Build a SQL Server Performance Dashboard from Scratch - for Free

For free, using tools we already know and use daily, and with some help from a free dashboard, expose the secrets that SQL Server has been hiding from us. Visualize the bottlenecks long bedeviling your SQL Server instances, and start drilling into the improvements required to deliver the performance your management has always dreamed of. Did I mention this was all free? And that you already know (most of) the tools required to build it? This presentation is built from the actual tools used to diagnose and improve an on-line system who's performance was critical to the business success. After attending this session you will be able to quickly implement your own performance dashboards with the tools provided, and extend them to identify the unique challenges facing your environment.
