Have other people experience how slow the activity monitor is to populate. At times it is so slow I give up at use SP_who2 but would rather use the activity monitor. Have other got fustraded with the slowness? Just wondering if it is just me or that the way it is now.

Thanks

No everything else in SSMS works fine. But when I click on the activity monitor it just takes forever for the details to come back. It is slow at times with one instance with 1 or two user databses as it is wit a instance with 15 user databases. The data is just slow getting back to me.

Yes! It has been this way since we installed. It refreshes quickly enough; it's just the initial data load that's slow. We run a cluster and I was wondering whether that was a factor.

Hi


Afaik I know the MGMT studio is sluggish on x64 as it's 32 bit.
This might have the same issue for your machine.

Also if you are on the server it will use shared memory.

Try see if there is a difference from a remote machine which will most likely use tcip.

Cheers

Hi

Afaik I know the MGMT studio is sluggish on x64 as it's 32 bit.
This might have the same issue for your machine.

That's a good lead. I am curious about these details. Do you have an article that references these issues, or maybe how to mitigate them?

Also if you are on the server it will use shared memory.

I am able to force the use of TCP/IP on my local server by providing the IP address or the specific Port number when connecting.

IP_ADDRESS\INSTANCE_NAME = TCP
IP_ADDRESS,PORT_NUMBER = TCP

.\INSTANCE_NAME = Shared Memory
.,PORT_NUMBER = TCP

SERVER_NAME\INSTANCE_NAME = Shared Memory
SERVER_NAME,PORT_NUMBER = TCP

(local)\INSTANCE = Shared Memory
(local),PORT_NUMBER = TCP

Note: my client protocol priority was not changed from the default order -> Shared Memory first, TCP/IP second, Named Pipes third

You can check your transport with this query after connecting:

SELECT  net_transport,
endpoint_id,
connect_time,
client_net_address
FROM sys.dm_exec_connections
WHERE session_id = @@spid ;

I can't say I have noticed any sluggish behaviour; SSMS behaves just fine for the most part, it's just the initial load of data by the activity monitor that takes "forever" -- 3 min 45 sec just now.

Unfortunately, I haven't noticed any difference between my current 64-bit and previous 32-bit desktop. Nor does it seem to make any difference whether I am logged into the server or my desktop. Come to think of it, as I always remote desktop into the server, that last may not be true.

It loads quite slow for me as well, kind of frustrating I agree.

Yep the activity monitor load is slow as all get out if you server is the slightest busy. It does not matter if it is a cluster or stand alone, it is slow.

If you having a block or other issue going on and want to see an overall real fast, better use something like sp_who2 for faster response.
