Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.
Four and a half years have flown by since I released sp_whoisactive version 11.11.
It's been a pretty solid and stable release, but a few bug reports and requests have trickled in. I've been thinking about sp_whoisactive v.Next -- a version that will take advantage of some newer SQL Server DMVs and maybe programmability features, but in the meantime I decided to clear out the backlog on the current version.
And so, with that, I present sp_whoisactive version 11.16. Hosted on the brand new home for sp_whoisactive. (Yes, it's a bit minimalist for the moment.)
