CACTUSS North - January 15 - Performance Tuning for Pirates

This month we are pleased to announce John Sterrett will be presenting. John has recently moved to the area and is now a member of CACTUSS so come on out and welcome him.

Performance Tuning for Pirates

If you follow baseball you will notice that the Pittsburgh Pirates (this speaker's favorite team) has to do more with less to be successful. This trend can also exist within IT shops. If you need to improve the performance of your SQL Server instances and cannot purchase 3rd party tools this session is for you. You will learn how to improve your performance tuning process by using several free tools. This session will cover wait stats, dynamic management objects, perfmon, PAL, SQL Trace, ClearTrace, SQL Nexus and SQLDiag. 

John Sterrett has been active within the SQL Server community. He is a PASS Regional Mentor for the South Central Region, co-founded the West Virginia SQL Server User Group and hosted two PASS SQL Saturday events in West Virginia. John has presented at several SQL Server events including PASS SQLRally Orlando, PASS Summit 2011, SQL Server 2010 Member Summit, many PASS SQL Saturday events, code camps, and, user groups. John is a syndicated blogger at SQLServerPedia, contributes tips at MSSQLTIPS.
