Looking For Tools To Monitor Sql And Applications

Jul 20, 2005

I am looking for the right tools to do application monitoring.I'm hoping to find one single tool that can do the entire job but ifit does not exist then a few monitoring apps would do as well.I need the ability to do the standard things like testing for ping,checking for windows services running and restarting them after somethreshold is met, and wmi.Some of the more tricky things I need it to do are:* Parse log files looking for specific error codes, and the ability toset an alert only if it sees that error X times over some period oftime.* Run custom slq queries like row counts and max values returned froma query and if that condition is met X times over some period oftime.* Run an external app that does its own custom testing and act on itsresults, which could be to parse the result file from the app.Keep in mind cost is not the isssue right now - so this can befreeware to some type of enterprise solution that our company can use.Does anyone know of any tools that you can point me towards?Thanks...

SQL 2012 :: SSAS Actions Not Appearing In Excel 2010?

Nov 28, 2012

I have an SSAS cube that i want to add some actions to. I've had problems adding a reporting action to the cube so decided just to add a URL action instead. Start simple and build on the concepts...

So i add a new action, give it a name, set the Target Type to Cells, Taget object to All Cells. I've put no condition on the action since i want it to appear all the time.

The action content type is set to URL the action expression is set to [URL] I've also set a caption of "Google" under the additional properties and said that the caption is MDX (I'm aware that it isn't but i do intend to expand on this...).

I then build and deploy my cube, call up excel (2010) and then create a pivot table off the back of the cube but when i right-click the cells in the pivot table and go to "additional actions" it tells me that there are none specified.

SQL 2012 :: Using Database Mail To Send Emails Based On Certain Actions

Jun 12, 2014

I have been using database mail for quite a few years now. I started using it with SQL Server 2005 and then it worked fine. Then we went over to SQL 2012 and the problems started. At first I could not get any e-mails out and read a post by Microsoft that a patch needs to come out but not available yet. That was in 2012. Presumably the patch came out with windows updates and my DB Mail started working. Now, however, I have the problem that some e-mails do get sent but the majority failed.

I use this so that whenever a user captures certain data to update a person's status on the database then an automatic e-mail will be sent to that person to inform them of their status at this company.

SQL Tools :: Cannot Save Server Profiler Trace File

Dec 9, 2011

This is for SQL Server 2005 SP4 Build 5266. We have been having performance issues in production. There are tight deadlines to be met and it is important that they are solved promptly.

Yesterday we replicated the situation in the acceptance testing environment. The jobs take 8 hours to run and we started at 2:00 PM.

Just before the jobs ran I set up an SQL Server Profiler trace to catch processes with a duration of longer then 12 seconds. I set it to save the results to a database table.

Last night I checked the table at 5:00 PM and there were entries in the table. However, I could be mistaken.

At 9:00 PM I checked the table and it was empty.

This morning I arrived at work and checked SQL Server Profiler. The trace was running and within SQL Server Profiler, there are 100s of results. I stopped the trace. However, checking the table, it is empty.

I thought I would be able to save the trace results to a file. When I chose "Save As" from the file menu, all the options are greyed out (trace file, trace template, trace table, etc).

The results are there but there is no way of saving them and no way of exporting them. How could this have happened?

Is there a location, where SQL Server Profiler saves the results in a temporary space. I may be able to open them and retrieve them. How can I save the results? Why are all my options greyed out?

Integration Services :: 2012 Data Tools Crashing On Windows 2012 R2?

May 26, 2015

SQL Server 2012 Data Tools was working fine for me but something must've changed, now every time I try to create a new SSIS project I get:

The server threw an exception. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80010105 (RPC_E_SERVERFAULT)).

When I try to open an existing project I get:

exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation

external component has thrown an exception (SSISUpgrade)

The issue seems to only arise with SSIS projects.I have already uninstalled SQL Server 2012 and reinstalled it and that didn't work.I tried to install Visual Studio 2012 Data Tools with BI and that also crashes when I try to create an SSIS project.Output of SQL Server SELECT @@VERSION is:

SQL 2012 :: Trace File Sizes

Jul 30, 2014

I am in the middle of capturing a workload to try and tune a SQL instance and was wondering what kinds of sizes people capture in terms of traces. I am only 1 day into a capture and I believe a typical workload would be a week long capture and I am already at 10GB of files. I am only capturing rpc_completed and sql_batch_completed.

What sizes of workloads do other people capture and then where do you analyse them, do you have particular dedicated server for this kind of thing as at present I am looking to use my local PC. Also what rollover file sizes do people tend to use, I am currently using 1GB.

SQL 2012 :: How To Trace For Parallel Queries

Nov 6, 2015

what the ideal CPU count and Max Degree of Parallelism are for a 3rd party database server.The server has 12 CPUs, 32GB RAM and all database sizes add up to < 30GB so they can all fit in memory (I tried to force this by doing a select * from every table). On certain payroll days, the CPU gets maxed out to 100% for a few seconds.

MAXDOP was originally set to the default 0. We later changed it to 8 based on several 'best-practices' articles. However the vendor suggests to change it to 1 (no parallelism), while others suggest changing it to 4, so that one run-away query doesn't hog most of the CPUs.

