I’m gonna be honest with you: I’m not gonna build another First Responder Kit.
It’s established, it’s open source, and it’s badass. I poured a ton of work into it over the years, and starting from scratch seems like a bad use of my time.
I totally encourage you to help continue to build it. I learned a ton working on that stuff, and it was an incredibly valuable and rewarding experience.
It’s time for fresh eyes, ears, and fingers on it, though.
Any Tool Can See
Using any tool that returns a given set of information about wait stats, query plans, indexes, or whatever about SQL Server will show you roughly the same problems.
Roughly. Some better than others. Some I have no idea.
Some not so much.
The point is, I can teach you to find problems with the tool you’re using, or help you find a tool that does.
I can also teach you how to solve them.
Nothing New But The Name
My thing over here is coaching. Helping you become better at whatever it is you wanna do.
Every tool is a wrapper for what’s inside SQL Server. Tools are interchangeable, mostly.
Knowing how use and interpret them in a meaningful way is not.
