SQL Server 2008 :: Job Activity Monitor - Swapping Order Of Columns

May 28, 2015

Is there a way to permanently change the order of the columns in Job Activity Monitor?

I'd like to move Duration to the right of Step Name, but this only lasts so long as I have JAM open. Once I close it and re-open, JAM goes back to its default column order. Google gives me nothing but the temporary "drag and drop" method that I already know about.

Setup And Upgrade :: Activity Monitor Shuts Down If Connect To Instance Its Monitoring With Performance Monitor

Aug 19, 2015

If I'm on a remote machine, meaning a computer not in the WSFC cluster, and I open SSMS 2014, point it to a SQL Instance, and open activity monitor:

1.  I get all the panes and charts except % Processor Time.

2.  Then, if I authenticate to the cluster's domain by mapping a drive with valid domain credentials, I'm free to put performance counters in the Perfmon - - - but SQL Activity Monitor shuts down with“The Activity Monitor is unable to execute queries against server SQL-V01INSTANCE1..Activity monitor for this instance will be placed into a paused state.Use the context menu in the overview pane to resume the activity monitor.

Additional information:  Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))(Mscorlib)”

3.  Of course, the Activity monitor can't be resumed via the context menu. Removing counters and closing the perfmon do not work.  I dropped the mapped drive and rebooted the machine.  That brought back 95% of the information in the Activity monitor.

4.  Further experimentation showed that any mapping of drive shares present on the SQL Server to the computer running SSMS cut off functionality of the 'overview' pane in the remote machine's SQL Activity monitor -- the monitor that had been trying to watch the server offering the shares.

SQL Server Agent - Job Activity Monitor

Apr 19, 2007

I'm hoping that someone has experienced this problem before and knows how to get round it.

The problem we are having is that we have a job that is scheduled to run at 4:00 am each morning, for the past 6 weeks it has done this with no problem. However, this morning it failed. we know it failed because it didn't produce the results it was supposed to. However the monitor said that the job had completed successfully. On examining the history of the job we found that the job was still running!!! When we tried to stop the job by right clicking and selecting the appropriate action. The action available to us was to start the job.

After arguing for a bit we decided to try and run the job again. We did this and found that the job running in the history screen terminated with an error and than ran and completed successfully.

Confused? So are we any ideas or solutions gratefully received

Permissions In SQL Server 2005 To Allow Users To View The Management Activity Monitor?

Sep 27, 2006

For SQL Server 2000 we have a user login mapped to msdb with database role membership of db_datareader and public checked. This seems to allow the developers to view the Management Activity monitor. For SQL Server 2005 the same mapping is in place but the developers cannot view the Management Activity monitor. Developers are NOT granted the sysadmin role, and should not have that role.

What permissions need to be set for SQL Server 2005 to allow users to view the Management Activity monitor? They should not be allowed to take actions on the activities.

SQL Server 2005 Start Jobs Window And Job Activity Monitor Do Not Show Job Status Correcly

Mar 14, 2007


We have development and user acceptance (UA) servers. When I start a job on the development server, on the management studio, Start Jobs window and Job activity windows indicate "Executing" until the end of the job and finish with "success" or "failure"

But on the UA server, second after I start a job, Start Jobs window comes up with "success" or failure" and Job activity monitor says "idle" but Job continues to log without any error message and updates the tables. So these two windows are not reliable at all. I have to add that I have only job operator rights on the UA server.

Does anybody know what the reason is ?

Job Activity Monitor

Sep 10, 2007


I have a problem with Job Activity Monitor.

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:

Executed as user: REDCAMadminsql2k5. Microsoft (R) SQL Server Execute Package Utility Version 9.00.3042.00 for 64-bit Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1984-2005. All rights reserved.

SQL Activity Monitor Logs

Oct 5, 2007

Hi All,

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?

Any input would be appreciated.

Service Pack 1 And Job Activity Monitor

Feb 6, 2007


I've been using the Job Activity Monitor quite a lot and last night I installed Service Pack 1 for SQL Server 2005. I've noticed now that I only have a "Start Job at Step" option when I right-click a job. Whereas I used to have just Start Job or both Start Job and Start Job at Step options.

The problem is that Starting a Job at a Step, produces a modal dialog box which prevents further access to Job Activity Monitor until the job is complete.

Does anyone have any comments regarding this?

Thanks in advance,

SQL 2012 :: FTP Transfer Fails Via Job Activity Monitor

Oct 15, 2014

I have a SSIS package set up that will transfer a file from a location on the network drive and transfer it over FTP to another location.

When I manually run the package, the file is transfer with no errors. But when the job is automated (via Job Activity Monitor) the transfer fails?

I have set the ProtectionLevel of the package to "EncryptSensitiveWithUserKey" and also converted the package to a Development Model. The settings for the FTP is saved within the package.

What am I missing? below is the error message

SQL 2012 :: Job In Rollback Not Showing In Activity Monitor?

Feb 22, 2015

We have killed a job which is now in KILLEDROLL BACK state. Job activity monitor is not showing any running jobs but I can see the SPID of that job. When tried to kill again its giving the message ‘command completed successfully‘, not able to get the percentage or time for the roll back to complete.

Another DBA tried to create a snapshot and it was stuck and I believe it was because of this ROLLBACK as both were using same Database.

