Are Your Indexes Helping You or Hurting You?

Jes Borland, Consultant Brent Ozar Unlimited

Queries need your help! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make great decisions about what indexes are best for your workload. In this session, we'll review the difference between clustered and nonclustered indexes, show when to use included columns, understand what sargability means, and introduce statistics. You'll leave this session with the ability to confidently determine why - or why not - SQL Server uses your indexes.
