2017 Kick off with Glenn Berry on Analyzing I/O Subsystem Performance

Our first meetup this year, and we start with a short presentation of the new board members as well as the old board members. Then, Glenn Berry of SQLSkills will present remote on Analyzing IO Subsystem Performance. Food and beverages will be provided :-)

Featured Presentation:

Analyzing IO Subsystem Performance.

Glenn Berry, Principal Consultant SQLskills

SQL Server is often I/O bound - but why? Do you feel lost when talking to your storage administrator? Are your storage subsystems like a mysterious black box where your databases live but you can’t go visit? This session will get you up to speed with the fundamentals of storage subsystems for SQL Server. You will learn about the different types of storage that are available, and how to decide what type of storage to use for different workload types. You will also learn useful tips and techniques for configuring your storage for the best performance and reliability. We’ll cover methods to effectively measure and monitor your storage performance so that you will have valuable information and evidence available the next time you have to discuss IO performance with your storage administrator. Come to this session to learn how to analyze I/Os as well as options to reduce the bottlenecks.
