Our technical session this month is from Richard Munn ( b | t ) .
Richard has been a DBA for longer than he cares to admit. Currently based in Swindon, he’s worked on all sorts – large and small, and cares passionately about each and every one of them. He also likes email, and thinks that Project Managers are funny.
Policy-based what ?!?
Beginning with SQL Server 2008, Policy-based Management was added to the DBA’s toolkit to ease administration, but it only goes so far. This session will cover the principles of Policy-based Management, and we’ll take a look at how we can make it work for us, as opposed to just telling us something is not right. We’ll cover PBM and its insides, Alerts, Operators, Scheduled Jobs, and who knows, perhaps even some Extended Events!
