  • It is a good article. I always run profiler or sqldiag locally because of permance concern.

  • As well as the performance is that fact that when a 3rd party or the customer themselves is running the trace this can go wrong.

    Often we'll get a trace back without all the events we're interested in.

    For example it won't include the SQL run by triggers.

    Server-side tracing might be a way to ensure the correct events are run by providing the scripts ourselves.