Large Number Of Processes In Activity Monitor

Jun 4, 2007


We have a Windows App and Web App that share business objects which points to a single database. When a Windows user logs in, an average of 50 processes are created in the first few seconds and never go away. The details window is blank and they all remain sleeping from that point on.

I have stepped through the code to see if there is anything odd going on but most of the processes are created when validating the number of parameters the stored procedure has or the length of the stored procedure name. This translates to 1000-1500 processes on average.

Is this normal? Will it hurt performance? Is there a way to remove them?

Change Login-Info For Activity-Monitor And Sp_who

Sep 26, 2007


we have one 'application'-user in sysusers that makes the connect to SqlServer for all users, for example:

Application Login-User: Thomas
DB-Connect-User: AppUser

With this solution, in Activity-Monitor or with sp_who I don't know, what is the real name of the connected user.
Any possibility to change the login-information after the connect, so that i can see 'Thomas' in Activity-Monitor or with sp_who?

Thanks for your help.

User Connection Changes In Activity Monitor When Running Stored Proc

May 16, 2007

Please forgive the simplicity of this question - I am not the dba type. When I connect to a server and look at my connection attributes in activity monitor, the user column shows the correct information for my domainusername. When I run a certain stored procedure in that connection, the domainusername changes to another person. We are not using execute as, setuser, or anything special to explicitly change the user. The stored procedure is in a schema that is owned by dbo (principal_id = 1 - I verified by checking sys.database_principals.)

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

John Hennesey

Cannot See Sql Server 2008 Instance Databases In Performance Monitor

Apr 9, 2008

im trying to measure the amount of CPU used in a backup and restore, using the SQL Server Databases: Backup Restore counter in Perfmon.

I can select The counter, but it does not let me select an instance database to monitor.

see image:

I have 3 instances on my machine, 2 sql 2005 and 1 sql 2008. why do these instances not appear? i dont know how to set up this monitoring.

if i type LOCALHOST or in the "Select counters from computer" text box i can see all databases under my sql 2005 instances, but not the ones under the 2008 instances. I have disabled all sql server 2005 services and can confirm none of the sql 2008 instance databases are showing up.

this is a huge problem, especially for when i start stress testing sql server 2008 in preperation for upgrading.

anyone any ideas on why i cannot see sql server 2008 instances in perfmon? I have tried from a remote pc also with the same results.

Jul 20, 2005

All,To make a long story short, we are swapping out the "knock-off" drivesthat the NA purchased on E-Bay in one of our production SQL Servers(SQL Server 2000 Enterprise) this weekend for brand new ones (Compaq15K RPM 32GB drives). We are currently experiencing ASR almost on adaily basis and it is really causing a disription in service. SO, TheNetwork Admin ahs made this decison to replace these drives in attemptto solve this. These new drives will be imaged with ALL of the currentdata on the "knock-off' drives and will be plugged back in to thisdatabase server and brought back up .This Server also happens tocurrently be a subscriber in Merge Replication as well. Besidesstopping replication to this subscriber is there any other tasks thatI need to do or concerns that I need to be knowledgable about or lookfor when we bring this database server backup on line this weekend?Thanks Travis. :)

SQL Server 2008 :: Using Decimal Columns In SUM Function

Jul 21, 2015

Recently I have come across a requirement where i need to design a table.

There are some columns in table like below with DECIMAL Datatype:




Based on my knowledge, i know that values before Floating-Point will not be more than 4 digits.

Now as per MSDN,

Precision => 1 - 9
Storage bytes => 5

so i can create column as:

BldgLengthDECIMAL(6,2) DEFAULT 0


BldgLengthDECIMAL(9,2) DEFAULT 0

Now while reading some articles, i came to know that when we do some kind of operation like SUM Or Avg, on above column then result might be larger than current data type.

So some folks suggested me that i should keep some extra space/digits considering above MATH functions, to avoid an Arithmetic Over Flow error.

So my question is what should be value of DataType for above column ?

SQL Server 2008 :: Joining Two Columns To Same Table?

Aug 17, 2015

I have two tables: "Users" and "Messages".

The Messages table has a "UserFromID" and an "UserToID", indicating a message was sent from a user to a user.

The Users table has a UserID, FirstName, LastName and UserGroup.

Im trying to get all messages sent by or to a user in a specific group, with the First and Last names of the sending and receiving users.

Here is my tables and data:

CREATE TABLE tmp_users (userID INT, GroupID INT, UserName VARCHAR(10), FullName VARCHAR(100))
CREATE TABLE tmp_Messages (aKey INT IDENTITY, FromUserID INT, ToUserID INT, msg VARCHAR(100))
INSERT INTO tmp_users VALUES (1,1,'John','John Smith')
INSERT INTO tmp_users VALUES (2,1,'Jane','Jane Doh')
INSERT INTO tmp_users VALUES (3,1,'Bob','Bob Newheart')


The query Im running so far is wrong, but here it is...

SELECT t.FromUserID, t.ToUserID, t.msg, u.UserName AS UserFrom,
u.GroupID AS FromGroup, u2.UserName AS UserTo, u2.GroupID AS ToGroup
FROM tmp_Messages t
LEFT JOIN (SELECT UserID, GroupID, UserName FROM tmp_users WHERE GroupID = 3) u

[Code] .....

im missing the details of one of the users.I know what the problem is, I just cant figure out how to get this working without using temp tables, which I cant do in the production version.
