Performance Tuning and Optimizing SQL Databases
This course is only delivered as costumer specific training with a group of persons from the same company!
This four-day instructor-led course provides students who manage and maintain SQL Server databases with the knowledge and skills to performance tune and optimize their databases.
The primary audience for this course is individuals who administer and maintain SQL Server databases and are responsible for optimal performance of SQL Server instances that they manage. These individuals also write queries against data and need to ensure optimal execution performance of the workloads.The secondary audiences for this course are individuals who develop applications that deliver content from SQL Server databases
In addition to their professional experience, students who attend this training should already have the following technical knowledge:
- Basic knowledge of the Microsoft Windows operating system and its core functionality.
- Working knowledge of database administration and maintenance.
- Working knowledge of Transact-SQL.
