Featured Presentation

Query Store – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Speaker: Amit Parikh, Senior Consultant Quest

Summary: With SQL Server 2016, Microsoft introduced the Query Store, which promised to track statement performance over time, pinpoint regressed queries and provide a more effective way to tune. In this session, we will look at the benefits and downsides of Query Store. How well does it actually work? What if your database is read only? What if you have lots of databases to monitor? How does it handle plan changes due to schema changes? Join Amit Parikh from Quest, to explore both the limitations and the sweet spot for using Query Store, and discover insightful tips on what to monitor, when to use it and how best to leverage the data it is collecting. Amit will then briefly discuss how Quest can help with managing SQL Server query performance.
