SUMMARY

This article describes the ActivityTrace job that puts blocking and performance data into a trace file for further analysis. Copy the ActivityTrace job script from this article into a Query Analyzer window and execute the script to create the job. As is, the job is enabled and scheduled to run every minute.


NOTE: This article discusses a DBCC command (DBCC PSS) that is unsupported, and may cause unexpected behavior. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from the incorrect use of this DBCC command. Use this DBCC command at your own risk. This DBCC command may not be available in future versions of SQL Server. For a list of the supported DBCC commands, see the "DBCC" topic in the Transact-SQL Reference section of SQL Server Books Online.

The first time the job is executed, it creates a file named C:\ActivityTrace.ini that controls the ActivityTrace job. This file can be edited using Notepad.

To start the trace, edit the ActivityTrace.ini file by changing either or both of the following variables as noted:
@blockingcheck = yes
@performancecheck = yes
After the change is made, the next execution of the job will start the trace.

To stop the trace, edit the ActivityTrace.ini file by changing both of the following variables as noted:
@blockingcheck = no
@performancecheck = no
The next time the job executes the trace will stop.

The results of the trace are written to the C:\ActivityTrace.trc file. When the trace starts the original C:\ActivityTrace.trc file is overwritten, so be sure to copy the C:\ActivityTrace.trc file to another location before you restart the trace again.

Use SQL Profiler to view the data in the trace file to find blocking or a performance barrier.

For additional information about analyzing the data gathered by the trace, click the article numbers below to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

For information about controlling a trace, see the following article:
283786  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283786/EN-US/ ) INF: How to Monitor SQL Server 2000 Traces
NOTE: Make sure that you stop the trace by changing the @blockingcheck and @performancecheck parameters to no in the ActivityTrace.ini file. If you stop the trace by means of the trace stored procedure described in the article just referenced (Q283786), the trace will stop, but the job will continue. The next time the job runs, it will read that at least one of the parameters in the ActivityTrace.ini file is still set to yes and restart the trace, overwriting the original ActivityTrace.trc file.

MORE INFORMATION

The ActivityTrace job is controlled through the C:\ActivityTrace.ini file, which contains the following variables:
  • @performancecheck
    If @performance is yes, user event 83 is used to write the sysperfinfo table to the trace file. If @performance is no, user event 83 is not generated.
  • @blockingcheck
    If @blockingcheck is yes, user event 82 is used to record either 'no block' or 'blocking'. If blocking exists, user event 82 is used to record the sysprocesses and syslockinfo tables to the trace file. The user event 82 is also used to put dbcc pss information into the trace file if blocking exists. If @blockingcheck is no, that step is skipped and user event 82 is not generated.
  • @tracefile
    Data is written to the trace file specified in this @tracefile variable. Change @tracefile to save the trace to a different drive and file name. Note that a .trc extension is automatically added by the trace.
  • @maxfilesize
    When the trace file reaches the number of megabytes specified in the @maxfilesize variable, the file is closed. Change @maxfilesize to increase or reduce the size in megabytes of the trace file.
  • @minMBfree
    When the megabytes of free space on the drive specified in @tracefile is less than the megabytes specified in @minMBfree, the trace is stopped.
  • @stoptime
    Change @stoptime to set a time for the trace to automatically stop.
  • @options
    When the @options argument is set to 2, the trace will create new trace files when the @maxfilesize variable is exceeded. When the trace file reaches the number of megabytes specified in the @maxfilesize variable, the file is closed and a new file is created. If the original trace file specified in the @tracefile variable is C:\ActivityTrace, the original file is C:\ActivityTrace.trc. The next trace file is C:\ActivityTrace_1.trc, the next trace file is C:\ActivityTrace_2.trc, and so on.
  • @events
    Change @events to control the events traced.
  • @columns
    Change @columns to control the columns traced.
  • @filter1
    The number of @filter variables can vary from no @filter variable to @filter99. The filter variables must start with @filter1 and continue in sequence to the last filter. The four arguments in the @filter variable are column_id, logical_operator, comparison_operator, and value. The arguments are used by the system stored procedure, sp_trace_setfilter, to create a filter.
  • @job_name
    Change the @job_name variable to alter the name of the trace job from ActivityTrace to some other job name. Note that if you change the ActivityTrace job name, you must also change the name in the ActivityTrace job properties.
  • @schedule00seconds
    When set to yes, the job ActivityTrace will be scheduled to run every minute on the minute as defined by the schedule named schedule00seconds.
  • @schedule15seconds
    When set to yes, the job ActivityTrace will be scheduled to run every minute at 15 seconds past the minute as defined by the schedule named schedule15seconds.
  • @schedule30seconds
    When set to yes, the job ActivityTrace will be scheduled to run every minute at 30 seconds past the minute as defined by the schedule named schedule30seconds.
  • @schedule45seconds
    When set to yes, the job ActivityTrace will be scheduled to run every minute at 45 seconds past the minute as defined by the schedule named schedule45seconds.
Note that if @schedule00seconds, @schedule15seconds, @schedule30seconds, and @schedule45seconds are all set to yes, the job runs every 15 seconds. If @schedule00seconds, @schedule15seconds, @schedule30seconds, and @schedule45seconds are all set to no, the job does not run at all. In this case, because the job is not running, it cannot detect a change to the ActivityTrace.ini file; hence, the job must be started manually to allow it to read the ActivityTrace.ini file for the schedule change.

