SQL Server Query Tuning Fundamentals

Key Concepts Covered in this Course

Klaus Aschenbrenner

Microsoft Certified Master for SQL Server

I work with Microsoft SQL Server for more than 20 years, and I provide with my company SQLpassion consulting and training services around the whole world.

Since 2012 I’m also a Microsoft Certified Master for SQL Server.

Course Description

If you have a database driven application which reacts very slowly when the data increases, then you are right in this webinar! In this live training you will learn how you can tune SQL Server Queries with the information available inside an execution plan. You will see how SQL Server retrieves data from the database files, how SQL Server can join resultsets, and how you can react with indexes if you are in performance troubles.


Amazing Course

“My day-to-day writing of SQL has gone up a level – I am able to finely tune individual statements or underlying database objects to get the kind of query plan I want. Moreover I know now what sort of plan I am looking for. I have been already able to use this knowledge to address performance issues that came up this week in capacity testing.”
