The samples provided in this book will help you master DMVs and also give you a tested, working, and instantly reusable SQL code library.

Every action in SQL Server leaves a set of tiny footprints. SQL Server records that valuable data and makes it visible through Dynamic Management Views, or DMVs. You can use this incredibly detailed information to significantly improve the performance of your queries and better understand what's going on inside your SQL Server system.
