Trace Template Properties (General Tab)

Use the General tab of the Trace Template Properties dialog box to create new trace templates by using the following options. To access this dialog box, on the SQL Server Profiler File menu, point to Templates, and then click New Template.


  • Select server type
    Specify the type of server against which this template will be used.

  • New template name
    Provide a descriptive name for the template.

    Use a template from the list as a basis for this template. All selected events, data columns and filters initially match those in the existing template, and can then be modified as needed.

  • Use as a default template for selected server type
    Use this template by default, for traces created for this server type.
