Featured Presentation

SQL Server Waits reveal which of your statements most need tuning

Speaker: Trent Mera DELL

Summary: Trent will discuss wait state analytics and how to find which statements hitting your SQL Server will give you the most benefit when tuned. Methods to find bottlenecks at both the server resource and individual statement level will be discussed. Native utilities for accomplishing this will be covered first, and then we will take a look at two Dell Software Tools that use these approaches: Spotlight on SQL Server and Performance Analysis for SQL Server.

About Trent: Trent Mera has been a Database Performance Systems Consultant with Quest and Dell Software for 8 years. He specializes in showing customers how to identify and resolve performance bottlenecks in their SQL Server systems. His experience prior to Quest and Dell includes 7 years as a Database Developer and Administrator in the Real Estate, Finance and Defense Industries.

Call for Speakers

Peter Palka is trying to put together a 6 month calendar of speakers and topics. Peter would like to start having two presentations per meeting. One topic could be a short 15 minute presentation and then the other could be a 60-90 minute topic. 

 If you have done something you think is noteworthy that others could benefit from, Peter would like to hear from you. He is willing to help you turn any ideas you have into a presentation. OASSUG is a user group, provided and supported by local area SQL Server users.

  Remember you don’t have to do a full-blown 90 minute presentation; even just a short presentation would be a great way to support our local SQL Server user group.
