Determining current diagnostic tracing settings (SQL)

You can retrieve the diagnostic tracing settings in effect by querying the sa_diagnostic_tracing_level table.


You must have the DIAGNOSTICS system role, and the MANAGE PROFILING system privilege.

  1. Connect to the database.

  2. Query the sa_diagnostic_tracing_level table for rows in which the enabled column contains a 1.


The database server returns the diagnostic tracing settings currently in use. A 1 in the enabled column indicates that the setting is in effect.


The following statement shows you how to query the sa_diagnostic_tracing_level diagnostic table to retrieve the current diagnostic tracing settings:

SELECT * FROM sa_diagnostic_tracing_level WHERE enabled = 1;

The following table is an example result set from the query:

id scope identifier trace_type trace_condition value enabled
1 database (NULL) volatile_statistics sample_every 1,000 1
2 database (NULL) nonvolatile_statistics sample_every 60.000 1
3 database (NULL) connection_statistics (NULL) 60,000 1
4 database (NULL) blocking (NULL) (NULL) 1
5 database (NULL) deadlock (NULL) (NULL) 1
6 database (NULL) plans_with_statistics sample_every 2,000 1
