Advanced Data Collection and Reporting with the MDW
SQL Server 2008 introduced the Data Collector and Management Data Warehouse (MDW) for helping track down performance problems with low overhead for the monitored server. This session goes deep into the warehouse and shows you how you can write your own reports with Reporting Services leveraging stored procedures and views provided in the MDW database.
Principal Program Manager
I'm currently a Principal Program Manager for the SQL Server Manageability team. During my 15 years at Microsoft as a program manager, I shipped or been deeply involved in the following products: Project Houston, SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 7.0, SQL Server 6.5, Ashton-Tate/Microsoft SQL Server for OS2 (I was at Ashton-Tate at the time doing performance testing on the product), Excel 2003, Access 2003, Access XP, Access 2000, VB7 (before it became VB.Net), SQL Server and Oracle Database tools for Visual Studio 6.0, SQL Server data tools for Visual Studio 5.0 including Visual Interdev 1.0. Prior to Microsoft, I worked on all versions of the dBASE product line starting with dBASE IV with Ashton-Tate and Borland. In 1982, I started my DBA career in the United States Coast Guard developing a drug smuggling database using PrimeBasic. While moonlighting with the Coast Guard, a group of my fellow crewmates started developing accounting solutions based on dBASE II and dBASE III using the Small Business Technology (SBT) accounting software in the San Francisco Bay area.
