Input Data Control: Log of actual workload generated

Originally posted here:


Hi all,


Many people don't have access to SQL profiling tools to see what is ACTUALLY being run on the server, in order to be able to index the tables to optimize - So - it would be very helpful to understand the full set of transactions that are executed against a SQL server.   Tableau does this by having a performance mode, where you can see what queries were run and the time that each query took.


This would allow us to pump these through the SQL Database Engine Tuning Advisor (which takes a batch of SQL workload, and optimizes the DB for this workload through strategies such as indecies; partitioning; statistics; etc.


It may take a while to make this available in the UI, is there any way in the shorter term to make this available in a log file somewhere that we can unpick?


Many thanks
