Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.
Tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. EDT (4:00 p.m. GMT) I'll be doing a webcast for the PASS Application Development Virtual Chapter.
Next-Level SQLCLR: Parallel Processing and Bulk Load
The power of SQLCLR as a performance tool has been well-documented at
this point; certain queries, when re-written the right way using SQLCLR
components, can run an order of magnitude more quickly. If you're
already using SQLCLR, or need that extra push, attend this session to
discover how to take things one step further using advanced techniques
and a custom SQLCLR component that will help you leverage the power of
parallelism to burn through your rows more quickly than you ever thought
possible. This session includes some of the material that will be
covered in Adam Machanic's full-day PASS Summit post-conference seminar,
"A Day of Doing Many Things at Once: Multitasking, Parallelism, and
Process Distribution." More information on the seminar is available
In the coming days I'll be doing a series of blog posts on this same topic, but this webcast will be my first public unveiling of some of this material. Looking forward to it, and I hope to see you in the Live Meeting session.
