Run a blackbox trace

By Neil Jacobson,

There is a script for setting up a blackbox trace on SQL 2000 described by Kalen Delaney in "Inside SQL Server 2000". Since I can never remember where to look it up I wrote this simple stored procedure to run the blackbox trace when I need it. This should be used with caution as it will slow performance. To check the status of the trace: SELECT * from ::fn_trace_getinfo() -- Usually trace id = 1 To stop the trace: EXEC sp_trace_setstatus , 0 -- Usually trace id = 1 To remove the trace: EXEC sp_trace_setstatus , 2
