SQLMI captured XE for deadlocks does not render load deadlockgraph in SSMS !

  • On our Azure Managed Instance we capture deadlock information using an extended events.

    No I extraced a single deadlock graph and stored it in a .XDL file, so it can be opened by SSMS and rendered into a graphic.

    The reason for this is that the XE stores such data starting with

    <event name="xml_deadlock_report" package="sqlserver" timestamp="2022-10-20T12:37:59.739Z">
    <data name="xml_report">
    <type name="xml" package="package0" />

    Once I remove these elements and keep only


    SSMS (as wel as SentryOne PlanExplorer) renders it all fine.

    Bug or Feature ?
