November User's Group Meeting

  • In-Person @ 2505 Technology Circle Bentonville, Arkansas, United States (map)
  • 11:30 - 13:00 (UTC-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)
  • Language: English

Please join us for the final User's Group meeting of 2017.  In fact, with our winter break, our next meeting won't be until Valentine's Day, 2018.

However, we will be going out with a bang:  This month's speaker is none other than Paul Randal, who has been so kind in making up a date with us that he had to cancel earlier in the year, due to an injury.  Paul will be presenting his "Performance Troubleshooting Using Wait Statistics" talk.

Space is extremely limited this month, with only 20 seats available, so please RSVP as soon as possible if you intend to be present.

Lunch will be provided, and is sponsored this month by Tyson Foods.  Please have a look at their current career openings: https://www.tysonfoodscareers.com/Professional/Search-for-Careers.aspx

Featured Presentation:

Performance Troubleshooting Using Wait Statistics

Paul Randal, CEO and Owner SQLskills.com

One of the first things you should check when investigating performance issues are wait statistics - as these can often point you in the direction for further analysis. Unfortunately many people misinterpret what SQL Server is telling them and jump to conclusions about how to solve the problem - what is often called 'knee-jerk performance tuning'. In this session, you will learn what waits are, how to analyze them, and potential solutions to common problem patterns.

About Paul:
Paul’s an author, consultant, and top-rated speaker having spoken at PASS, TechEd, SQLintersection, and numerous other events around the world. He spent 9 years working on the SQL Server team, writing DBCC CHECKDB, and ultimately responsible for the entire Storage Engine. In 2007 Paul left Microsoft to co-own and run SQLskills.com, and has been a SQL Server MVP ever since. When he's not tweeting, blogging, or helping someone recover from a disaster, he's likely to be underwater somewhere in the world with his wife, Kimberly L. Tripp. Full bio at http://www.sqlskills.com/about/paul-s-randal/
