Transaction Log Performance

One of the most misunderstood parts of SQL Server is its logging mechanism. The fact that the transaction log exists and can cause problems if not managed correctly seems to confound many DBAs and developers. How can transaction log performance be monitored and improved? Why does it take so long for operations involving the log? In this in-depth session Paul will discuss the performance issues that can be caused by the transaction log and what you can do to detect and alleviate them.

Common SQL Server Mistakes

Making mistakes is natural, but learning from them and avoiding them in future takes effort. There's no substitute for experience or the shared wisdom of others to help you learn what mistakes to avoid. In this session, Tim will share with you a ton of what he's learned over the years from working and consulting at multiple Fortune-level companies. You'll hear about real-world environments he has worked on where there was a high impact from administrators making mistakes in how SQL Server was configured and administered. You'll learn many proven and accepted best practices for installing, configuring and supporting SQL Server to help your environment run as smoothly as possible and you'll leave with a checklist of items to take home to make sure your SQL Server environment is configured properly.
