Idera Offers Advice for tempDB Configuration

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SQL Server management and administration tools, today announced a new webcast in the “Secrets of SQL Server” series titled “TempDB: Performance and Manageability.” The webcast will air July 13, 2011 at 2 p.m. CT and will feature Robert L. Davis, speaker, author, member of Idera Advisors and Community Educators (ACE) program and a senior database administrator and technical lead at Microsoft.

“Because there is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ configuration of SQL Server’s tempDB system database, misconceptions and inconsistent advice abounds,” said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Products at Idera. “In this webcast, Robert will offer tools to help attendees determine the optimal tempDB configuration for their individual SQL Server environments. He will also cover how to detect, prevent and monitor for common tempDB performance problems.”
