Adding a processor_description column to sys.dm_os_sys_info in SQL Server Denali

I opened a new Connect Item today, asking Microsoft to add a new column to the sys.dm_os_sys_info DMV in SQL Server Denali. This seems like a pretty easy change that would be extremely useful, especially for the many database professionals who are not able to logon to their database servers directly.

This will give us a very useful piece of information, directly from a T-SQL query, (which is one of the standard diagnostic DMV queries that I use all the time).

You can help convince Microsoft that this is a good idea, by clicking on the hyper-link above (if you have a Windows Live ID), and clicking on the green arrow to vote for the suggestion.  It will literally take a few seconds…
