The Power Of Composite Indexes | Rob Farley | Thursday (NOT Tuesday)
Author: Grant Paisley Date Posted: 10/13/2015 9:53:18 AM
This month we MOVED THE MEETING TO THURSDAY (AND EARLIER) so we can get a sneak preview of Rob Farley's USA PASS SUMMIT SESSION

A composite index is when an index key uses multiple columns. Yet we see countless third-party applications recommending single-column index keys. In this session, we will explore the benefits of both scenarios, and also look at the impact on query plans, performance, blocking operators, and coverage. We will take a deep dive into concepts such as sargability, index intersection, inequality operations, and methods for writing queries that can help you get the most out of your indexing strategies, whether using composite or non-composite indexes.
