OSQL Process Watcher

,

These 2 files plus sleep.exe (Resource kit) gives an administrator a good view of important blocking statistics in almost a real time fashion. You can use this with profiler to obtain some unique information very fast on a lead blocker if your gathering the right counters in profiler and dumping them in a table and querying it correctly. Put all 3 files in the same directory. You will want to adjust the properties of the cmd window screen buffer size regarding height and width so you can scroll around.

The cmd file that calls the script chk_blockW_cpu.sql below (if you have multiple servers use a naming convention like ckblocked_servername.cmd)for this cmd file. 
@echo off 

:a echo %%%%%%%%****** Server Name ******%%%%%%%% 

OSQL -Uuser -Ppassword -Sserver -n  -iD:\MonitorScripts\chk_blockW_cpu.sql 

sleep 20 

goto :a 

pause