For additional information about the @tracefile, @maxfilesize, @stoptime, and @options arguments, see the SQL Server 2000 Books Online article sp_trace_create.

For additional information about the @events and @columns arguments, see the SQL Server 2000 Books Online article sp_trace_setevent.

For more information about filters, see the SQL Server 2000 Books Online article sp_trace_setfilter.

For example, consider the following contents of a @traceini file called C:\ActivityTrace.ini:
@performancecheck  = no 
@blockingcheck     = no 
@tracefile         = C:\ActivityTrace 
@maxfilesize       = 50
@minMBfree         = 200 
@stoptime          = 2010-12-31 12:00:00.000 
@options           = 2 
@events            = 10,11,12,13,16,17,19,33,42,43,55,82,83 
@columns           = 1,2,3,6,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,25 
@filter1           = 10, 0, 7, N'SQL Profiler' 
@filter2           = 10, 0, 7, N'SQLAgent - Job Manager' 
@filter3           = 10, 0, 7, N'SQLAgent - Alert Engine' 
@filter4           = 10, 0, 7, N'SQLAgent - Generic Refresher' 
@filter5           = 3, 0, 1, 4 
@job_name          = ActivityTrace 
@schedule00seconds = yes 
@schedule15seconds = no 
@schedule30seconds = no 
@schedule45seconds = no
				
By setting the variables this way in the ActivityTrace.ini file, the job ActivityTrace (@jobname) will run every minute on the minute (@schedule00seconds = yes). This job is set up to create a trace file, C:\ActivityTrace.trc (@tracefile), to contain blocking and performance trace activity; however, the trace will not be started (@performancecheck = no, @blockingcheck = no).

If the trace is started, when the tracefile reaches 50 MB (@maxfilesize), C:\ActivityTrace.trc will be closed and a new file, C:\ActivityTrace_1.trc will be created (@options). The following events will be traced (@events):
  • RPC:Completed
  • RPC:Starting
  • SQL:BatchCompleted
  • SQL:BatchStarting
  • Attention
  • ExistingConnection
  • DTCTransaction
  • Exception
  • SP:Starting
  • SP:Completed
  • Hash Warning
  • User-defined event 82
  • User-defined event 83
The following columns will be traced (@columns):
  • TextData
  • BinaryData
  • DatabaseID
  • NTUserName
  • ClientProcessID
  • ApplicationName
  • SQLSecurityLoginName
  • SPID
  • Duration
  • StartTime
  • EndTime
  • Reads
  • Writes
  • CPU
  • IntegerData
The trace will filter events so that it only captures events where ApplicationName NOT LIKE 'SQL Profiler' (@filter1), ApplicationName NOT LIKE 'SQLAgent - Job Manager' (@filter2), ApplicationName NOT LIKE 'SQLAgent - Alert Engine' (@filter3), ApplicationName NOT LIKE 'SQLAgent - Generic Refresher' (@filter4), and DatabaseID NOT EQUAL 4 (@filter5).

The trace will stop at 12:00pm on Dec. 31, 2010 (@stoptime).
