SQL Server Performance Tuning

Often, database performance issues result from poorly written queries, bad design, or index strategies. Unlike hardware upgrades, SQL query tuning can offer immediate and powerful results. However, effective SQL tuning requires not only knowing the top SQL statements, but also the top wait types, SQL plans, the effect of missing indexes, blocked queries, and resource contention. DPA isolates the root cause, provides the much needed SQL tuning advice and is a must for performance tuning in SQL.
