  • WHOOP!

    All those classes on how to use Extended Events haven't been wasted.

    And before there's more whinging about XML in Extended Events, let me point out two things. Using the Live Data Explorer window means never looking at XML. Using DBATools to query the Extended Events data means never looking at XML.

    The XML argument is just tired & old. Plus, there are tons and tons of example queries that can be emulated if you do actually need to look at the XML. Focus on what tools can do for you instead of 12 year old reports of a tool's shortcomings.

  • Nice question, thanks Steve

    and nicely phrased response to any negatives who might winge about using Extended Events, Grant - i love it...

    Heh... I know what you mean.  I've been saying the same thing about SQL Profiler for years. 😀

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.

    Change is inevitable... Change for the better is not.
