The importance of baselines
When you experience a performance problem, how can you easily tell where the problem is without being able to compare against a known-good set of measurements? In this session, Erin Stellato will demonstrate the need for baselines, and show how to create a performance baseline for a SQL Server instance, using tools such as Performance Monitor, DMVs, SQL Trace and Extended Events. Using benchmarking techniques she will explain and demonstrate how to solve a problem based on comparisons to baselines.
