Creating Traces

Every DBA is going to have their own preferences as to what events they want to trace, as well as what columns they want to see in terms of statistical metrics. That said, the up_wl_trace_sql procedure below allows the DBA to capture the SQL executions likely needed (individual SQL executions, procedure runs, plus SQL calls from each procedure run) to obtain the majority of statistics desired; excluding Microsoft system operations (SQL Agent, etc.) and allowing filters to be set on CPU, Reads, and Duration.

* up_wl_trace_sql

-- Script is available in the Online Code Depot

The procedure’s one required input is a trace file name written to the server. The trace will have to be manually stopped with a couple of commands that require the trace number. This trace number is outputted when the above procedure is run. If, for example, the trace number was one, the following commands would need to be issued for the file to be closed and available for analysis:

exec sp_trace_setstatus 1,0
exec sp_trace_setstatus 1,2
