What is the best to produce user activity log ? Using triggers (insert, delete, update) is rather heavy (?) operation. Has anyone used SQL Profiler for that ? In log should be: who, what, when, workstation, table, changed fields, some data key values.
I have registered a server on to my client machine successfully,but I am not finding the current activity item in the management folder on EM.How do I see the current activity on the server.Do I need to be SA for that server?My machine has NT workstation with SQL server 7.0 on it.Any one to help?
If I run sp_who2, the following message is returned. (it also is returned randomly while using function in EM such as Backup/Restore.)
Msg 268, Level 16, State 1 You cannot run SELECT INTO in this database. The DBO would have to run sp_dboption to enable this option.
What is it??? It's buggin me......
p.s. I remember a similar problem in the past, it had to do with turning truncate on checkpoint in one of the system databases msdb/master/tempdb or something like that. I turned off all Trunc. and Select/Bulk options on these...
I have a requirment to create a activity log to log all changes that take place in my tables as they happen. All my Inserts,updates & Deletes take place inside stored procs. A windows .NET application calls the stored procs and passes the data set to the stored procs to execute them on a Sql server 2000 database.
When an update statement is run inside my stored proc, the dataset only passes me the new values. but,i will need the old value from the database before the update takes place to report in my activity log. What is the best way to do it ?
My activity log shold report a description like this
"Name Changed from 'Robert Johnson'(old value) to 'Bob Johnson'(New Value)"
Though i can do a select from the tables to get the old values and match the new values to get the differences before running the update statements, it is too much work as i have well over 100 stored procs in my application and i have to check for every single field value in a table. If only one column changed in a table containg 20 columns, i would still have to check for 20 columns before determining which fields changed.
Can any one suggest me a better solution to report the old values and new values for all the updates that take place in a database through stored Procedures.
I have a SSIS which copies data from a table to a flat file. The connection string of this file is variable and the file is reused if not exists and is created if exists.
When I run the SSIS manually from my microsoft visual studio it works properly. However, when I run this SSIS from the Job Activity Monitor, I get the following error:

A developer is running sql transactions from the application and needs to know how it is executed from database, I know I have to run Profiler Trace, but not exactly which traces , Can you please guide me?
On sql server 6.5 running on a win/nt platform my Current Activity window comes up blank when I click on it. Everything else seems to be working fine. This is a new problem, it just stopped reporting any info when I click on it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
We have a great big database (90gb) which has been populated (monopolised) by our finance team, and its full of tables that probably aren't being used at all. But know knows whats being used and what isn't or they don't have the time to go through it with me.
So I have decided to implement a procedure that logs table activity on this database, and if for example a table isn't used for a month then it will be archived off and zipped up.
I have a few ideas in my head how I can acheive this, but I am looking for some opinions and ideas from you guys?
I'm an Oracle DBA that has inherited some SQL Server 2000 databases. Can you audit a particular user in Sql Server 2000. We need to know exactly what a particular user is doing, (i.e. creating/dropping objects, and what data he is accessing)
Here is what I came up with, but it doesn't seem to be working right :eek:
select distinct (userin.changeid), userin.userid, userin.createdate as LoggedInDate, userout.createdate as LoggedOutDate, DateDiff(mm,userin.createdate,userout.createdate) as Duration from userChange userin inner join ( select * from userChange where loggedin = 0 ) userout on userin.userid = userout.userid where and userin.loggedin = 1 and userin.createdate < userout.createdate order by userin.createdate desc
We have several SQL 2000 databases on one server. One of the applications I'm responsible for has batch jobs that run for an hour; all activity is on the database. During this hour, other applications that use other databases on the same server experience time-outs. One of my coworkers did a count(*) on an empty table and it took 11 seconds.
We pay people to keep our servers up and running. Is this something they might solve by reconfiguring the server? It seems strange to me that a single database is allowed to hog all server resources. We are meeting with them later this week, and I'd like to have some knowledge about this; we don't want to BS'ed into buying a new server.
Very new to SQL server, and the database world in general. We're an old Oracle shop, and our Oracle dba's are pretty set in their ways and aren't too excited about supporting SQL server. Understandable, change is tough sometimes. Being the new kid in town, I have made it my goal to wrangle our SQL 2000/2005 environment and carve out my own little niche.
My first order of business is to do some general cleanup and documentation. So, my question is this... is there a way to determine when the last few user connection to a database were? I have a host of databases that I suspect are no longer in use, but no one can seem to identify them. Before I delete them, I definitely want to make sure they aren't being used by some off-the-beaten-path app that I am unaware of. I did a search here and a general Google search that was fruitless. I'm not the beast Googler though. :)
Any advice here will be greatly appreciated!
edit: My idea of a solution would be a query to show, say, the last 10 connections to a particular database. Username, date, time, etc. would be spectacular.
I want to analyze server (SQL 2005) activity at a specific time in the past. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a log file reflecting the information in Activity Monitor. Knowing that the sysprocesses and syslocks tables feed Activity Monitor, I thought about doing a log analysis on the master transaction log, but I'm not sure that's possible.
Is there a (different) way to achieve this?
Or is there a better approach to identifying processes that cause performance bottleneck/deadlocks?
I have created an integration services package with a script-source reading data from Active directory. Pretty much data is read and written into a sql2005 database.
I have notised that when I run the package via right-clicking the package (Under stored packagesMSDB) and selecting "Run Package" it takes about 45 minutes for it to complete successfully. The same goes if I run the package from inside Visual Studio. However, when I create a job and put this package as one of it's tasks the task takes about 1h 40min. This is more then double the time! In neither case the server is occupied with soething else. And I have tried it several times so it wasn't just an "accident".
Hi, sir, i have used Trace But it does not start automaticaly when server starts, is there any other way to track the Events, Because i have to track all the updates (Insert,Delete, UPdate etc.) of all the tables of my particuylar database .
Is there a way to kick users out of your databases if there's no activity for a certain duration of time. For example, I have a database thats being shared by 5 people. One went to lunch and locked their office just when I needed to do maintanence. I had to wait for them to get back & logout be fore I could do anything?
I recently renamed a database with sp_renamedb and created a new db with the same name as the old and restored the data into the new db. I put the old renamed db in single user mode to prevent data from becomming violated. After cycling SQL Server to flush the cache, I opened the floodgates for users. Our support line was full of calls from people saying "I'm getting the error 'Single User Mode in database DBORGINALDBNAME'. Any ideas why the application would be hitting the old database after I renamed and recycled the server?
