Car crash queries - 7:00pm

What happens when a query goes wrong. We’ve all had the  occasion where a query was running fine and then suddenly it doesn’t. You then get the query from profiler and run it in management studio and it runs fine, but your app is still running slowly. What is happening? In this session, Simon takes a deeper look at what causes the query to fail and why you get odd results when you run in management studio. Importantly you will find out what to do avoid this happening on your system.
