Featured Presentation:

Making the Leap from Profiler to Extended Events

Erin Stellato, Principal Consultant SQLskills

If you’re like me, you’ve been using SQL Trace and Profiler since you started using SQL Server. They’re like old friends, tried and true. You know how they work, you know what you can capture, and you know how to find the data you need. But now you’ve been told that your good friends have been deprecated in SQL Server 2012, and you need to become best friends with Extended Events. What is THAT all about? It’s OK. Really. In this session, we’ll look at Profiler and Extended Events side by side to see how easy it is to transition to Extended Events. We’ll step through real-world examples using Extended Events to do what you’re used to doing with Trace, and more. This session is applicable whether you're running SQL Server 2008 or 2012, and you'll walk out with a set of scripts to get you started. If you’ve been putting off learning Extended Events because you just don’t think you have the time (even if you’ve never used Profiler), this is the session for you. You CAN find the time…today.
