Featured Presentations:

The SQL Server default trace

Ajmer Dhariwal, SQL Server Consultant

Introduced in SQL Server 2005, the SQL Server default trace is a background trace that runs continuously and records event information that can be useful in troubleshooting problems. Not only that, but it’s there out-of-the box so you don’t have to do put any effort into enabling or managing it. This session intends to show that, in the right hands, the default SQL Server trace can yield very useful information.
