Topic: Introduction to Graphical Execution Plans

Topic: #11-Introduction to Graphical Execution Plans
One of the black arts of being a DBA is learning how to read and interpret graphical execution plans. This is an important skill, as knowing how to read and interpret graphical execution plans can help the DBA tune queries for optimal performance. Without this crucial knowledge, the DBA won’t be able identify potential query problems, nor understand how to fix them. In this short, introductory level session, which is designed for DBAs with little or no knowledge of query execution plans, you will learn why execution plans are important, how they are created, learn about the different execution plan formats, discover different ways to produce them, find out about the difference between estimated and actual execution plans, and learn the basics of how to read them. Because this is an introductory session, after attending, I highly recommend you download this free eBook to learn more about execution plans: “SQL Server Execution Plans” by Grant Fritchey. This session assumes attendees have a basic foundation of DBA knowledge. After attending the session, attendees will be able to immediately put what they have learned into practice.
