DMV's and t-sql for the DBA

The Rocky Mountain Tri-Fecta was today and I had the opportunity to speak.  I mentioned to those brave souls who attended my session that I would post the slide deck and the demo’s.

Feel free to download them (links are at the end of this post) and provide your comments / thoughts.

I had a great time attending the event and I learned a great number of things.  A special thanks to everyone involved with putting this together.  I’m sill amazed and the stacks of empty pizza boxes.  WOW!

Part of this post is also to ask the readers of this blog if they would be interested in checking out a new tool that I’ve been testing over the last couple of months.  It’s formally known as SmartMon and it provides a form of pattern analysis against the data looking for anomalies and patterns of similar behavior.  It has decreased the amount of time that I spend doing analysis on perfmon files by many factors.  It’s a great tool and the guys building it are stand up guys in the San Jose, CA area.  If you are interested in becoming one of the first handful of people to see the release of this product, e-mail feedback@perfmonanalysis.com.  Please mention that I referred you.

Without further ado, enjoy the SQL and thanks again for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned with all of you.
