Featured Presentation:

Lock, Block, and Two Smoking CPUs

Daniel Maenle, Database Administrator Jack Henry & Associates

This session is about Dan Maenle’s personal experience rewriting the locking mechanism that his company was using. As well as migrating from a locking table to using the sp_getapplock stored procedure. This session will cover the ups and downs that he experienced in the transition. Dan will also discuss how this technique can be a better performing approach to gaining locks that could be used by the application or other queries to optimize concurrency.

About Daniel:
Daniel Maenle is a Database Administrator at Jack Henry & Associates and has been working with SQL server since 2011. He spoke at SQL Saturday Kansas City last year presenting on this same topic.
