Ingesting Extended Events

Speaker: Diane Sithoo

Summary: Extended Events has been available in SQL Server since 2008, and was heralded as a replacement for SQL Profiler. In this session, learn the basics of how to use Extended Events, and how as a SQL DBA or Developer you can utilize various methods of pulling in historical events in order to build statistics and insights. We will also cover the new XEvent Profiler in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio v17.3 or later.

PlentyOfFish Media ULC has generously sponsored both the location and pizza for this event, so please RSVP to let us know you are coming, so we can make sure we have enough food and drinks on hand.
