Description

SharePoint as a server product is like many other applications, in that it often errors, slows down, or just does not perform as expected. Designing the architecture correctly is only part one of looking after the overall solution. In this course, Monitoring, Troubleshooting and Optimizing SharePoint 2016, you'll gain the ability to successfully look after a SharePoint Farm. First, you'll learn how to monitor SharePoint, and what tools to use. Next, you'll explore how to troubleshoot basic issues, as well as the process to resolve more complicated issues. Finally, you'll dive into how to optimize SQL for SharePoint, along with SharePoint itself. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a solid foundation in troubleshooting common SharePoint issues and optimizing SharePoint for better performance. Software required: Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, SQL Server 2014 SP2, SQL Server 2016, and SharePoint Server 2016.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Liam Cleary and welcome to my course, Monitoring, Troubleshooting, and Optimizing SharePoint 2016. I am currently a Microsoft MVP within SharePoint. In this course, we are going to monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize a SharePoint 2016 file. Some of the major topics that we will cover include enabling SharePoint logging and monitoring, configuring performance counters for both SharePoint and SQL Server, optimizing SQL Server specifically for SharePoint 2016, and increasing overall performance of a SharePoint file. By the end of this course, you will have a solid foundation in troubleshooting common SharePoint issues and optimizing SharePoint for better performance. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with SharePoint and SQL Server. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to monitor and troubleshoot your SharePoint environment with the Monitoring, Troubleshooting, and Optimizing SharePoint 2016 course at Pluralsight.

Optimizing SharePoint Database Servers
Hello and welcome to this module, module seven, Optimizing SharePoint Database Servers. I will be your presenter today, and my name's Liam Cleary. One of the first things that we can look at in order to give better performance, and also to limit any of the issues that we may have in a SharePoint environment is to use a dedicated SQL server for SharePoint. That's one of the most important things. I've seen too many SharePoint environments where it's sharing other systems, whether it's another SharePoint environment, for example you may have a SQL server infrastructure that's been built, and then you may share that database for other servers and services. That is not the best way, and actually not a supported way of doing it. So let's look at what we're going to cover in this module. We'll look at SQL optimization techniques, SQL database optimization techniques, and I want to clarify the difference between the two, so SQL optimization is really around the server infrastructure and the application, and then things you can do at the database level to increase optimization. Obviously we'll talk about profiling SQL in order for us to troubleshoot an issue, then obviously we need to understand how that profiling process works.

Troubleshoot and Monitor SharePoint Hybrid
Hello, and welcome to this module, Module Nine: Troubleshoot and Monitor SharePoint Hybrid. My name's Liam Cleary, and I'll be your presenter today. In this module, we're going to understand Office 365 monitoring and logging. We'll then look up on-premises monitoring and logging. And we'll then look at troubleshooting hybrid issues. This will give us a deeper understanding of how the hybrid space between SharePoint on-premises and Office 365 kind of merges together to allow us to identify issues.
