Speaking at PASS Summit 2017

I’m very pleased to announce that I will be speaking at PASS Summit 2017!  This is my first time speaking at PASS Summit and I’m very excited to be doing so! What’s more, is I get to help blaze new ground on a emerging technology SQL Server on Linux! My session is Monitoring Linux Performance for the SQL Server Admin so if you’re a Windows or SQL Server administrator, this session is for you. We’ll look at some of the internals of SQL Server on Linux and dive into Linux OS internals and show you where to look inside Linux for most important performance data for your SQL Server. I hope to see you there!

 

Monitoring Linux Performance for the SQL Server Admin

Abstract

So you’re a SQL Server administrator and you just installed SQL Server on Linux. It’s a whole new world. Don’t fear, it’s just an operating system. It has all the same components Windows has and in this session we’ll show you that. We will look at the Linux operating system architecture and show you where to look for the performance data you’re used to! Further we’ll dive into SQLPAL and how it architecture and internals enables high performance for your SQL Server. By the end of this session you’ll be ready to go back to the office and have a solid understanding of performance monitoring Linux systems and SQL on Linux. We’ll look at the core system components of CPU, Disk, Memory and Networking monitoring techniques for each and look some of the new tools available including new DMVs and DBFS.
