Gems to help you troubleshoot query performance

Description Query Store in SQL Server 2016 is one of the most relevant improvements for production DBAs. It introduces the concept of click-once mitigation approach to query performance regression. But that's not the sum of all enhancements in the query performance analysis and troubleshooting space introduced in SQL Server. In this session we will learn about other enhancements that can help you troubleshoot query performance.

Ranging from xEvents to Showplan improvements, from LQS to the revised Plan More...Comparison tool, learn how these can help you streamline the process of troubleshooting query performance.
