Interrogating the Transaction Log

Frank Gill, Senior Systems Engineer Concurrency

Without the transaction log, SQL Server would have no way of maintaining a consistent and durable view of its data. It would be pandemonium!!! Thankfully the transaction log is there and we can all breathe easier. In this session, you will learn how SQL Server uses the transaction log to maintain the durability and consistency of its data, along with methods for reading the transaction log and identifying active transactions.

Over the past several years, he has worked extensively with SQL Server solution in Azure, including Managed Instance. When not administering databases or geeking out on internals, Frank volunteers at the Art Institute of Chicago and reads voraciously.
