Troubleshooting AlwaysOn Availability Groups in SQL 2014

10900 Stonelake Blvd. Suite 225 - Microsoft Office
Austin, Texas 78759
Time: 18:00 - 20:30

Title: Troubleshooting AlwaysOn Availability Groups in SQL 2014
by: Trayce Jordan

Summary: In this session we will cover what to monitor to have confidence that AlwaysOn AGs are working properly. We will also cover where to look for problems - DMVs, extended event logs, SQL error logs, cluster logs, etc. We'll go through the most common scenarios we see in the MS SQL Support queues for AlwaysOn AGs. How to recognize them and how to troubleshoot and fix them. Most of the presentation will be through case studies and actual demonstrations. We may even have time to take your real-world headaches too, so bring your questions.
