Improving Query Performance


Featured Presentation

Improving Query Performance

Speaker: Brian Kelley, Consultant Truth Solutions, LLC

Summary: We want queries to run fast. The faster queries run, the less likely they are to get in the way of other queries (blocking). The faster queries run, the less likely they are to collide where one will have to be rolled back (deadlocking). And the faster queries run, the more queries we can pump through the system, thereby improving performance. In this presentation we'll look at how the SQL Server query engine works: how it breaks down a query, how it uses indexes, and how it puts all this together to produce an execution plan. By understanding how the engine works, we'll understand how to improve our queries.
