Here is the December 2012 version of my SQL Server 2005 Diagnostic Information Queries, with some minor tweaks and improvements. I dropped a couple of redundant queries, and added a 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 that matches your version of SQL Server.
All of the recent versions of my DMV diagnostic queries can be found here.
