The Orlando SQL user group (OPASS) meets the third or fourth Thursday of every month at Logan's Roadhouse in Sanford, FL. We feature a different speaker every month covering a variety of topics. This is a free event centered around Microsoft SQL server, where everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Come join us for free learning, networking, food, and fun.

Featured Presentation:

Unleashing SQL Server Performance Monitoring

David Pless, Technical Solution Professional Microsoft

In this session we will cover tips and tricks on using performance monitor and the best methods of capturing performance monitoring data. This is not your typical performance monitoring discussion. We will cover how to leverage the custom performance monitor counters so you can roll your own custom performance monitoring solution. We will cover the different ways of capturing performance monitor data through DMVs, Extended Events, PowerShell, and the efficient tools to obtain this data and automate captures. We will also cover tricks on creating efficient perfmon templates for system diagnostics.

As a TSP I conduct full training workshops, conduct demo sessions, and perform architectural reviews on all supported builds of SQL Server. I mainly support the Southeast focusing on Florida, but I can be anywhere in the world. My core areas are Performance Tuning and Optimization, Azure, AlwaysOn, Reporting Services (SSRS), custom monitoring, building custom dashboards, and more.
