Preventing SQL Server Performance Problems Before They Hit Production

Presented by Mark Allison,
Paul Anderton & Kevin Kline

Wouldn’t it be great if performance problems in your SQL estate could be detected BEFORE they reach your production databases? In this demo-centred webinar we will review:

  • How to detect and prevent releases of code that could reduce performance of your SQL Server database

  • Ways to prevent the most common performance problems before they reach production: missing indexes, deadlocks and excessive key lookups

  • How effective SentryOne can be in a DevOps pipeline both on-premise and in the cloud

  • How SentryOne can be used to highlight the usefulness of correlating data together to solve deployment problems quickly by creating Advisory Conditions that display data on the dashboards
