IEQUERY: Immersion Event on Fixing Slow Queries, Inefficient Code, and Caching/Statistics Problems

Live Online: October 23-25, 2018


This 100-300 level, live, online training course will give anyone that works with SQL Server a better understanding of how to analyze and troubleshoot poor query performance. The first problem people tend to have is understanding where to find performance data and how to evaluate a query’s plan. To understand this better, Erin will spend the first day showing how to capture query information, and then how to evaluate, understand, and analyze the many aspects of a plan’s performance. But, what is the real problem? Is it caching? Is it inefficient code? Is it statistics? On the second day, Jonathan will focus on common but ineffective query patterns that lead to performance problems as well as better solutions to handling them. And finally, on the last day, Kimberly will show you how to tell if your query problems are because of caching problems or because of statistics.

With techniques to determine your query’s actual problem and the many possible solutions for solving them, if you work with SQL Server in almost any capacity but just don’t know how to dig into query performance – this class is for you! And, while there are still other potential problems that can occur, dedicating only 3 half-days of your time for 9 hours of lecture and up to 4.5 hours of open Q&A, this is an amazing ROI while you can still get work done during your day! Spend some time with us so that we can help you tackle many of the most common and problematic scenarios that often plague SQL Server systems.

This class is delivered live via online streaming.

  • “Great course. I could hear clearly, the content was relevant to current day problems, and provided clear instruction.”
  • “SLIGHTLY prefer the classroom option, but attendance to a location can be very hard to manage and therefore WebEx is a VERY, VERY good alternative. I didn’t think it would be, but I’m definitely sold.” – Kevin Urquhart, UK
  • “Loved the online aspect. It felt like I was there with the question ability and having the questions just answered right there. I felt I had a voice and could ask anything and the ability to watch it later made it totally worth the registration.”
  • “I really enjoyed the ability to ask questions as the course went along so that I didn’t forget what I wanted to ask while you were teaching. This allowed for questions to come through and class to continue until a good stopping point to answer the questions. Plus having the questions written from other attendees was nice for future reference instead of trying to remember from an in-person class discussion.”
  • “Kimberly, I have to tell you that you are hands down the finest educator I have ever met. Your dynamic personality, combined with your depth of knowledge, and passion to fully understand the subject matter are unmatched, in my experience. I feel truly privileged to have had the opportunity to learn from you again and again. You really DO make learning fun. Thank you!” – Mike Petri, USA
