Most valuable course

This course is the most valuable performance-related course I’ve ever had. The wealth of data in the trace files is hugely valuable and daunting at the same time. With the Method R set of tools, the trace files make sense now. They make it possible, sometimes just within minutes, to get to the very root cause of a performance problem, pretty much eliminating all the trial-error-guess work.

From 6½ hours to less than 11 minutes

The first time I used it, the Profiler helped me reduce the run time of one query from 6½ hours to less than 11 minutes. With our trace data and your tools, I can do stuff that no one here has even imagined possible.
