This is a good overview of the performance troubleshooting aspects of SQL Server. However I expected a little bit more detail on each topic more like an internals from Delaney.
I think this is a great book for people initiating on performance troubleshooting ( DBA Jr and/ or semi Sr).
If you are a highly experienced DBA looking for in depth detail, then wait for the upcoming SQL 2012 Internals from Kalen Delaney.

Great book for the experienced DBA thats looking to understand how the core of SQL server works. Lots of handy scripts included as well.

If you are a database professional than you want this book. Period! Buy it now! You will not be disappointed.

I was an avid reader of "Professional SQL Server 2008 Internals and Troubleshooting". It's always an actual great book.
With "Professional SQL Server 2012 Internals and Troubleshooting" you'll go to the next step in the same great way.
All SQL Server DBA will find something to satisfy them. And much more!
Both theoretical and practical, it leads you into the depths with profit.
I really enjoy. Hope you too :))

I instantly liked the book. The first part of the book takes the reader into the internals of SQL Server. Chapter 1 explains, briefly, the architecture of SQL Server and uses a SELECT query to show how all the internal components come together to execute & return the results back to the user. Next few chapters talk about h/w components, memory, & storage systems. The chapter on tempdb is particularly interesting as it shows the way to optimizing tempdb performance and warns us about the pitfalls of leaving the tempdb unattended. Locking & Latches have always been subjects left alone by most DBAs. This book present them in such a way that it becomes easy to understand and be friends with them again. The chapter also covers the basics of isolations levels, locks etc.
Part two of the book dives into the diagnostics and troubleshooting arena. First off, the book deals with the correct approach/best practices of troubleshooting and analysis. There are a plethora of diagnostics tools available today and sometimes the DBA is clueless about the quality of these tools. The book meticulously covers some of such solid tools like Performance Monitor, PAL, SQLDIAG, SQL Nexus, Powershell etc. There is one chapter dedicated to each of these tools. Extended events have come to the forefront with SQL Server 2012. There is now an inbuilt graphical interface that can be used. The best part is that they have a very low impact on the overall performance. Extended events are covered thoroughly in the book. The last chapter deals with SQL Server virtualization and how to use it within the enterprise.
Overall, I will give two thumbs up to the book. This can easily become a reference guide for any DBA during his day-to-day job responsibility. I will definitely recommend the book to my fellow DBAs.

If you're an experienced database administrator, wanting to bone up on what makes SQL Server 2012 tick, this book is for you. Though the title makes it clear the coverage is only SQL Server 2012, the authors cover concepts on SQL Server generally, showing how it has changed through the versions, and where it is headed. The SQLOS, for example, introduced in 2005, has SQL Server taking over some Windows operating system functions critical for performance, while leaving others. You get the history, trend, and 2012 version specifics of each key component of the massive SQL Server architecture. This book is what you need to really understand current technology in SQL Server administration and troubleshooting.

Hi,

I have written a detailed chapter-by-chapter review of this book on www DOT i-programmer DOT info, the first and last parts of this review are given here. For my review of all chapters, search i-programmer DOT info for STIRK together with the book's title.

I expected this book to give me an insight into what to do when I get various SQL Server problems. Identify the problem? How do I solve it? And can it give me an understanding as to why it occurred? Did the book fulfil these requirements?

There are two distinct parts to this book, internals and troubleshooting. The first section is more theoretical, and the second is more practical. The aim of the internals section is to provide a deeper background understanding for the subsequent troubleshooting section.

The topics covered are both diverse in terms of subject matter (e.g. hardware, concurrency, extended events) and in terms of the expected level of experience (e.g. PowerShell is introductory, and latches are advanced). Some of the subjects seem a bit off topic (Virtualization), and even esoteric (Spinlocks).

In some respects I didn't feel there was enough cohesion between the various chapter subjects. More should have been done by the editors to unite the chapters and make the flow easier. That said, what is present in each chapter is both well written and interesting, if not entirely focused on internals and troubleshooting.

There is a large degree of overlap with the 2008 version of this book (maybe 60+%), some chapters have been dropped (e.g. Management Data Warehouse), and others added (e.g. PowerShell). In many ways I think the 2008 edition of the book was more focused on the topic of troubleshooting.

Below is a chapter-by-chapter exploration of the topics covered, I've given each chapter its own rating.

Chapter 1 Architecture
This chapter provides a great overview of the main SQL Server components and how they interact, all illustrated with useful diagrams. It uses the example of running a SELECT query to introduce you to the various SQL Server components i.e. Buffer pool (plan and data caches), Relation engine (optimizer etc), and Storage engine (transactions, access, etc). This is followed by an example of an UPDATE query to introduce you to the transaction log, checkpoint process, lazy writer, dirty pages, and recovery interval. SQL Server's execution model is discussed with reference to SQLOS (a thin interface between SQL Server and the Windows OS), and some of its DMVs are introduced. This is an interesting background chapter for any SQL Server book. (5/5)

Conclusion
So did the book fulfil my expectations? Yes and no! I certainly learned more about the latest version of SQL Server.

I found all the chapters interesting and well written, however some seemed to have only a tenuous link to the central theme of troubleshooting, for example the chapters on PowerShell and Virtualization probably belong to another book.

Maybe there could have been fewer internals chapters, since often there was little linking the internals chapters to the troubleshooting chapters - just as you don't need to be a mechanic to drive a car, you don't need to know too much about internals to fix SQL Server problems.

If you want to increase your knowledge of SQL Server this is an excellent book, if you want to know more about troubleshooting this book is useful. For perhaps better books on troubleshooting I can recommend SQL Server 2012 Query Performance Tuning by Grant Fritchey and Troubleshooting SQL Server by Jonathan Kehayias and Ted Krueger.
