  1. Troubleshooting Shared Storage for DBAs (Brent Ozar) - 17:30-18:30

Your SQL Server's data lives on the SAN, and you're not happy about that. All the Perfmon metrics you gather seem to point to a storage problem, but the SAN admin says the storage is sitting around bored, so it must be a SQL Server problem. Brent Ozar feels your pain - years ago, he was a DBA in the same position, so when his SAN admin quit, Brent took the job. In just 90 minutes, he'll teach you what's inside the SAN, why multipathing is so important, how to test storage throughput, and why TempDB should be on local SSDs.

This session is going to be presented on screen through the Global Hebrew virtual chapter. People in the audience will be able to ask Brent questions throughout the session.

Brent Ozar (Blog|Twitter)is aMicrosoft Certified Master of SQL Server, MVP, published author and consultant.
