Confio® Software to Hold Webinar on Deconstructing System_Health Events for Improved SQL Server Performance


Boulder, Colo., Oct. 21, 2013 – Confio Software, the makers of the award-winning ConfioŇ IgniteÔ database performance monitoring solution and a part of the SolarWindsŇ family, will hold a free, live webinar designed to give SQL Server database administrators (DBAs) more tools, tips and techniques to use when trying to troubleshoot performance issues.
Taking place on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern, Geekin’ out on Extended Events: Deconstructing the system_health event to solve SQL Server performance, will demonstrate how this default extended event session can be exploited to, not only show performance issues, but can assist in giving historical trends over time in order to find what’s normal versus non-normal. Confio’s Senior DBA and performance expert, Janis Griffin, will take webinar attendees on an in-depth tour of the data provided in the system_health event session and how to use it to troubleshoot performance issues.
“There is a wealth of information in the system_health event session included by default with SQL Server,” said Griffin. “In this webinar, we will show DBAs how to leverage the data in the event session and offer some meaningful case studies where companies have improved their database performance using this system health data.”
