Script for TempDB Sessions, The Queries, and (Nearly) Everything: The View

At the beginning of last month I posted an old query that showed the usage of TempDB. Since then I’ve modified it and added the query plan and have created a view out of the query.

I find using this view has helped me since Read Committed Snapshot isolation (RCSI) was turned on for a few of our databases as TempDB usage increases when RCSI is enabled.

CREATE VIEW vw_all_temp_db_usage
AS
 SELECT
 u.session_id
 AS [spid],
 DB_NAME (s.database_id)
 AS [database],
 s.original_login_name
 AS [login],
 s.host_name
 AS [origin],
 u.internal_objects_alloc_page_count/128.0
 AS [allocated tempDb Session Object Space],
 u.user_objects_alloc_page_count/128.0
 AS [ allocated tempDb Task User Space],
 u.user_objects_dealloc_page_count/128.0
 AS [deallocated tempDb Task User Space],
 tsu.internal_objects_alloc_page_count/128.0
 AS [tempDb Task Object Space],
 tsu.user_objects_alloc_page_count/128.0
 AS [tempDb Task User Space],
 tsu.user_objects_dealloc_page_count/128.0
 AS [deallocated Task tempDb User Space],
 tsk.task_state
 AS [state],
 t.text,
 qp.query_plan
 FROM sys.dm_db_session_space_usage u
 INNER JOIN sys.dm_exec_sessions s
 ON u.session_id = s.session_id
 INNER JOIN sys.dm_db_task_space_usage tsu
 ON s.session_id = tsu.session_id
 INNER JOIN sys.dm_exec_connections c
 ON c.session_id = s.session_id
 INNER JOIN sys.dm_os_tasks tsk
 on tsk.session_id = s.session_id
 INNER JOIN sys.dm_exec_requests req
 on u.session_id = req.session_id
 CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(most_recent_sql_handle) t
 CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_query_plan(req.plan_handle) qp
GO

Once you have run the above SQL you can execute as follows:


select * from vw_all_temp_db_usage
