Beyond SELECT: Query Tuning for Data Manipulation

Your server has dozens of CPUs, terabytes of RAM, and solid-state drives, and yet your UPDATE query still takes hours. Why?

Not only will you learn about potential issues involving data pages, locks, and the transaction log, but also how to spot problems before execution and what commands you can use to improve performance.
