Simple script to list out SPID, Program_name and login details

By S M,

To Execute the procedure, first find out any database against which you want to extract the SPIDs.

To find the dbid, use the below script:

select spid,dbid,status from sys.sysprocesses
where spid> 50
Let's say, you want to find out all the sessions running against the dbid = 60 and you want to see few other additional details, for e.g, SPID, app_program_name, loginame.
exec find_session @dbid = 60

You get a quick answer.

The best part of the script is, it's not using CURSOR and also very handy way to get only the required details as extracting each time the SPID and then feeding into the DBCC INPUTBUFFER(SPID) is a time consuming and boring approach.

Hope this helps everyone.
