Topic:  Introduction to SQL Profiler

Description: The SQL Server Profiler is a powerful, but underused tool. Often developers and some DBAs don’t realize the potential the tool has to offer.

Finally, I will provide sample scripts and methods that can be used to proactively monitor your SQL Server for inefficient queries and stored procedures.
