SQL Server Performance Tuning: Plan Cache Analysis

The plan cache in SQL Server has a wealth of information available to assist developers and DBA’s with performance tuning. This session will show how to query the plan cache to find plan information and then how to parse the XML plans contained in the cache to identify missing indexes by query, high cost parallel queries with high usage counts, implicit column conversions caused by data type mismatches, and other interesting information about how queries have executed in the system.
