Steel City SQL August Meeting

leave a comment »

Join us on Tuesday the 25th at New Horizons Computer Learning Center for the August meeting of Steel City SQL featuring Dean Richards, Senior DBA at Confio Software, presenting on Wait-Time Based SQL Server Performance Management.  Using Wait Time Analysis and Wait Types is a newer method for tuning SQL Server instances.  As a result, there is often confusion on exactly what the data means.  The issue typically centers around the fact the wait time data is analyzed at the wrong level or the collected wait time data is not detailed enough.  This presentation will focus on these problems and review several real-life case studies of using SQL Server Wait Type data coupled with Wait-Time based performance analysis to solve the most difficult performance related issues.

Dean has over 20 years of Oracle and SQL Server project development, implementation and strategic database architecting.  Before coming to Confio, Dean held engineering positions at McDonnell Douglas and Daugherty Systems, an object-oriented solution provider for Anheuser-Busch.  Dean was also a technical director for Oracle Corporation managing all aspects of their broadband account including short and long-term technical planning and strategic alliances.  As a highly successful liaison between management and technical staff, Dean has proven to be an effective collaborator implementing cutting-edge solutions. 

As usual the meeting will begin at 6:00pm with a thirty minute networking session with Dean’s presentation will begin at 6:30pm.  Food and beverages for the month’s meeting will be sponsored by Confio Software.  If you plan on attending this month’s meeting let us know by sending us an RSVP so we can get an accurate headcount for the food.  Hope to see you there.
