Extended Events in SQL Server

Dave Bland

Extended Events are an essential part of proper monitoring and every DBA should know what they are and how to use them. This session will cover the basics of Extended events as well as an introduction to the system_health session. This session will give someone who has never used Extended events before the skills to start using them! We will also cover some of the common events to monitor and what kind of issues can be found.
