It's Your Data! Querying the SentryOne Database 

SentryOne collects a plethora of data from your monitored environment and stores it all in the SentryOne database. Hardware specs, OS and SQL Server instance information, SQL Agent jobs, task scheduler tasks, database files, tables, indexes, top sql, blocking sql, deadlocks, performance metrics, and more! It's a gold mine of data that you need to analyze, report on, and integrate with other sources in ways the SentryOne client and reports don't provide.

In this session, you will learn SentryOne database design basics, methods for finding the data you need, and walk away with a foundational script library to get you started.

Designing Databases for Change

If you've been working with databases for any length of time, you know that at the beginning, there can be a lot of churn on the various table schema and stored procedures used to work with the data. However, making those changes aren't always so easy due to the number of applications that interact with your data that will break once the changes have been made. To help solve this problem, I'm going to introduce the idea of semantic versioning to your database, this idea of knowing what types of changes are more destructive than others. From there, I'm going to show you a couple of tips and tricks on how to make common breaking changes without disturbing applications.
