SQL Tuning Fundamentals: Execution Plans - September 17 Webinar

Register now and join me for my next webinar entitled "SQL Tuning Fundamentals: Execution Plans".

Few tools are as critical to SQL optimization as the execution plan. The ability to read and understand an execution plan allows us to evaluate and optimize SQL performance. Unfortunately, complex plans often seem daunting and can be difficult to understand. During this webinar, I'll walk you through a set of guidelines for how to read an execution plan and how to make sense of the operations and statistics (both estimated and actual) the plan output provides.

Topics covered in this webinar include:

  • How to read an execution plan, and how various plan operations work 
  • How to use the plan to pinpoint performance problems 
  • Tools to accelerate your analysis of execution plan data
