SQL Server 2008 Extended Events - high performance eventing system

I’ve written two articles on SQLTeam.com about a great new feature in SQL Server 2008 called Extended Events. They are the new low level, high performance eventing system in SQL Server. They use less system resources and provide better tracking of SQL Server performance than previous methods like Perfmon and SQL Trace/Profiler events.


1. Introduction to SQL Server 2008 Extended Events

This is an introductory article where we take a look at performance troubleshooting and system monitoring and what they lack in previous SQL Server versions. After that we get to know the Extended Events architecture, new terminology and we try them out with a simple example.


2. Advanced SQL Server 2008 Extended Events with Examples

Part 2 of the series takes a look at some performance considerations we must be aware of when using Extended Events like synchronous or asynchronous target target, predicate short circuiting and event action size. After we take a look at 7 examples that show a different way we can use them to troubleshoot our system. Examples are meant to show Extended Events power and give some ideas on how to use them for more advanced monitoring.
