Hi,

At our company, we are using a single package on SQL server for Accounting and Warehousing.

We experience some performance problems and a quick look at indexing shows that there are a lot of useless columns in the indexes.

There are a lot of tables to evaluate, we would like to scan the statistics of all tables and place them in a datamart for thorough analysis.

How can we access statistics with queries, or, at least, save the DBCC SHOW_STATISTICS results into a database?

Regards,

Geert Boelens

Hi guys,

Just got this one solved too.

You'll need VB to place the results in the table.

A stored procedure may return multiple results. The .NextRecordset allows to jump to the next resultset.

Just as simple as that!!!

The code is something like:

 
dim lrstResult as ADODB.Recordset
dim lconServer as ADODB.Connection

set lconServer =new adodb.connection
set lrstResult =new ADODB.Recordset

lconServer.open "whatever"
lrstresult.open "DBCC SHOW_STATISTICS ('Table','Index')",lconserver.connection

'First recordset
debug.print lrstresult.fields...

'Second recordset
set lrstresult=lrstresult.nextrecordset
debug.print lrstresult.fields...

'Third recordset
set lrstresult=lrstresult.nextrecordset
debug.print lrstresult.fields...

lrstresult.close
lconserver.close

set lrstresult=nothing
set lconserver=nothing

Try this to keep it inside SQL. I use this as a schedule job on my servers to execute against all databases /tables on the server. I execute IndexDefrag when Index defragmentation is over 30.

Comment out the IndexDefrag Code. And also store the results into a permanent table instead of a temp table.
-----------------------------------------
SET NOCOUNT ON

SELECT LTRIM(RTRIM(name)) AS 'name', 'F' AS 'flag' INTO #dbs FROM
sysdatabases WHERE name NOT IN
('tempdb')ORDER BY dbid

DECLARE @lv_db_name VARCHAR(40)

WHILE (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM #dbs WHERE flag = 'F') > 0
BEGIN
SET ROWCOUNT 1
SELECT @lv_db_name = name FROM #dbs WHERE flag = 'F'
SET ROWCOUNT 0

Print 'Database = ' + @lv_db_name
PRINT ''

EXEC ('USE [' + @lv_db_name + ']

Hi,

 

one solution for your problem is to create the temporary table with the same fields which is displayed in output of DBCC SHOW_STATISTICS

 

then run the following script.

INSERT INTO #temptable
   EXEC ('DBCC SHOW_STATISTICS (''' + @tablename + ''',''' + @indexname + ''')

is it ok as according to u r requirement ?

He was after show_statistics, not contig. These list two very different results sets. Key difference here: Statistics returns multiple tables as part of it's results set. Contig returns only one.

Formatting the results of statistics into a table is achievable by dropping the output into a file. You then have the option to skim through the file, record by record to extract the data you need, but it's not an ideal solution by any means.

I may look for a quick alternative shortly

Yep.. had q quick look. I'd recommand dynamic sql - use a while loop to work through your objects to pull stats back from.

create table #nextobject (record varchar(200))

Within the loop:

exec master..xp_cmdshell 'osql -d yourdatabase -q "dbcc show_statistics(yourtable,''yourindex'')" -o c:\sqltempout.txt -E'

bulk insert #entirefile from 'c:\sqltempout.txt' with (rowterminator = '')



Now all you need to do is locate the relevant line which should be simple enough with a patindex etc.

Have fun.

Re: DBCC SHOW_STATISTICS ... multiple tables

In BOL, review the <option> argument.
