Controling and Reusing Query Plans
Friday, 16th November; 9.30am - 5pm.
Book here: http://sqlserverfaq.com/controls/event/eventbooking.aspx
This full-day seminar will cover techniques available for determining if, when and how you should override the optimizer’s choice of query plans. It will also cover how to determine if your plans are being reused, how you can determine if reuse is desirable for your queries, and how you can control query caching behavior.
Although the demonstrations will be run on SQL Server 2005, much of the information presented will relevant to SQL Server 2000 as well.
This seminar will cover the following topics:
• Tools for Analyzing Query Plans
• Plan Caching and Plan Cache Metadata
• Plan Reuse and Parameter Sniffing
• Managing Plan Cache and Preventing Cache Bloating
• Overriding the Optimizer
• Plan Guides
• Plan Management and Plan Caching Futures
One of the problems you often see with production systems is badly written queries that do not use the Procedure Cache effectively or through developers not understanding key concepts like Parameter Sniffing.
This seminar will give direct benefit to your existing and future SQL Server based solutions. For less than £200 you can gain valuable knowledge that can save you magnitudes more on reduced hardware costs and developer/support time.
To take advantage of the early bird you must book and make full payment before 26th October 2007.
Cost before 26th Oct is £150 ex VAT after it's £199 ex VAT; there are discounts for multiple places.
