SQL Server 2000 Query Analysis and Optimization
Author: Victor Isakov Date Posted: 17/03/2005 12:08:56 PM
In April Victor Isakov (MCT, MCSE, MCDBA) will focus on analysing and optimizing query performance on SQL Server 2000.

Session 1:
This session will look at the optimizer in more detail and the various components of the query plan. The various tools available. The different join types will be discussed. It will conclude with when you should consider over-riding the Optimiser and the various hints available.

Session 2:
Indexing is just as important, as the optimizer ultimately looks at available indexes to generate it's QPs. This session will focus more on index design and trade-offs for optimal T-SQL execution. When should you use composite indexes? What are the implications of columns ordering and data types? What are best practises for covering indexes?
