Scott Fallen Presents Getting Started With Execution Plans
Speaker: Scott Fallen, Sales Engineer SQL Sentry, LLC
Summary: Are you just breaking into the query tuning side of managing your SQL Servers? In this session, we will cover the basics you need to start leveraging execution plans as part of your tuning process. We will discuss how SQL Server creates and uses plans, and how to collect them. Once we have the plans, we will go step-by-step through how to read them, and what the most common operators mean. We will look at the different types of operators not just from a standpoint of what they do, but how they can impact query performance. We will also cover how good database design and maintenance allow you to get better execution plans through having the right indexes and up-to-date statistics.
