Using Extended Events to Expose Application Performance Issues 

Posted by altadmin Thursday, September 14, 2017 8:54:00 AM

Meet & Greet at 6:30PM Presentation at 7PM
Please join and RSVP at our FWSSUG MEETUP page!

When an application is performing poorly, the database is almost always suspected to be the source of the problem. Not so fast! In this session, learn how to use Extended Events to analyze the space BETWEEN calls to the SQL Server. This non-traditional technique can help you to identify where an application is actually the source of a performance issue and not the SQL Server.

Mindy Curnutt is a 3X Microsoft Data Platform MVP. She is also a Trimble Distinguished Engineer, the VP of Information Management at TMW Systems and an Idera Ace. She helps support almost 1,500 companies in the logistics and trucking industry using SQL Server as their database platform. Within the transportation industry, Mindy is well known as THE “Go-To” person when it comes to SQL Server questions or issues. Her specialties are hardware, configuration, scalability and performance tuning.

Mindy has been actively involved in the SQL Server Community for over a decade and has become a well known speaker within the SQL and Transportation Management communities. She presented at the SQLPASS Summits in 2005, 2006, 2012, 2013, 2015 and was honored as the September, 2016 SQLPass Outstanding Volunteer. Mindy spoke at her local North Texas SQL Server User Group in 2002, 2003 & 2015, and numerous SQLSaturday chapters throughout North America.

Mindy was a SME for both the SQL 2012 and 2014 Microsoft Certification Exams. In 2016 she delivered a speech during the Keynote about the Future of Big Data in Transportation at TMW Systems & PeopleNet’s In.Sight event – “Data Quality and Reference Data“.
