Session: DBA/DEV - Advanced - Troubleshooting Always On Availability Group Failovers

Speaker: Sourabh Agarwal | When: 10th Aug, 13:30 – 14:45

Abstract: Unexpected failovers or Unsuccessful failovers are by far the most common problem surrounding Always On Availability Groups. Troubleshooting failover related issues can be a challenge and time consuming. In order to effectively troubleshooting these issues data needs to be collected and analyzed from different servers and replicas. Things get further complicated by the fact that there are multiple logs which needs to be looked at and that these logs are in different time zone formats. In this session, we will look at how to easily identify the reasons for failover of an Availability Group and what new capabilities are being introduced to help with the analysis of AG failovers.
Key Learning: Tools and Techniques to troubleshoot Always On Availability Groups.
Demos: Tips to troubleshoot Always On Availability Groups.

We will share tips and tricks and demos on how certain settings on both SQL/Linux OS can impact performance.
Key Learning: Deploying SQL Server on Linux Best practices for running SQL Server on Linux. Performance impact of OS/SQL properties when running SQL Server on Linux.
