Featured Presentation

Kicking and Screaming: Replacing Profiler with Extended Events

Speaker: Erin Stellato, Principal Consultant SQLskills

Summary: There have been FIVE new releases of SQL Server since the introduction of Extended Events in SQL Server 2008, and DBAs and developers alike *still* prefer Profiler. Friends, it's time to move on. If you've tried Extended Events and struggled, or if you've been thinking about it but just aren't sure where to begin, then come to this session. Using your existing knowledge and experience, we bridge the gap between Profiler and Extended Events through a series of demos, starting with the Profiler UI you know and love, and ending with an understanding of how to leverage functionality in the Extended Events UI for data analysis. By the end of this session, you’ll know how to use Extended Events in place of Profiler to continue the tasks you've been doing for years--and more. Whether you attend kicking and screaming, with resignation because you’ve finally given up, or with boundless enthusiasm for Extended Events, you'll learn practical techniques you can put to use immediately.
