Featured Presentation

Using PSSDiag to Troubleshoot Performance Issues

Speaker: Stacy Gray Microsoft

Summary: We’ve all experienced working on a slow computer. It is frustrating trying to figure out what is wrong with it. It is even more frustrating when that slow computer is your SQL Server. How is one to know what data to collect, what are the acceptable thresholds, and what to do when those thresholds are exceeded? Searching for answers on the internet is sometimes scary. PSSDIAG is a utility used by Microsoft SQL Support Engineers to diagnose performance problems with SQL Server. This presentation details what the tool is, why you’d want to use it and how to interpret the output.

About Stacy: Stacy has worked with SQL Server since 6.5 working for and supporting enterprise-level corporations before landing a contract position at Microsoft in 2011. Hired as a PFE for Microsoft Mediaroom in 2012, I moved back to SQL Support when Mediaroom was sold to Ericsson in 2013. I’m a MCSE, Be The Next Microsoft Employee contestant, poker player, wife, mother & Gone With the Wind fanatic.
