This month, the team here at Straight Path Solutions will be kicking off our monthly webinar series with “The Worst Repeat Offenders on SQL Server Health Checks”. We hope you’ll join us for the 30-ish minute presentation and the panel discussion/Q&A after.
The Worst Repeat Offenders on SQL Server Health Checks
Every time we onboard a new Remote DBA Services client at Straight Path, we provide them our SQL Server Health Check for 3 of their SQL Servers included in the relationship. We also do a lot of SQL Server health checks in general – as a standalone service or as the first hours in most projects. So… I guess I’m saying we check the health of a LOT of SQL Servers each year.
When we do these health checks, we’ve learned to stop being surprised by the things we find. These are things we and other great SQL Server bloggers have been blogging and presenting about for most of the 25 years I’ve been working with SQL Server, and yet we still see them.
So let’s talk about it. Let’s share why these things show up, how to avoid them, and show you how to fix them yourselves before calling us. It’s not that we don’t want to find them on the health check, we’re fine finding them – they usually have easier solutions and quick gains. But we’d rather work with you on the next-level items and dig deeper, and these are just good skills for DBAs to have. We’re happy to share them and discuss them.
The Webinar and Discussion
So – feel free to join us on Thursday 6/23/2022 at Noon US EDT and check out the quick presentation. After that we’ll have a panel discussion/Q&A. I’ll share the presentation, and then we’ll have a couple of our consultants from our Senior team and our Junior DBA team join us to talk about the items discussed on the presentation, answer questions about SQL Server health checks or any of the questions you have.
This is the link on Zoom to register for the webinar and discussion. We hope to see you there! And check back here for content relating to SQL Server health, SQL Server health checks, and keeping up with the basics this month.
In July we’ll focus on Security and ransomware protection/prevention/recovery from the lens of the DBA. In August we’ll talk about upgrades and migrations.
