The Forced Parameterization Extended Events That Aren’t

Busted Up

There are a couple Extended Events that I was really excited about adding to sp_HumanEvents, but try as I might they wouldn’t fire off anything. Ever.

Why was I excited? Because they would tell us why forced parameterization wasn’t used.

cool! great. wait, no.

The thing is, they only work if you know someone who isn’t Australian and they know how to change memory bits in WinDbg.

So like. Don’t bother with them for now.

A Word From Our Sponsors

First, a huge thank you to everyone who has bought my training so far. You all are incredible, and I owe all of you a drink.

Your support means a lot to me, and allows me to do nice stuff for other people, like give training away for free.

So far, I’ve donated $45k (!!!) worth of training to folks in need, no questions asked.

Next year, I’d like to keep doing the same thing. I’d also like to produce a whole lot more training to add value to the money you spend. In order to do that, I need to take time off from consulting, which isn’t easy to do. I’m not crying poor, but saying no to work for chunks of time isn’t easy for a one-person party.

I’m hoping that I can make enough in training bucks to make that possible.

Because this sale is extra sale-y, I’ve decided to name it after the blackest black known to man.

From today until December 31st, you can get all 25 hours of my recorded training content for just $100.00. If you click the link below to add everything to your cart, and use the discount code AllFor100 to apply a discount to your cart.




Some fine print: It only works if you add EVERYTHING. It’s a fixed amount discount code that you need to spend a certain amount to have kick in.

Thank for reading, and for your support.

Updates To sp_HumanEvents and sp_PressureDetector

Ain’t Nothing To Do

I’ve made some changes to my scripts! Exciting. Sorta. Kinda.


Got a name change. The code hasn’t changed at all. I started getting annoyed by the formatting and the underscore between pressure and detector.

Now it looks a whole lot more like other scripts in your arsenal.

Heh. Arse… nal.

Go get it here.


There have been a ton of improvements and fixes here. I realize it’s bad form to generalize like this, but I went into overdrive making sure things were nice and tidy for GroupBy. There have been improvements to XML querying and processing, how data gets pulled in and correlated, and finally how it gets displayed.

Go get it here.

get_letters and get_numbers

What sweet little helper functions! They’ve been updated to include versions that don’t require a numbers table.

Go get them here.
