Learn how to easily query Azure SQL Database for performance and configuration information to help identify and fix issues that can affect performance and stability. This course is applicable to anyone responsible for Azure SQL Database.
It is very common for Azure SQL Databases to have workload performance problems. In this course, Azure SQL Database: Diagnosing Performance Issues with DMVs, you will learn how to use a variety of DMV queries to find performance and configuration information in Azure SQL Database. First, you will see how to diagnose and fix configuration issues at the database level. Next, you will discover how to diagnose and fix performance issues related to CPU and workload activity. Finally, you will explore how to find and fix issues related to storage and memory. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to use these DMV queries to increase the performance and stability of your workload on Azure SQL Database.

Course Overview My name is Glenn Berry, and welcome to my course, Azure SQL Database: Diagnosing Configuration and Performance Issues with DMVs. I'm a principal consultant with SQLskills, and this topic is one that I feel very excited about. In the course of my career as a database administrator and consultant, I've used my DMV diagnostic queries on a nearly daily basis to find and correct many common Azure SQL Database configuration and performance issues. The queries that are detailed and demonstrated in this course will help you detect and correct many common issues with both your Azure SQL Database server and your databases. I want to show you how to properly understand how to interpret these queries, and then how to use those results to help get a better-performing Azure SQL Database environment. If you work with Azure SQL Database or SQL Server in any capacity, whatever your level, this course is relevant to you. Experience using SQL Server 2005 or newer is helpful, along with a basic understanding of how Azure SQL Database works. I hope you'll join me as we explore proper configuration and performance with Azure SQL Database: Diagnosing Configuration and Performance Issues with DMVs, here on Pluralsight.
