How to Get the Most Out of the SQL Server Profiler
Author: Grant Paisley Date Posted: 6/16/2009 6:27:24 AM
Brad M McGehee, SQL MVP and author is visiting our shores from the US.

While many DBAs may understand SQL Server 2005/2008 Profiler basics, not too many know how to tap the full potential of this important tool. In this session, you will learn many advanced techniques you can use to troubleshoot both SQL Server problems and performance issues, including:
* How to Identify and Analyze Slowly Performing Queries;
* How to Identify Deadlocking Issues;
* How to Identify Blocked Processes;
* How to Identify Memory Warnings,
* How to Identify Excessive SP Compilations;
* How to Identify Issues with SP Cache Activity;
* How to Correlate Profiler and System Monitor Data.

Given the limited time available, not every possible use of Profiler can be discussed. But by learning these specific examples, the DBA will begin to have a fuller appreciation of what Profiler can do for them.