I'd like to find out how many CPUs are actually being used by queries. There is a Degree of Parallelism event in URL.... The BinaryData column says :

0x00000000, indicates a serial plan running in serial.
0x01000000, indicates a parallel plan running in serial.
>= 0x02000000 indicates a parallel plan running in parallel.- What does "parallel plan running in serial" mean ?

I see a lot of 0x01000000, and a few 0x08000000's in my trace.How can i determine whether one query is hogging CPUs and if reducing it to 4 will work?

SQL 2012 :: Profiler - Trace Direct Queries Only?

Oct 21, 2015

Is there a way to setup a trace to show only direct TSQL statements triggered on my server? note I don't want to capture Procedure calls or the statements called within the procs.

Actually many people are firing direct SQL statements on server. And some are coming from entity framework as well. I just want to capture those.

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.

SQL 2012 :: How To Get Previous Statements In A Batch

Feb 25, 2015

I have an interesting problem. A number of spids are being blocked by a single select statement. The select statement is the same as returned from sp_who2, sysprocesses, sp_whoisactive of dbcc inputbuffer. It is not waiting on anything and has status as sleeping.

Clearly it is not 'just' a sleeping select statement as I can see over a thousand locks held by the spid on 2 user databases and tempdb. I'm working on the theory there is a begin transaction with a bunch of statements and no closing commit. But I want to be able to prove that. How can I show what statements were previously executed as part of this transaction?

Additional Info: SQL 2012 Enterprise Edition. This is a test server but is a reproduction of a live issue. At this point the application team cannot isolate the code causing the problem, only the set of processes the code resides in.

SQL 2012 :: Server Profiler - Failed To Start A New Trace

Aug 3, 2014

I am attempting to create a new trace but I get the following error message: "failed to start a new trace".

I have been doing some digging and as I understand it, I had to find the directory Profiler uses for temporary files. So, I typed the following in the command window "SET TMP" and I received the following reply:


Now, according to the forum: [URL] ...

I am supposed to check that the system folder pointed to by the TMP environment variable exists and is not crammed with files.

Well, when I went to the directory C:UsersRossAppDataLocalTemp, it is indeed full of both files and directories. The size is 16.3 MB and has 133 files and 63 folders.

When I had a look at the Environment Variables window and chose TMP the value is "%USERPROFILE%AppDataLocalTemp" which according to my limited understanding is the equivalent to C:UsersRossAppDataLocalTemp.

So, what I am wondering is am I supposed to totally clear out this directory? I am not too keen on doing this because I don't want to stuff my PC up.

SQL Server 2012 :: Query Execution Not Showing Up In Profiler Trace

Aug 22, 2014

Set up a trace with the events RPC:Completed, SQL:BatchCompleted, SQL:BatchStarting, and SQL:StmtCompleted.

When I issue the statement: SELECT * FROM XyzView there is nothing captured in Profiler. If I script out the view and then execute the select statement that defines the view, it does show up in Profiler.

I've tried adding a lot of the other events, i.e. SP:StmtCompleted and the various other StmtStarting events and the trace still does not capture anything.

Am I capturing the wrong events or is this known behavior? My goal is to see what the overhead is for using a view versus persisting the results of the view as a table and referencing that instead. The view in question is against static data, joins 9 tables, and is referenced a lot.

I can use the stats generated when I execute the select that defines the view but I still find this to be curious behavior so I assume I'm doing something wrong.

SQL 2012 :: Does Trace Flag 2371 Indirectly Reduces CPU Usage

Oct 13, 2015

After carefully analyzing the situation for almost a month, I pulled the trigger and made an exception at work; we did enable trace flag 2371. We have some tables with billion of rows and outdated statistics causing horrible plans. Tried several methods to update those, but did not solve the problem or was too CPU intensive, causing other issues.

Anyway, one of the side effects I am seeing so far is average vCPU went down by almost 40%. Nothing out of usual (besides the flag) has been enabled or was executed. So my assumption is, CPU hungry plans are now gone or reduced.

SQL 2012 :: Can See Last Copied Files In Log Shipping Monitor Reports As Well In Proc

Jan 30, 2015

At one of our client side a wired log shipping issues has come up.while monitoring those two server i noticed that although log-shipping report says both server are in sync, report displays information related to both backup and restore , it doesn't shows information related to copy that is when was last file copied and last file copy column is showed blank. Same is when i execute proc "sp_help_log_shipping_monitor" . I get same result ...

When i expand copy job history to analyse its what i found is although job has executed successfully , but in depth reading each steps says that no .trn file was copied .

My copy directory is at secondary server itself where .trn files are placed.And from this location itself files are begin restored.

SQL server and agent on both servers are run by same domain account ....

'Team A' Has No records for '01/02/2014' and '01/03/2014' so I need to insert values of '01/01/2014' StartDate for Team A for the missing dates

So 'Team A' will now have 3 records

Team A2014-01-01 00:00:00.00010
Team A2014-01-02 00:00:00.00010
Team A2014-01-03 00:00:00.00010

'Team B' Has No records for '01/03/2014' so I need to insert values of '01/02/2014' StartDate for Team B for the missing date

So 'Team B' will now have 3 records

Team B2014-01-01 00:00:00.00030
Team B2014-01-02 00:00:00.00040
