Laying Down the Law with Resource Governor

Lonny Niederstadt, Systems Engineer Epic

Even on an adequately-sized database server, mixed workload patterns can present resource utilization and performance challenges. Even with prior testing and careful code promotion, runaway queries can disrupt normal business activities. SQL Server gives a number of tools to control both resource access and pace of work. In this session we'll stress SQL Server with a set of workloads to illustrate several Resource Governor strategies in SQL Server 2016. We'll also look at some SQL Server resource controls and throttles outside of Resource Governor.

His current work includes SQL Server performance & scalability investigations, and developing best practices from research results.
