Kill all SPIDs with a certain user ID

By Ryan McCauley,

This script is used to disconnect all connections by a particular individual to a server. I use it when I have to disconnect somebody and they have too many processes to do it by hand. Normally, you can just connect the offending process, but if there are multiple processes that are causing a problem , you can use this script to just disconnect the user from the server.

If you run this procedure without any parameters, it will return a list of all active connections, along with the number of databases they're using and the number of connections they have. If you run it with a loginname as a parameter, it will kill all the instances of that login name.
