Adelaide SQL Server User Group

Welcome

Welcome to the Adelaide PASS group - covering SQL Server and every aspect of the Microsoft Data Platform and Data Analytics space. You can find us on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Microsoft offices, Level 12, 147 Pirie St.

There's a link below to get on the mailing list. This is a mailchimp list, rather than the one that PASS handles.

We use EventBrite for meeting registrations - please look at adaug.eventbrite.com for a list of our meetings.

Many years ago, we used sqlserver.org.au, and you can see an archive of events on that site - but the Adelaide mailing list from there hasn't been used for some time.

Now, a quick word about privacy...

The details of event registrations are held with EventBrite, and I use that to update my EventBrite contacts, which is then used to update a mailchimp list for sending emails about the group. If you ever want to be removed from either my EventBrite contact list or the mailchimp list, please just let me know (rob at lobsterpot.com.au). I do this for you and will do my best to keep your privacy private.

The importance of baselines
When you experience a performance problem, how can you easily tell where the problem is without being able to compare against a known-good set of measurements? In this session, Erin Stellato will demonstrate the need for baselines, and show how to create a performance baseline for a SQL Server instance, using tools such as Performance Monitor, DMVs, SQL Trace and Extended Events. Using benchmarking techniques she will explain and demonstrate how to solve a problem based on comparisons to baselines.

Speaker: Erin Stellato
Erin Stellato is a Data Platform MVP and lives outside Cleveland, OH. She has almost 20 years of technology experience and has worked with SQL Server since 2003. Her areas of interest include performance tuning, Query Store, Extended Events, and helping accidental/involuntary DBAs understand how SQL Server works. Erin is an active member of the SQL Server community, has volunteered for PASS at the local and national level, and is a regular speaker at conferences including the PASS Summit, SQLIntersection, and SQLBits. Outside of time with family and friends, she enjoys running, spinning, movies, and all things chocolate.
