On Thursday, April 21, 2022, I will be presenting How to Survive a SQL Server Health Check for the Edmonton Microsoft Data Professionals. This will be an online presentation that starts at 4:30PM MDT. The link for the event is here, and you can attend online.
I have presented for the Edmonton Microsoft Data Professionals in the past, and it has always been a good experience. This session will be a lot of fun!
What Will We Cover?
Here is a little more information about this session. Here is the abstract:
How to Survive a SQL Server Health Check
You have just found out that an outside consultant is going to be conducting a comprehensive SQL Server Health Check on one of your database servers. What do you do now? Is it time to panic? No, that is not the answer! This session will cover the most common and important things that consultants look for in a health check. Knowing this in advance will help you prepare for and do better in the health check. More importantly, this session will help you understand best practice configuration settings and practices for your database servers and databases.
I have done hundreds of SQL Server Health Checks over the course of my career, and I would like to pass along some of that experience to make the process more valuable if I end up looking at your server!
If you are interested in this topic, I would love to see you at this event! I recently presented this session live for SQL Saturday Colorado Springs 2022, and I think it went pretty well.
