Find All Queries Run Against a Table

This script will show you all the queries that have run against a particular table since the last time SQL Server was rebooted. This query is good in helping to define indexes. This only works against SQL 2008.

[cc lang=”sql”]
SELECT DISTINCT TOP 1000
ProcedureName = OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME(qt.objectid) + ‘.’ + OBJECT_NAME(qt.objectid)
,SQLStatement = SUBSTRING(
qt.Text
,(qs.statement_start_offset/2)+1
,CASE qs.statement_end_offset
WHEN -1 THEN DATALENGTH(qt.text)
ELSE qs.statement_end_offset
END – (qs.statement_start_offset/2) + 1
)
,DiskReads = qs.total_physical_reads — The worst reads, disk reads
,MemoryReads = qs.total_logical_reads –Logical Reads are memory reads
,ExecutionCount = qs.execution_count
,CPUTime = qs.total_worker_time
,DiskWaitAndCPUTime = qs.total_elapsed_time
,MemoryWrites = qs.max_logical_writes
,DateCached = qs.creation_time
,DatabaseName = DB_Name(qt.dbid)
,LastExecutionTime = qs.last_execution_time
–,sre.*
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats AS qs
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(qs.sql_handle) AS qt
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_sql_referenced_entities(
OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME(qt.objectid) + ‘.’ + OBJECT_NAME(qt.objectid)
, ‘OBJECT’
) sre
WHERE qt.dbid = db_id() — Filter by current database
AND sre.referenced_schema_name + ‘.’ + sre.referenced_entity_name = ‘dbo.Table’

I have SQL sever 2014 proc based database with CAL’s , what is the query for finding the number of users accessing the DB

Hi Derek Dieter,

Thank you so much for sharing the query. I ran the query against the database but what I am getting is Procedure Name and there execution time and count. Is there any way to just get particular tables and what is running against them.

Thank you so much.

Can you post the query for sql server 2012 version. I am not getting any results in 2012 version.
