Extended Events to the Rescue


Extended Events is a highly scalable and highly configurable monitoring platform, which every DBA must be familiar with. It has many advantages over alternative tools, such as SQL Trace or Dynamic Management Views. In some cases, it is the only tool that can provide the desired monitoring solution. In this session we will demonstrate several common use cases, such as monitoring query waits, troubleshooting deadlocks and monitoring page splits. We will demonstrate how to setup an event session for each use case, and how to analyze the collected data in a meaningful way. By the end of this session, you'll have several practical monitoring and troubleshooting solutions to apply on your environment.
