Sul canale SQLPASS TV, continua la pubblicazione delle sessioni erogate al PASS Summit 2011. Questa settimana è stata pubblicata la sessione “Query Tuning Mastery: Zen and the Art of Workspace Memory” tenuta da Adam Machanic.
As SQL Server professionals, we often think of memory in vague, instance-level terms: buffer pool, procedure cache, Virtual Address Space, and so on. But certain tasks require a more in-depth focus, and query tuning is one of them. Large, complex queries need memory in which to work –workspace memory– and understanding the how’s, when’s, and why’s of this memory can help you create queries that run in seconds rather than minutes. This session will teach you how to guide the query processor to grant enough memory for top performance, while also keeping things balanced for the sake of concurrency. You will learn advanced monitoring techniques, expert-level application of specialized query hints, and the memory internals needed to put it all together. If you work with large queries and are serious about achieving scalability and consistently great performance, you owe it to yourself to attend this session.
