Inside the SQL Server 2008 Data Collector
The SQL Server 2008 Data Collector provides some low overhead data collection functionality to store performance and diagnostics historic information of your SQL Server instances. See how you can use this information to troubleshoot problems and to provide trend analysis for the performance of your SQL Server instance. In addition to show the basics and architecture of the new Data Collector, this session focuses on the predefined system data collection sets that are provided by SQL Server 2008 that automatically collect data from the disk usage, instance activity, and queries statistics. You will learn about the Disk Usage collection set, which gathers statistics regarding the growth of the data and transaction log database files; explore the Server Activity collection set which focus on the server activity and resources utilization; and learn about the Query Statistics collection set which collects data regarding the queries running in your instance.
