Active Connections to SQL Server Database 2008, 2005 by Application or User

To Check Active Connections to SQL Server Database grouped by User

Below query is very helpful in finding the Total CPU usage, Waiting Time, Elapsed Time, Number of Reads, Number of Writes, connections grouped by Login name related which are active in SQL Server Database.

To check Active Connections to SQL Server Database grouped by Login name


SELECT SUM(s.cpu_time) AS CPU,
SUM(s.total_scheduled_time) AS WaitTime,
SUM(s.total_elapsed_time) AS ElapsedTime,
SUM(c.num_reads) AS Reads,
SUM(c.num_writes) AS Writes,
COUNT(1) AS Connections,
s.original_login_name AS login
FROM sys.dm_exec_connections AS c
LEFT OUTER JOIN sys.dm_exec_sessions AS s
ON s.session_id = c.session_id
GROUP BY s.original_login_name

Below query is very helpful in finding the Total CPU usage, Waiting Time, Elapsed Time, Number of Reads, Number of Writes, connections Grouped by application name related which are active in SQL Server Database.

Below query is very helpful in finding the Total CPU usage, Waiting Time, Elapsed Time, Number of Reads, Number of Writes, connections Grouped by application name with much more details like protocols, Client interface, Encrypted or not etc…related which are active in SQL Server Database.

The Query below gives summarized information of active connections with more information like
1. Protocols: TCP/IP, named pipes or shared memory
2. Client interface like ODBC, OleDB or Ado.Net
3. To TSql or Soap endpoints
3. Authentification with SQL Account, Kerberos or NTLM
