Log Navigator Final Beta Released

The final beta of Log Navigator has been released. This sql server auditing tool reads the MS SQL Server transaction log to track all data changes with no performance overhead or use of triggers. You can read database auditing trails from activity that took place even before the tool was installed. Powerful filters allow you to sort audit data by date, user, table and more. New features include LIVE LOG support and XML export. (Not Reviewed)

Worst Practice - Bad Connection Strings and Bad Info in Sysprocesses

Andy returns to the Worst Practice series this week with a short article looking at how connection strings in applications affect what you see in sysprocesses.

Read the article and post a comment - explore other points of view! Readers posting a comment will be entered in a drawing for a copy of the SQL Server 2000 Resource Kit.
