Introduction to Extended Events in SQL Server 2012 – Martin Cairney

Extended Events is an extended event handling system for SQL Server. It has a highly scalable and highly configurable architecture that allows administrators to collect as much or as little information as is necessary to troubleshoot or identify a problem. Extended Events were introduced in SQL Server 2008, but had not GUI interface for the definition and deployment of the Extended Event sessions.

This presentation will provide an introduction to the Extended Events concept as well as demonstrating how easy it has become to define and manage an Extended Event session in SQL Server 2012 using Management Studio.
