Austin, Texas 78759
Time: 18:00 - 19:30

Title: How To Transition From Profiler To Extended Events And Why You Should Consider It
by: Dainius Sutkevicius

Summary: Let me ask you, what comes to your mind when you hear / read phrase SQL Server Extended Events? You may be thinking: "What is it, what does it do?", "I don’t have time to learn this", "I already have the tool that does all I need", "It’ll require too much coding", "There is no way Extended Events can do what SQL Profiler does." <br /> Why don’t we take a closer look using straightforward examples in order to figure out what it’s all about, because learning Extended Events is fun and easy. <br /> <br /> In this session we will cover the following: <br /> -- How to create an extended event session using an existing trace. <br /> -- How to create XE (Extended Events) in UI (User interface) from the ground up. <br /> -- How to analyze the data. <br /> -- What to watch out for in terms of performance.
