Simplify SQL Server Management with DMVs – the Experts’ Perspective
With the release of SQL Server 2005, an easier method for monitoring what SQL Server is doing and how it is performing was born with the introduction of Dynamic Management Views (DMVs). They replace the need to query the system tables or using other awkward methods of retrieving system information that you had to use with SQL Server 2000.
Now’s your chance to explore one of the most popular SQL Server topics of the year with a panel of prominent experts from the world’s leading companies. Join us for this free breakfast event at PASS Summit as we discuss “Making the Most of SQL Server DMVs – the Experts’ Perspective”.
This panel of experts from Quest Software, Microsoft, Compass Technology and Spectrum Health Hospital System, will explore some of the most popular DMVs and show you some of their favorites. You will leave with a full stomach – and the knowledge you need to make the most of DMVs to simplify your ability to retrieve system information!
