  PRESENTATION:
Replacing Profiler with Extended Events with Erin Stellato

DESCRIPTION
Extended Events was released over 10 years ago, with SQL Server 2008, and DBAs and developers alike *still* prefer Profiler. However, if you want to troubleshoot anything related to new features, you have to use Extended Events. If you've tried XE and struggled, or if you've been thinking about it but just aren't sure where to begin, then come to this session. Using your existing knowledge and experience, we bridge the gap between Profiler and Extended Events with demos, starting with the Profiler UI you know and love, and ending with an understanding of how to leverage functionality in the Extended Events UI for data analysis. By the end of this session, you’ll know how to use Extended Events in place of Profiler to continue the tasks you've been doing for years, and you'll have the foundation to better understand how you can leverage Extended Events to troubleshoot other issues in ways not previously possible.
