Presentation 1: Baseline, like a Boss

How do you know when things get better? How do you know when things get worse? How can you quantify performance gains or losses? Establishing and recording baseline values is critical for comparison and analysis, but where do you start? Join me as I demo real world benchmarking in order to establish baselines for your server, and to discuss real world scenarios where it just might save your bacon.


Presentation 2: The Scientific Method for DBAs

Have you ever stopped to think about your problem solving process? Do you have a methodical approach, or do you Google in a panic and try every setting change on the first page of hits? Luckily for us, people have been developing, and optimizing methodical problem solving for centuries. Our predecessors have laid out several different approaches to problem solving leaving us to simply find the one that works for us, and implement it. The Scientific Method provides 7 steps that you can use in your every day problems as a DBA, which in the end can leave you with definite answers and proof to base your decisions. In this presentation we will ask a simple question and walk through the steps eventually (hopefully) coming to conclusion.
