Harnessing SQL Sentry in a DevOps Pipeline

The webinar has passed, please fill the form to access the recording.


In our previous webinar, we showed how the use of SentryOne in conjunction with a DevOps process can help prevent shipping performance problems to production. In this webinar we will be showing how you can:

  • Use data captured from SentryOne to validate performance testing
  • Use SentryOne as an input to release gates, to only release when defined performance metrics have been met.
  • Use VSTS extensions to visualise performance test failures
This allows us to automatically fail releases based on poor performance as captured by a baseline in downstream environments, and surface that information in the release tool so that a release manager can understand why a release in the pipeline was marked as failed. This will typically be things like high CPU, logical IO, missing indexes, or deadlocks.
