Small Scale Data Collection Using PowerShell
– Going NSA Style!
 While we are not the NSA, certain vital data needs to be collected (for example audit data, trace data, session information, performance data etc.) all to a central SQL Server repository, for analysis and safekeeping. In this session, we will see how freely-available PowerShell code can be used to collect data from multiple SQL Server instances/databases/OS. At the end of this session, you will have the knowledge and ability to collect pretty much any data in a central repository in a scheduled manner or online with just a couple of lines of code, all in a manner that works specifically for you!If time permits, we will dive into advanced techniques in data collection like parallelizing the data collection to collect millions of rows of data in a matter of minutes.
