TOP 5 costly Stored Procedures in a SQL Server Database

I was recently doing a query to find out the Stored Procedures which took maximum time to execute. Here’s the query (thanks to gbn) I executed on a sample database (AdventureWorks) using SQL Server 2005/2008:

SELECT TOP 5, max_logical_reads, max_elapsed_time
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats a
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(sql_handle) hnd
INNER JOIN sys.sysobjects obj on hnd.objectid =
ORDER BY max_logical_reads DESC



If you know of a better way, please share it in the comments section.
