  • Demo – extended event 2008 . Create session that record log wait.Start session Read result Stop session -- system catalog?
  • Catching errors with profiler: errors and warnings -> user error message -> column filters -> severity >= 16Can’t see the actual query that caused the errorXE allows us to add additional fields like sql_text, using an uncomfortable UI to create the capture and then script to parse the xml data
  • Module – exe or dllPackage - a container for XE objects
  • package0 - XE system objects (default)sqlserver - SQL Server related objectssqlos - SQL Server Operating System (SQLOS) related objects
  • monitoring points of interest the code
  • Actions are:programmatic response or series of responses to an eventActions are invoked synchronously on the thread that fired the eventActions can:Capture a stack dump and inspect data.Store state information in a local context using variable storage.Aggregate event data.Append data to event data.Examples of actions:Stack dumperExecution plan detection (SQL Server only)Transact-SQL stack collection (SQL Server only)Run time statistics calculationGather user input on exception
  • Create event session Event: error_reportedActions: client_app_name, database_name, session_id, sql_text(no target)
  • Events: lock_acquired, lock_releasedActions: client_app_name, database_name, session_id, sql_textTargets:Ring buffer – store data in the memory, cyclic. Watch live data view target (xml)Parse ring buffer XMLEvent file –data is saved in a file, can be archived and reviewed at different timesView targetEvent counter – Counts the number of eventsHistogram – aggregate data on specific event data field or actionFilter on lock_acquiredBase buckets on field mode (type of lock)Pair Matching – pair two related events and output only events that are not matchedBegin with: lock_acquired, end with: lock_releasedActions: session_id, resource_0, resource_1, resource_2Etw_classic_sync_targetLocks types: 0=NULL - Compatible with all other lock modes (LCK_M_NL)1=Schema Stability lock (LCK_M_SCH_S)2=Schema Modification Lock (LCK_M_SCH_M)3=Shared Lock (LCK_M_S)4=Update Lock (LCK_M_U)5=Exclusive Lock (LCK_M_X)6=Intent Shared Lock (LCK_M_IS)7=Intent Update Lock (LCK_M_IU)8=Intent Exclusive Lock (LCK_M_IX)9=Shared with intent to Update (LCK_M_SIU)10=Shared with Intent Exclusive (LCK_M_SIX)11=Update with Intent Exclusive (LCK_M_UIX)12=Bulk Update Lock (LCK_M_BU)13=Key range Shared/Shared (LCK_M_RS_S)14=Key range Shared/Update (LCK_M_RS_U)15=Key Range Insert NULL (LCK_M_RI_NL)16=Key Range Insert Shared (LCK_M_RI_S)17=Key Range Insert Update (LCK_M_RI_U)18=Key Range Insert Exclusive (LCK_M_RI_X)19=Key Range Exclusive Shared (LCK_M_RX_S)20=Key Range Exclusive Update (LCK_M_RX_U)21=Key Range Exclusive Exclusive (LCK_M_RX_X)
  • This enables the Extended Events user to selectively capture event data based on specific criteria.New operator – modulus, gt mod, lt mod….
  • Fix template…?
  • The mapping between package objects and sessions is many to many, which means that that an object can appear in several sessions, and a session can contain several objects.
  • The materialization of combination of metadata elements of XE architecture
  • Not sure is needed
  • UI for creation and management
  • Event: sql_statement_completedActions:plan_handle, query_hash, session_id, sql_textTargets: histogram on query_hash, event fileIn target display – choose columns: cpu_time, duration, logical_reads, query_hashGroup by query_hashFrom XE menu – aggregate by cpu_time and durationSave to table

  • 7. Extended Events• General event-handling system for windows servers• Used for problem diagnosis and info gathering and auditing• The Extended Events infrastructure supports the correlation of data from SQL Server and OS
  • 8. Extended Events• Support 7 different types of targets• Event and consumer agnostic – Any event can be processed by any consumer – New events can be added, immediately useable• Rich predicate system for filtering• Less overhead than server-side trace queues – 10,000 events processed will consume 1% of single 2GHz processor
  • 9. Agenda• About us• Introduction to Extended Events• Extended Events 2008• Extended Events Practical Terminology• Extended Events 2012 Enhancements• Summary
  • 10. Extended Events 2008 • Profiler- • • •
  • 11. Extended Events 2008 drawbacks• XE required extensive understanding of system catalog views and DMVs• Event Sessions could only be managed through the use of DDL commands• Reading target data requires the use of XQuery
  • 12. Extended Event Metadata• Catalog views for defined session info – server_event_sessions – server_event_session_target – server_event_session_fields – server_event_session_actions – server_event_session_events• DMVs for Event System Metadata – dm_xe_package – dm_xe_objects – dm_xe_object_columns – dm_xe_map_values• DMVs for currently active session info – dm_xe_sessions – dm_xe_session_targets – dm_xe_events – dm_xe_event_actions – dm_xe_object_columns
  • 13. DemoCapture errors with XE 2008• Find events and actions• Create a new event session• View the output

  • 15. Extended Events Objects Module PackagesEvents Targets Actions Types Predicates Maps
  • 16. Packages• Packages are metadata containers• Packages register at module load time• 9 available packages • package0 - XE system objects (default) • sqlserver - SQL Server related objects • sqlos - SQL Server Operating System (SQLOS) related objects• SQL audit uses private XE package
  • 17. Events• An event is a well known point in code• Unique schema for each event• Supports optional fields• Events fire synchronously• 264 events in 2008 R2• 618 events in 2012
  • 18. Actions• programmatic response or series of responses to an event• Can be added to any event• Adds data to the event payload• Actions are invoked synchronously• Trigger a memory dump
  • 19. DemoCapture errors using the XE UI• Create an event session• Configure action• Watch live data
  • 20. Targets• Target is an event consumer – Can be synchronous or asynchronous• Target types – event_file – event_counter – histogram – etw_classic_sync_target – pair_matching – ring_buffer – event_stream
  • 21. DemoMonitor locksPresent different types of targets• Ring buffer• Event file• Event counter• Histogram• Pair Matching• Etw_classic_sync_target
  • 22. Predicates• Predicates are a set of logical rules that are used to evaluate events when they are processed.• Boolean expressions using flexible operators • Event data • Action data • Global State
  • 23. DemoActivity TrackingPresent different types of Predicates• Event Predicates• Action Predicates• Global Predicates
  • 24. Event Session• The materialization of combination of metadata elements of XE architecture• Multiple targets per session• Event can be in many sessions – Actions/Predicates are per event• Event Session can specify what to do if target cant keep up• Event Session defines data retention• Event session can add or remove events on runtime
  • 25. Event Session

  • 30. DemoCapture queries and group by query hash• Grouping• Aggregation• Save XE to a table
  • 31. Extended Events Management API• Management API provides the ability to create and modify event sessions• Provides a complete object model for XE usage by managed applications• Provides a XEReader API for reading event files and event streams coming from a running event session on a server
  • 32. Agenda• About us• Introduction to Extended Events• Extended Events 2008• Extended Events Practical Terminology• Extended Events 2012 Enhancements• Summary
  • 33. Extended Event Use Cases• Proactive monitoring – Application errors – Errors log – Event grouping• Troubleshooting – Page Split – blocking• Audit – Monitor the access of privileged and non privileged users
  • 34. The Profiler’s grave
