SQL Server Current Activity SuperCheck

By Ben Bolte,

This gives a quick check of the current activity on a SQL Server. I developed this after getting continually frustrated with "Current Activity" in SQL/EM getting blocked by processes when I needed to see blocking issues on the server. It has been immensely valuable to me in quickly identifying production-stopping issues on the database. It works best using a grid view. It will display all connections that are active or have open transactions (although this is easily adjustable). The niftiest part, though, it that it shows the active command text (DBCC INPUTBUFFER) for each SPID.
