Monitor Activities on your SQL Server 2005/2008

Have you heard about or used SQL Server MVP Adam Machanics Who is Active? This is a must have script for DBA’s and if you have been using sp_who or sp_who2, then you will love it.

In short, this stored procedure helps you monitor a bunch of stuff on your SQL Server quickly and efficiently. You can monitor locks, tasks, resources, sleeping SPID’s and much more. You can read more over here as well as the change log.

The best part is unlike other scripts, this script is updated regularly by Adam, making it production box stuff. I am excited about sharing this script with my DBA friends and I hope you make the most of it too.
