Finding Top Offenders with Extended Events

This week at MVP Summit I got to talk with a friend who loves profiler. We were talking about capturing workloads and doing analysis on them. T-SQL or other 3rd party tools like ClearTrace, ReadTrace would be used to aggregate the data to get insight into the top offenders. I mentioned that workload analysis could be done with extended events without writing a single line of T-SQL.  This was a lightbulb moment for him.  Quickly, I learned that he is not alone and that there are a lot of people in the community who didn’t know this either.

I am including a quick video below to show you why Extended Events is a great solution for finding top offenders in a workload.
