Performance Parasites: What You Need to Know About TempDB


Date: Wednesday, January 20
Time: 11am ET
Length: 35 minutes

Do you suspect SQL Server tempdb is dragging down your database performance? You're probably right. Tempdb, a system database in Microsoft SQL Server that stores data used in various active processing routines, can be a notorious performance killer if not monitored and managed properly. For one thing, tempdb is a single point of contention for an instance. Worse, there are a lot of activities going on in tempdb you might not be aware of.

In this webinar, we'll help you determine whether tempdb is affecting SQL Server performance, so you can fix the problem. We'll look at operations that happen in tempdb, examples of performance-hampering implicit activities in tempdb, and little-known performance optimization techniques.

We'll also discuss common tempdb performance problems and how to address them, including:

  • Misconfiguration of tempdb
  • Lack of storage for disk, file, or data logs
  • PFS page contention
  • Availability Groups and version store bloat

We'll also show you some ways you can use SQL Sentry to monitor tempdb to prevent future performance problems.
