Using xSQL Software's Profiler for SQL Server you can run traces on any SQL Server edition including MSDE and SQL Server Express starting from SQL Server 2000 and later. Here are some of the highlights:
- No need to install any agents on the target machines
- Trace multiple SQL Server instances at once
- Collect all traces into one central repository
- Advanced scheduling allows you to automate the process of collecting the critical data you need
- Precise event filtering (from simple criteria, such as equal or like operators, to complex regular expressions) to minimize the burden on the participating SQL Servers. Just the data you want, no more, no less.
- Built-in user defined events
The flexibility of the Profiler makes it an ideal tool for discovering SQL Server performance bottlenecks, conducting database auditing and compliance with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, GLBA, etc.
