Nearly 80% of performance issues appear to be related to the performance of storage. In reality, only about half of those are actual bottlenecks - frequently things like missing indexes, bad database design or misuse of features can either negatively impact the performance of the storage, or make it look like the root cause of the issue.
Join Microsoft MVP, Joseph D’Antoni and Embarcadero Director of Software Consultants, Scott Walz as they shed light on diagnosing your IO subsystem.
In this session, you will learn:
+ Where to look in SQL Server to gather information
+ How to use Windows Performance Monitor to analyze storage performance
+ What a "false positive" storage problem might look like
There are only so many times you can yell at the SAN admin, before they get cranky and start giving you 1GB drives, so attend this session and learn when the time is right.
