New Book on Professional SQL Server 2005 Performance Tuning Approaches the Subject From a Different Perspective

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c85071) has announced the addition of Professional SQL Server 2005 Performance Tuning to their offering.

This book approaches Performance tuning from a new perspective. It shows readers how to find performance problems, rather than assuming they already know what the problem is. As such there is more emphasis on diagnostics than in any competitive books. This book also takes a new approach in that we will discuss the limitations imposed on performance tuning by the different stages of a project's life cycle, and help the reader understand how this alters the performance tuning process.

We begin by covering aspects of general end-to-end application tuning (not specific to SQL Server), but then very quickly move to SQL Server specifics, starting with the high level stuff like the basic server resource counters for CPU, memory, and IO, then trying to find the slow queries by looking at SQL Wait types, and using Profiler to find long running, or blocked, or otherwise poorly performing queries. We then move on to demonstrate how to "fix" the performance of those poorly performing queries.

We also cover the different approaches the DBA might take depending on where the target system is in its lifecycle. This includes the things you can do with an application at the early stages of design (e.g., change pretty much anything from the schema on up, including specifying different hardware). We then cover the very different approach when working with a system running in production (mostly index tuning, some server config, limited T-SQL tuning, no schema changes).

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.

Dynatrace is an application performance management software company with products for the information technology departments and digital business owners of medium and large businesses. Building the Future of Monitoring with Artificial Intelligence. Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like "How is my application doing" but no idea how to get a proper answer.
