After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the high level architectural overview of SQL Server and its various components.
  • Describe the SQL Server execution model, waits and queues.
  • Describe core I/O concepts, Storage Area Networks and performance testing.
  • Describe architectural concepts and best practices related to data files for user databases and TempDB.
  • Describe architectural concepts and best practices related to Concurrency, Transactions, Isolation Levels and Locking.
  • Describe architectural concepts of the Optimizer and how to identify and fix query plan issues.
  • Describe architectural concepts, troubleshooting scenarios and best practices related to Plan Cache.
  • Describe architectural concepts, troubleshooting strategy and usage scenarios for Extended Events.
  • Explain data collection strategy and techniques to analyze collected data.
  • Understand techniques to identify and diagnose bottlenecks to improve overall performance.
