There are a handful of wait types that almost all SQL Server instances will see on a regular basis and it is very important to understand what they are and how to troubleshoot them. We will first see how to identify the top waits and discuss in some detail what each one actually means in relation to your SQL Server performance and overall operation. We will then identify some of the core techniques you can use to troubleshoot the bottleneck and discuss what options you may have to minimize the impact they are having on your system. Properly understanding wait stats will go a long way towards ensuring you have a good handle on how your system is performing at any given time.
