SQL Server 2005 Diagnostic Information Queries (June 2012)

Here is the latest version of my SQL Server 2005 Diagnostic Information Queries, with some minor tweaks and improvements, including query numbering and one new query at the end. To go with it is an updated, blank results spreadsheet, where the tabs in the spreadsheet are labeled and in the same order as the queries.

The idea is that you can run these queries one by one, click on the top left square of the results grid, and then right-click and select “Copy with Headers” to select and copy the results of the query and then paste them into the matching tab of the results spreadsheet. With the SQL Server 2005 version of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), you will want to enable the “Copy with Headers” option under Tools, Options,Query Results, SQL Server, Results to Grid in order to be able copy the results with headers

These queries are designed to work on SQL Server 2005, although many of them will also work on newer versions of SQL Server. If you have a newer version of SQL Server you are really better off getting the proper version of these queries. The latest SQL Server 2008 version is here, and the latest SQL Server 2012 version is here.

As always, let me know what you think of these queries.

    Hi Glenn, Many thanks for the scripts and the spreadsheet.
    Looks like the SQL Server 2005 Diagnostic Information Queries is pointing to an older copy (Dec 2011).
    Best regards
