Next Meeting




Midlands PASS Reboot!

Welcome to the reboot of the Midlands PASS chapter! Our meet and greet starts at 5:30 PM. We'll have a technical presentation at 6:00 PM.

Speaker: Brian Kelley, Former Microsoft Data Platform MVP (2009-2016)

Featured Presentation:

Auditing with Extended Events

Brian Kelley, Data, Infrastructure, and Security Architect Truth Solutions

Profiler and SQL Server tracing are deprecated and therefore instrumentation for new features aren’t implemented in these legacy technologies. The replacement for these older features are Extended Events. In this presentation we’ll look at why you should be using Extended Events, how to use them, what information they can provide, and how specifically to tailor their use to audit your SQL Servers. While this zeroes in on Auditing with Extended Events, it provides a basic intro to extended events for you to be able to leverage on your SQL Servers.
