Statistics Starter


Statistics Starter

Have you been updating statistics as part of your maintenance plan, even though you’re not really sure what they are? Have you been asking yourself where statistics exist, how to find them, and what people mean when they say “check statistics”? Do you look at the database options for statistics and wonder if they really matter? It’s time to end the guessing and start understanding the basics about statistics. In this session I’ll answer these questions using straight-forward demos and real-world examples. And if you haven’t been updating statistics as part of your maintenance plan don’t worry, I’ll get you started.
