    When managing a single server it is easy to keep track of the configuration of that server, but what about when you have more than ten servers to manage or a hundred? How do you know they are setup correctly?  How do you maintain the databases on each server? How do you take care of patching? How do you know when your server is on fire?

    In this talk we will answer these questions and more as we discuss technologies and approaches you can use to make sure your environment is configured and performing at its best.

    Target Audience:

    DBAs that have implemented AGs and need to know different ways to monitor them or what to monitor.

    Abstract:

    Once you have successfully configured Availability Groups, what comes next? In this session, we will go beyond setup and look at how to monitor your Availability Groups.  We will define and cover important metrics and alerts you need to manage a database in an Availability Group.

    You will walk away from this session with tools you need to monitor your environment and know how to respond to alerts.

    Why I Want to Present This Session:

    I really like HA/DR technologies.

    Database administration is a fundamental responsibility but we are often reactive to a ticket, an email or conversation about something that happened after the fact. But without a set known-good measurements to compare against how do you know what to look at? This session will show you how to capture a performance baseline for a SQL Server instance. The session will help you decide what and when to capture data and where to store it. Then we will walk through different tools and scripts to use.

    What I will leave with: Understanding of methods and tools to capture performance and identify issues.  You will be able to start collecting performance information and be more knowledgeable about your environment.

    The conference is a one track conference where the speakers will attend the sessions with the attendees to provide interaction with the attendees.  This is going to a fun event where you will make lots of friends and have access to the speakers so come out and join us on the SQL Trail. If you have any questions please go to the website to get more information.
