Perth .NET UG Meeting: Friday, Oct 2nd: Introduction to the SQL Server 2008 Data Collector - Brad McGehee

We are fortunate to have Brad McGehee present two sessions while he is in Perth. The second session is "Introduction to the SQL Server 2008 Data Collector". In previous versions of SQL Server, performance tuning was often difficult because the available tools weren't always easy to use or interpret. In SQL Server 2008, Microsoft is introducing the Performance Data Collector. This comprehensive new toolset has been designed to integrate the collection, analysis, troubleshooting, and persistence of SQL Server diagnostic information, making the jobs of DBAs much easier.

  • DATE:   Friday, Oct 2nd, 5:30pm - 7:00pm
  • VENUE: Excom, Ground Floor, 23 Barrack Street, Perth
