Evolve your approach to Application Performance Monitoring by adopting five best practices that are outlined and explored in this e-book, brought to you in partnership with BMC.

The following two undocumented stored procedures will do a miracle to your efforts to trace issues in SQL Server:

  1. EXEC sp_readerrorlog;
  2. DBCC LOG('DATABASE_NAME', 3);
The first can be used to find failures, backup procedures and other goodies in the database log. The second can be used to trace heavy UPDATE, DELETE and INSERT transactions  in the transaction log of a specific database.

Keep Performing,

Learn tips and best practices for optimizing your capacity management strategy with the Market Guide for Capacity Management, brought to you in partnership with BMC.
