Nice question.

I answered wrong even after reading BOL. I definitely need to learn more about that dynamic views because they contain a lot of useful stuff.

Maybe the word "job" is a little bit confusing in the context of the QOTD because in SQL Server it means "specified series of operations performed sequentially by SQL Server Agent".

I agree, the right word is BATCH.

Once a job completes (100%), it no longer appears in the dmv right? Am I correct in understanding that the DMV only shows currently executing requests?

Thanks

I got it right but since when is a Dynamic Management View a table?

I agree with you Gary... it's a view (albeit into a system table).

And with Carlo also... it's a "batch", not a job.

Which table helps to find the completion status of the job(e.g, backup, restore etc..) in SQL Server 2005?


DiscussUnfortunately I believe that none of the answers are correct for this question. The answers refer to batches, and use DMV's. The answer to your question would be to read the message field in the sysjobhistory table in msdb in order to get the status of the job. Also, these batch statuses are not in the tables used by the DMV for long making it difficult to get the completion status, unless the absence of an entry equals the completion but that does not tell you if the completion is a success or failure. But you can get the percentage of completion.

Changed it to a DMV from a table. We generically seem to use "table" for system tables, views, and DMVs, which isn't correct.

The question has been edited to say "batch" as well.

This is a very good question, thank you. I answered it correctly, but only because I knew that neither option 1 nor 3 is correct. This only left option 2 as a single available choice. It is good to start the day by learning something new from the QotD.
