Find Overlapping Jobs

,

Script lists all overlapping jobs that ran on selected server within last @Hoursback hours.
Basically, idea behind this is to find jobs that are running at the same time, because that might significantly slow down server, especially if you have jobs that are running during business hours. You can do the same by looking into Jobs History in Enterprise Manager, but this script seems like much easier solution to me.

CREATE PROCEDURE OverlappingJobs_sp @HoursBack int = NULL AS

Parameters 
@Hoursback – Number of hours you want to look back. Default is 24. 

NOTICE: Procedure is based on sysjobshistory table, which stores only 1000 records, at least on my servers. 
If you have very many jobs, and specify long period to look back, procedure might not return all overlapping jobs.
