Tracing SQL Server Performance and Stability Issues

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

  1. EXEC sp_readerrorlog;
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,
