SOUTH <br /> Parameter Sniffing the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly <br /> by Lance Tidwell

211 E. William Cannon Drive
Austin, Texas 78745
Time: 18:00 - 19:30

Title: Parameter Sniffing the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
by: Lance Tidwell

Summary: Parameter sniffing is something that more than often helps performance on your servers; however, there are times when it can hinder performance as well. In this session we will define exactly what parameter sniffing is, and examine when it is good and when it is bad. Lastly, we will explore the different options available to fix bad parameter sniffing. After this session, you will be able to locate and fix bad parameter sniffing when it occurs on your servers.

Speaker: Lance Tidwell, Database Administrator TicketCity:
Bio: Lance Tidwell, from the Austin, TX, area, has worked as a SQL Server DBA for the last 11 years. During his time as a DBA he has found his passion for all things SQL, but specifically for performance tuning. He has a life-long quest to always be learning new things; currently this quest has lead him to explore more about the Data Analytics/ Data Science areas.
