The ability to recreate a production database workload on another server is an incredibly useful tool to have. In this course, you will learn to do this with ease on SQL Server’s Distributed Replay.
The ability to replay a production database workload in controlled circumstances can be very useful for testing, in both functionality and performance testing. In this course, Simulating Production Workloads with SQL Server Distributed Replay, you will learn how Distributed Replay offers a way to replay a workload from multiple clients, preserving the order of operations in the process. First, you will go through the setup of Distributed Replay (DReplay). Next, you will explore all the necessary configurations in order to capture, process, and run a replay. Finally, you will discover options for monitoring the effects of running the trace. By the end of this course, you will have a foundational understanding of SQL Server Distributed Reply and how it can help you recreate a production database’s workload on another server. Topics:
