I was working in a few SQL On-demand or SQL Serverless cases and based on an ex-PFE colleague Fabricio Catae script I created this one to help me with some troubleshooting scenarios. Feel free to adapt the script yourself for your scenario.


 


Basically, I want to take a snapshot of my DMVs while I am troubleshooting a scenario on SQLOD. So I asked the customer to repro the scenario while running my script and once is done. I work on the data collected and issue timestamps.

SET NOCOUNT ON
SET LOCK_TIMEOUT 30000

DECLARE @startDate DATETIME



SET NOCOUNT ON
SET LOCK_TIMEOUT 30000



WHILE 1=1
BEGIN


SET @startDate = GETDATE()


   print 'Begin Requests filtered ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(24), GETDATE(), 121) + ' ' + convert(VARCHAR(12), datediff(ms,@startDate,getdate())) 

   select * from sys.dm_exec_requests where session_id >77

   print 'End Requests filtered ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(24), GETDATE(), 121) + ' ' + convert(VARCHAR(12), datediff(ms,@startDate,getdate())) 

   print '================================================= ' 

   print 'Begin Requests  ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(24), GETDATE(), 121) + ' ' + convert(VARCHAR(12), datediff(ms,@startDate,getdate()))

This is as you probably noticed  a script with an infinite loop : WHILE 1=1


 


Basically, you would need to connect to SQL On Demand: Server-ondemand.sql.azuresynapse.net

Once connected. Run the script using the result as text option on SSMS. The grid would be nearly  impossible to read properly:

Recreate the situation that you want to monitor. Once done, stop the script as it is an infinite loop and look for the information that you want to find over the script results.


 


That is it!
