Topic: Historical DMV Information
DMV are great to find information about performance without running a trace. But there information is lost once the SQL Server service is restarted. After finding some useful scripts online (Thanks SQL Server community!!!) , I decided to schedule a job to run the night before to store Index Usage, Least Used Indexes, SP Usage, Missing Index and Expensive CPU Usage. We will review the scripts and historical data captured.
Talk to you soon
