DBD: Query Hints - The Good, the bad and the ugly! (Victor Isakov)
Author: Victor Isakov Date Posted: 5/25/2011 6:16:05 AM
Does SQL Server's Query Optimizer seem inconsistent at times? Executing complex queries very quickly at times, yet sometimes executing simple queries frustratingly very s-l-o-w-l-y? What are your options when the Query Optimizer isn't "doing it's job"? One potential solution is the use of query hints.

In this session Victor Isakov (MCA, MCM, MCT, MVP) will examine the most-commonly used queries hints. More importantly he will discuss the use cases where you should use query hints, as opposed to trying alternative solutions first.

Along the way we will discuss the importance of statistics, plan guides and other various aspects of query tuning.
