The UpSearch team supported SQLSaturday #473 – Cleveland 2016 by making two presentations:

Colleen Morrow presented Inside the Black Box – Making Sense of Service Broker.

David Maxwell presented Turbo-Charged Transaction Logs.

Honorable Mention

Sometimes, moments unexpectedly transcend all expectations. Evelyn Maxwell’s presentation was one of those moments for many of us.

If you don’t know about Evelyn Maxwell, you ought to. In her SQLSaturday speaking debut, Evelyn presented Improving Your PowerPoint Skills. Everyone learned something new about PowerPoint. She made us laugh, kept the audience engaged, under control and navigated technical difficulties like a seasoned professional.

Keep your eye on Evelyn Maxwell. It won’t be long before she challenges for PASS Summit Speaker Idol.

About the Presentation

SQL Transaction Logs | UpSearchThe transaction log is one of the most critical, yet often misunderstood components of SQL Server. From out of control log growth to very long start-up times, problems with the transaction log can cause a lot of pain. In Turbo-Charged SQL Transaction Logs, we look at how the transaction log works and how to optimize its performance. You will learn how to determine the right settings for maximum throughput, and what to do when things get out of control.

Session Level: Beginner
