My name is Muthukkumaran Kaliyamoorthy and I am living in India (Chennai). I’m currently working as a SQL server DBA in one of the top MNC. I’m passionate about SQL Server, and I’m specialized in Administration and Performance tuning.

How to get the SQL server critical errors via mail using native T-SQL Script

 

T-SQL Tuesday #015: Automation:

 

 

     

I am very much interested to participate in the T-SQL Tuesday event party. I have seen the T-SQL Tuesday logo and article in one of my favorite SQL server blog Gail Shaw.

I found the Adam Machanic ( Blog | Twitter ) via Google but, I did not find the required information so, I wrote an email to him and he has sent me the link to topic http://sqlasylum.wordpress.com/2011/02/01/invitation-to-t-sql-tuesday-15-automation-in-sql-server.

Thanks to Adam Machanicfor doing this wonderful job. This is my first T-SQL Tuesday post. I have referred some of T-SQL Tuesday blog post.

This month Pat Wright is hosting and has given us the topic of Automation.


This Month Topic is Automation:

It’s a really great topic for DBA’s because, most of the DBA work is to automate everything (I mean 95% of DBA works).

What most of us think about DBAs?

They don’t have any work they are always enjoying their life. I can say if you don’t have work you are a good DBA :-) because you automated/protected everything (No performance issues, No data loss, No application downtime …)

In this article I am going to write about  “How to get the SQL server critical error via mail using native T-SQL”.

While doing DBmail test using a Gmail account on my laptop, I got number of errors So, I thought to write an article how to setup the DBmail using Google mail server account. 

 

This is my first version. (I will post it an effective manner at my second version)

What I made in this procedure?

  • I have collected all the critical errors from system stored procedure “EXEC DBA_test. DBO. SP_READERRORLOG”
  • I have inserted the critical errors to “dba_all_errorlog_details” table.
  • Create second stored procedure  “usp_dba_critical_error_DBmail” to send an e-mail to DBA team.(Every two hours)

Note: You can insert the critical errors whatever, you thing as critical.
