Topic: Identifying and Fixing Parameter Sniffing

Brent Ozar, Brent Ozar Unlimited 


You swear nothing changed - but suddenly your SQL Server has ground to a halt. Queries are slow across the board. You restart the server, rebuild indexes, or update statistics, and magically the problem goes away - but what really happened, and how do you fix it faster and more permanently?

About Brent:

Peter Shore

Infrastructure for the DBA: An Introduction

It doesn’t matter if you are a Junior DBA, an accidental DBA or all the way up to a Senior DBA, the infrastructure your SQL Server environment runs on is important.  Many among the DBA community came in as developers or perhaps directly into database administration roles it is equally possible that you have been out of the operations world long enough to have fallen out of the loop with what is happening.  This session is intended to provide a full stack infrastructure overview so that you can talk shop with your cohorts in operations to resolve issues and maybe even be proactive.  We will discuss, in an introductory fashion, hardware, network, storage, virtualization and operating system layers.  Additionally, some suggestions as to where to find more information will be provided.

Peter is a seasoned IT professional with over 20 years experience.  He spent his career on the infrastructure side of the house until taking the intentionally accidental DBA plunge in 2013.  Peter is comfortable working with both physical and virtual servers where he tries to apply best practices to attain performance improvements.  He is also adept at bridging the gap between technical and business language in order to bring technology solutions to business needs.
