Tools of the Trade: Basic Training

  • Robert Pearl


This chapter will discuss some key tools, utilities, and scripts provided by Microsoft SQL MVPs; these are people who are continuously in the field with their clients and have created tools that offer a better way to collect and analyze data, helping the SQL community and users of SQL Server worldwide. MVPs are indeed a charitable bunch, which makes their dedication and loyalty to the Microsoft SQL Server stack a unique character trait that has earned them MVP status. I have used these tools throughout my own DBA career and will direct you to where you can acquire and learn more about them.
