Hi,

I have a very general question. Does anyone know why the activity monitor in SSMS 2008 and/or 2008R2 in a clustered environment loads so slow when you start it with the default settings. The default is that it refreshes every 10 seconds but the first time it seems to takes minutes.
Is there anything we can do about?

Did anyone find out the answer to this? It is really slow and not good when you need to find out information quickly.

Personnaly I hate AM in SQL2008. It is generally slow and painful to use. I rarely use it these days and do most thing via script. Querying DMVs can be more usefull.

Okay. Thanks for replying. Do you have any DMV scripts that you use that you wouldn't mind sharing with me? That would be most appreciated.

If you open it on your PC it is quite slow, yes. If you open it on the live server it is pretty quick.

It's very slow for me when I login remotely to the server and start activity monitor. It takes forever to come up and display the info.

Shouldn't really be using SSMS on the Live server. It takes memory away from the system. SSMS should always be used remotely from your PC in my books. Especially when trying to find performance issues.
