Things You Can Find in the Plan Cache

The Plan Cache is one of SQL Server's fundamental components, and getting to know it will take your troubleshooting and performance tuning skills to the next level. In this session we will demonstrate a few basic and advanced ways we can use the Plan Cache in order to identify and solve query performance problems. Among other topics, we will talk about: * How an Execution Plan is generated * The right ways to use parameters * How to overcome Parameter Sniffing problems * Common performance problems and solutions * What insanely valuable data we can pull out of the Plan Cache And much more..
