OKCSQL | Oklahoma City SQL Server Users Group

February 2014 Meeting

We are excited to invite you to the next meeting of the Oklahoma City SQL Server Developers Group!

February Topic: Fill Factor: Performance or Nuisance?

by Bill Barnes, in person speaker.

Bill teaches how to expand a little known but widely modified feature of SQL Server. Fill Factor is something to address in performance tuning after all the low hanging fruit has been addressed. This is not a deep dive into the underlying mechanics of how SQL Server works, but a softer more useful approach to this subject. We will be looking into why changing this could be either good or bad for your environments. This presentation is useful for DBA’s as well as developers trying to get a little more out of their servers.

UPDATE:  Presentation and demo files are here: 2014-02-Bill-Barnes
