TempDB 101 Plus

TempDB is not your ordinary user database and should definitely not be treated like one.  The usage patterns and internals dictate that the configuration, monitoring and usage be done in a different way to get the best performance. We will see why aspects such as configuration and file placement play such a key role and why you need to plan ahead for TempDB.  See how to detect the memory and space usage associated with the various users in TempDB along with some of the most common performance related scenarios that you will encounter with a well-used TempDB database. Both DBA’s and Developer’s should understand the concepts of TempDB and how some relatively simple changes in code or configuration can potentially make a huge difference in the overall performance of SQL Server.
