We’re in a Heap of Trouble… how heap tables can get you in a bind and how to get out of it.
Everyone seems to think that disk space is unlimited these days, but for many organizations, it’s still a concern. Even if you have space available it’s often difficult to roll it into place in a timely manner. Heap tables, despite their innocent outward looks can be real performance and space hogs.

In this presentation, we take a look at how to identify and resolve these issues.

Speaker: Margaret Norkett

Summary: ...how heap tables can get you in a bind and how to get out of it. Everyone seems to think that disk space is unlimited these days, but for many organizations, it’s still a concern. Even if you have space available it’s often difficult to roll it into place in a timely manner. Heap tables, despite their innocent outward looks can be real performance and space hogs. In this presentation, we take a look at how to identify and resolve these issues.

About Margaret: has been administering and developing solutions for SQL Server since version 6.5. She is the quintessential accidental DBA beginning by writing report queries for her accounting department because her boss was too impatient to wait for their contractor DBAs to do it, and then advancing to becoming a senior level DBA with INFOR. She graduated Suma Cum Laude from South University with an Associate in Computer Science degree, and then graduated from Western Governors University with a Bachelor in Information Technology degree. She's used SSIG as both a learning tool and a sounding board for her ideas in taking her SQL Server skills to the next level. Although she's moved on from that first job to a more “normal” DBA job, she continues to learn as much as she can about SQL server from all the generous contributions in the SQL community. She is paying back some of that by sharing knowledge of her own.
