OLEDB Call Event Class

The OLEDB Call event class occurs when SQL Server calls an OLE DB provider for distributed queries and remote stored procedures.

Include the OLEDB Call event class in traces to monitor only those calls that do not request data or calls that are not made to the QueryInterface method. When the OLEDB Call event class is included in a trace the amount of overhead incurred depends on how frequently OLE DB calls occur against the database during the trace. If calls occur frequently, the trace may significantly impede performance.

OLEDB Call Event Class Data Columns

Data column name Data type Description Column ID Filterable
ApplicationName nvarchar Name of the client application that created the connection to an instance of SQL Server. This column is populated with the values passed by the application rather than the displayed name of the program. 10 Yes
ClientProcessID Int ID assigned by the host computer to the process where the client application is running. This data column is populated if the client provides the client process ID. 9 Yes
DatabaseID Int ID of the database specified by the USE database statement or the default database if no USE database statement has been issued for a given instance. SQL Server Profiler displays the name of the database if the ServerName data column is captured in the trace and the server is available. Determine the value for a database by using the DB_ID function. 3 Yes
DatabaseName nvarchar Name of the database in which the user statement is running. 35 Yes
Duration Bigint Length of time to complete the OLE DB Call event. 13 No
EndTime Datetime Time that the event ended. 15 Yes
Error int Error number of a given event. Often this is the error number stored in the sys.messages catalog view. 31 Yes
EventClass Int Type of event = 119. 27 No
EventSequence Int Sequence of OLE DB event class in batch. 51 No
EventSubClass Int 0=Starting

21 No
GroupID int ID of the workload group where the SQL Trace event fires. 66 Yes
HostName nvarchar Name of the computer on which the client is running. This data column is populated if the client provides the host name. To determine the host name, use the HOST_NAME function. 8 Yes
