Beyond XP_READERRORLOG (Parameters of XP_READERRORLOG)

Posted by Karthick P.K on February 13, 2011

Parameters which would be useful when you run xp_readerrorlog or sp_readerrorlog

XP_READERRORLOG

 

Syntax:

xp_readerrorlog -> Reads the current SQL Server errorlog

xp_readerrorlog 3 -> Reads SQL Server errorlog “errorlog.3”

xp_readerrorlog -1, 2 -> Reads the current SQL Agent errorlog

xp_readerrorlog 3, 2 -> Reads the SQL Agent errorlog No 3 archive

xp_readerrorlog -1, 2, “ab” -> Reads the current SQL Agent errorlog but returns only those lines that contain the string “ab”

xp_readerrorlog 1, 2, “ab”, “cd” -> Reads the SQLAgent errorlog No 1 archive but returns only those lines that contain the strings
“ab” AND “cd” lines that contain the strings “ab” AND “cd”

xp_readerrorlog [-1 – n], 3, database_id, fulltext_catalog_id -> Reads full
text crawl log

Note:The second INT param is LogType. 1 = SQLServer logs, 2 = SQLAgent logs, 3 =
full text logs(SQLServer log is the default)
Additionally, the last 3 parameters (parameters 5, 6, 7) are used for Date/Time
filtering and ordering

xp_readerrorlog -1, 1, NULL, NULL, ‘2004-09-01’, ‘2004-09-02’, [‘asc’ | ‘desc’]
-> Reads the current SQL Server error log entries starting from midnight of 2004-09-01 until midnight of 2004-09-02.
Time can be included too. The date-time can be in any format recognizable by SQL server.
The last parameter specifies the datetime order that the entries are returned in. ‘asc’ or no
parameter is used for the normal, ascending, order. ‘desc’ is used to return entries in reverse order,
newest entries first.

Note:Also, to increase the number of log files, add a new registry key “NumErrorLogs” (REG_DWORD) under below location.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSQL.X\MSSQLServer\
By default, this key is absent. Modify the value to the number of logs that you want to maintain.

How to find SQL Server and system CPU usage history :

Posted by Karthick P.K on November 30, 2010

SQL Server and system CPU usage history can be obtained from sys.dm_os_ring_buffers  using below query

Note: For troubleshooting  high CPU usage in SQL Server follow https://mssqlwiki.com/2012/10/04/troubleshooting-sql-server-high-cpu-usage/

SQL Server 2005

DECLARE @ts_now bigint

SELECT @ts_now = cpu_ticks / CONVERT (float, cpu_ticks_in_ms) FROM sys.dm_os_sys_info

SELECT top 20 record_id, EventTime, 

  CASE WHEN system_cpu_utilization_post_sp2 IS NOT NULL THEN system_cpu_utilization_post_sp2 ELSE system_cpu_utilization_pre_sp2 END AS system_cpu_utilization, 

  CASE WHEN sql_cpu_utilization_post_sp2 IS NOT NULL THEN sql_cpu_utilization_post_sp2 ELSE sql_cpu_utilization_pre_sp2 END AS sql_cpu_utilization

FROM 

(

  SELECT 

    record.value('(Record/@id)[1]', 'int') AS record_id,

    DATEADD (ms, -1 * (@ts_now - [timestamp]), GETDATE()) AS EventTime,

    100-record.value('(Record/SchedulerMonitorEvent/SystemHealth/SystemIdle)[1]', 'int') AS system_cpu_utilization_post_sp2,

    record.value('(Record/SchedluerMonitorEvent/SystemHealth/ProcessUtilization)[1]', 'int') AS sql_cpu_utilization_pre_sp2

  FROM (

    SELECT timestamp, CONVERT (xml, record) AS record 

    FROM sys.dm_os_ring_buffers 

    WHERE ring_buffer_type = 'RING_BUFFER_SCHEDULER_MONITOR'

      AND record LIKE '%<SystemHealth>%') AS t

) AS t

ORDER BY record_id desc

 

SQL Server 2008

DECLARE @ts_now bigint
