If you need to get information out of your SQL server (2005 or 2008) quickly, execute the stored procedure and you will get a detailed report for the following areas
- Buffer statistics - Memory statistics - General statistics - Locks statistics/Totals for Locks statistics
- TempDB statistics - Totals of Database statistics - Plan Cache statistics - Transactions statistics
- SQL error statistics - SQL statistics (SQL compilations/recompilations) - Wait statistics - SQL Execution statistics
This script displays data from the dynamic management view called: sys.dm_os_performance and presents it in a report. I recommend that you look closer to this view for all your statistical needs.
If you find other information that you want to include, just modify this script to reflect the additional information.
Hope you find this script useful.
