Featured Presentation:

XEvents

Jack Corbett, Data Software Development Lead RiverStone Resources, LLC

XEvents were introduced with SQL Server 2008 and enhanced in SQL Server 2012 and with the announcement that SQL Trace/Profiler is being deprecated now is the time to begin learning XEvents. We will look at why you should start working with Extended Events, when you should start, and how to start. What you will learn: 1. How to investigate XEvents objects using the DMV's 2. How to create an XEvents Session 3. How to transition an existing Trace to an XEvents Session. This session assumes that you have a basic level of experience with SSMS and some familiarity with Trace/Profiler.
