SUMMARY

If you are using Microsoft SQL Server 2000, you must apply SQL Server 2000 Services Pack 3a (SP3a) before you use the script that is described in this article.

For more information about how to obtain SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
290211  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290211/ ) How to obtain the latest SQL Server 2000 service pack
This article is an update for SQL Server 2000 or later versions of SQL Server of the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article, which applies to Microsoft SQL Server 7.0:
251004  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/251004/ ) How to monitor SQL Server 7.0 blocking
This article documents the usage and design of a stored procedure that you can use to diagnose blocking and performance issues. For a description of how to understand and resolve blocking, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
224453  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224453/ ) Understanding and resolving SQL Server 7.0 or 2000 blocking problems
In Microsoft SQL Server 2005, you can also use the Blocked Process Report event class in SQL Server Profiler to capture the information about a task that has been blocked for more than a specified amount of time.

For more information about the Blocked Process Report event class, visit the following Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Web site:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms191168.aspx (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms191168.aspx)

MORE INFORMATION

The following description of the sp_blocker_pss08 stored procedure captures this information. This information also applies to SQL Server 2005.
  • The starting time (according to the computer that is running SQL Server) so that this sampling of blocking can be time-aligned with other performance information, such as a Microsoft Windows NT Performance Monitor log or a SQL Profiler log.
  • Information about connections to SQL Server, by querying the sysprocesses system table.
  • Information about lock resources, by querying the syslockinfo system table.
  • Information about resource waits, by running DBCC SQLPERF(WAITSTATS).
  • The current running SQL Server Batch for connections that are blocked by others or blocking others, by running the DBCC INPUTBUFFER statement.
  • The ending time, according to the computer that is running SQL Server.
The stored procedure was created with the following optimizations to reduce the effect on performance and blocking by running this stored procedure:
  • There is no output generated unless at least one connection is waiting on a resource.
  • The sysprocesses and syslockinfo system tables from the master database are queried directly, to increase performance and to prevent this stored procedure from becoming blocked. Therefore, this stored procedure is specific to Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later versions of SQL Server.
  • A small worktable is created by the cursor to obtain the DBCC INPUTBUFFER output; this should have no noticeable effect on the usage in the tempdb database.
  • Because the blocking can change while gathering the information, a fast mode exists, which increases performance by decreasing the results to relevant rows of the sysprocesses and syslockinfo system tables.
  • If trying to track non-lock resource waits, a latch mode exists, which causes the lock output to be omitted.
This stored procedure is useful by running it from any query tool. However, Microsoft suggests that you follow these steps to perform blocking analysis:
  1. Create the stored procedure sp_blocker_pss08, which is included at the end of this article, from any query tool while you are connected with a login that has sysadmin privileges on the SQL Server server or the instance of SQL Server you plan to monitor.
  2. Create a script file with the following query to run the stored procedure in a loop. Note that the delay should be between 5 and 60
    seconds:

    WHILE 1=1
    BEGIN
    EXEC tempdb.dbo.sp_blocker_pss08
    -- Or for fast mode
    -- EXEC tempdb.dbo.sp_blocker_pss08 @fast=1
    -- Or for latch mode
    -- EXEC tempdb.dbo.sp_blocker_pss08 @latch=1
    WAITFOR DELAY '00:00:15'
    END
    GO
  3. This output is very useful when combined with a Microsoft Windows NT Performance Monitor log and a SQL Profiler log, so creating both at the same time is suggested. For information concerning which Profiler and Performance Monitor events to capture, and for information about how to interpret the results, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    224453  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224453/ )  Understanding and resolving SQL Server 7.0 or 2000 blocking problems
  4. Run the script file created in step 2 from either Isql.exe, the Osql.exe query tool, or the Sqlcmd utility in a Windows command prompt on the computer that is running SQL Server for which you intend to monitor to prevent networking problems from disconnecting the query tool. Following is an example command line that you can use to start Osql.exe, which assumes that the client is run from the computer that is running SQL Server, and that the script file name is Checkblk.sql. Make sure to correct the -S parameter, and replace "server" with the name of your SQL Server server (or "servername\instance" if you are monitoring a named instance) . Also correct the -i parameter, and replace "checkblk.sql" with the path and name to the script file created in step 2.
    osql -E -Sserver -icheckblk.sql -ocheckblk.out -w2000
    Note that you must use the other command line switches for the following reasons:

    • To prevent line wrapping in the output files which makes it easier to read.
    • To send the output to a file, specified with the -o parameter, instead of to the screen so that if the query tool has problems, you still have output until the query tool fails.
Following is the script to create the sp_blocker_pss08 stored procedure:

Note: This script is meant to have 3 creations of the same stored procedure and two of them will fail
with either 207 errors or a 2714 error.
