickly to address the issues that have the greatest impact on end-user experience. Join industry analyst Jeff Kaplan of the Cloud Computing Showplace and THINKStrategies for this live presentation. You’ll learn best practices for effectively scaling your SaaS IT infrastructure by optimizing applications for top performance.

The Storage Administrator & The DBA – A Love StoryRegister Here

When database performance slows, and the end users are rioting, the finger of blame often points at the storage infrastructure – which sparks an argument between the storage administrators and the DBA. The problem escalates because storage admins and DBAs speak different languages and use different monitoring tools. They lack visibility into each other’s worlds. It’s difficult to get to the root cause of the problem without a holistic view into the database and the storage infrastructure, so typically the solution is to over-provision hardware and resources. This masks the real problem and wastes IT dollars. Sound familiar? Please join George Crump, founder of Storage Switzerland and leading storage analyst, and Thomas LaRock, Sr. DBA, performance expert, and Head Geek at SolarWinds to learn how to assess the role storage plays in database response time, how to determine exactly where your IO contention is, and what types of hardware upgrades might be appropriate to address your issues. Most importantly, you will learn how to storage admins and DBAs can work together to fix problems and not just throw hardware at them.  See Questions and Answers from the June 4th live event

Optimizing T-SQL for Faster SQL Server PerformanceRegister Here

CPUs are running faster now than ever before, solid-state drives are replacing spinning disks, and database servers have terabytes of RAM. And yet we still suffer from poor database performance. Why? Because a poorly written query will bring even the best hardware to its knees. For truly great performing systems there is no substitute for properly written queries and designed indexes. And for this, we rely on the skills and expertise of DBAs and database developers. Join Microsoft SQL Server Certified Masters, Tim Chapman and Thomas LaRock to learn how to spot common query performance killers and what you can do to make queries execute as fast as possible. See Questions and Answers from the January 29 live webinar.

SQL Server Performance Tuning Secrets RevealedRegister Here

Secret #1. Stop staring at that dashboard. You won’t find the answer there.
The cause of any performance degradation can be a combination of a dozen issues… or just one. But DBAs can’t waste time poking around trying to find a needle in a haystack. In fact, without using the proper tools 80% of the mean time to problem resolution is spent identifying the cause and only 20% is spent solving the issue. So how do the top SQL performance experts approach a problem? The key is root-cause analysis. Please join database performance expert, Jeff Garbus, as he shares dozens of real-life case studies to help illustrate his root cause analysis process and tuning techniques. See Questions and Answers from the December 11 live webinar.

Oracle Standard Edition: A Smart, Cost Effective Alternative to Enterprise EditionRegister Here

Standard Edition (SE) is sometimes the neglected little brother of Enterprise Edition (EE). Sure, EE offers the maximum features and capabilities, but it also comes with a price tag. Where does it make sense to consider SE? SE still runs on the same core database. It provides High Availability (HA) solutions as well as the capacity for a robust Disaster Recovery (DR) environment. It is even possible to use Oracle RAC, and combined with a standby database, you can implement a powerful solution. Plus, there is the advantage of lower licensing cost. Whether you are a small business or enterprise, Oracle Certified Master Anton Els will help you understand the differences between the two and where it makes sense to consider using SE in your environment.
