Slay SQL Server Dragons In Your Sleep

Once upon a time, there lived a great king, some would say the king of all DBAs. Every evening, he retired to his castle where he enjoyed long, blissful nights of uninterrupted slumber. He awoke at his leisure, well-rested and ready to rule his domain.

Meanwhile, other DBAs toiled in the trenches. They battled frustrated users, sparred with finger-pointing developers and collapsed in exhaustion after long workdays – only to bolt upright at 3 a.m. to fight fire-breathing database dragons that scorched SQL Server performance overnight.

The monarch of monitoring

What was the king’s secret, they wondered? And how could they, too, become legendary DBAs?

Like any successful ruler, the king had an army of help, fighting his battles with the sharpest of swords and the strongest of shields. The king had Spotlight® on SQL Server.
