Free eBook – SQL Server DMV Starter Pack

Came across a free ebook which describes Dyamic Management Views (DMVs) in good detail as well as providing around 30 useful DMV scripts including T-SQL to:

  • Get a count of SQL connections by IP address
  • Missing Indexes in current database by Index Advantage
  • Index Read/Write stats (all tables in current DB)
  • Look at current expensive or blocked requests
  • Shows the memory required by both running (non-null grant_time) and waiting queries (null grant_time)

and many more…

The book and the scripts can be downloaded from Red-Gate. If it ever disappears from there, contact me and i’ll try to pass a copy on.
