Featured Presentation

Query Store (Level 200)

Speaker: Torsten Strauss, Database Engineer & SQL Server Evangelist BP Europe SE

Summary: Microsoft introduced Query Store in SQL Server 2016 as a new feature which makes certain database management views (sys.dm_exec_query_stats and sys.dm_exec_cached_plans) obsolete. In this session you will learn how Query Store works comparing to the “old” way to detect long running queries and even plan regression. Furthermore you will understand how to configure Query Store for your needs, avoid common pitfalls, interpret the available reports, new database management views and stored procedures to get the best out of the new feature.

About Torsten: I have been working with the Microsoft SQL Server stack since 16 years and achieved the MCSE Data Management and Analytics, MCSE Data Platform , MCSA SQL Server 2012, MCTS SQL Server 2008 BI, DEV, Admin and MCT certification. Over the last years I have been given presentations within the PASS community about the SQL Server database engine on a regular basis. Additionally I have spoken at several international SQL Saturdays and SQL Server conferences. I am the co-founder of the PASS Special Interest Group SQL Server internals and a friend of redgate.
