sys.dm_exec_trigger_stats (Transact-SQL)

APPLIES TO: yesSQL Server (starting with 2008) yesAzure SQL Database noAzure SQL Data Warehouse noParallel Data Warehouse

Returns aggregate performance statistics for cached triggers. The view contains one row per trigger, and the lifetime of the row is as long as the trigger remains cached. When a trigger is removed from the cache, the corresponding row is eliminated from this view. At that time, a Performance Statistics SQL trace event is raised similar to sys.dm_exec_query_stats.

Column name Data type Description
database_id int Database ID in which the trigger resides.
object_id int Object identification number of the trigger.
type char(2) Type of the object:

TA = Assembly (CLR) trigger

TR = SQL trigger
Type_desc nvarchar(60) Description of the object type:

CLR_TRIGGER

SQL_TRIGGER
sql_handle varbinary(64) This can be used to correlate with queries in sys.dm_exec_query_stats that were executed from within this trigger.
plan_handle varbinary(64) Identifier for the in-memory plan. This identifier is transient and remains constant only while the plan remains in the cache. This value may be used with the sys.dm_exec_cached_plans dynamic management view.
cached_time datetime Time at which the trigger was added to the cache.
last_execution_time datetime Last time at which the trigger was executed.
execution_count bigint The number of times that the trigger has been executed since it was last compiled.
total_worker_time bigint The total amount of CPU time, in microseconds, that was consumed by executions of this trigger since it was compiled.
last_worker_time bigint CPU time, in microseconds, that was consumed the last time the trigger was executed.
min_worker_time bigint The maximum CPU time, in microseconds, that this trigger has ever consumed during a single execution.
max_worker_time bigint The maximum CPU time, in microseconds, that this trigger has ever consumed during a single execution.
total_physical_reads bigint The total number of physical reads performed by executions of this trigger since it was compiled.
last_physical_reads bigint The number of physical reads performed the last time the trigger was executed.
min_physical_reads bigint The minimum number of physical reads that this trigger has ever performed during a single execution.
max_physical_reads bigint The maximum number of physical reads that this trigger has ever performed during a single execution.
total_logical_writes bigint The total number of logical writes performed by executions of this trigger since it was compiled.
last_logical_writes bigint The number of logical writes performed the last time the trigger was executed.
min_logical_writes bigint The minimum number of logical writes that this trigger has ever performed during a single execution.
max_logical_writes bigint The maximum number of logical writes that this trigger has ever performed during a single execution.
total_logical_reads bigint The total number of logical reads performed by executions of this trigger since it was compiled.
last_logical_reads bigint The number of logical reads performed the last time the trigger was executed.
min_logical_reads bigint The minimum number of logical reads that this trigger has ever performed during a single execution.
max_logical_reads bigint The maximum number of logical reads that this trigger has ever performed during a single execution.
total_elapsed_time bigint The total elapsed time, in microseconds, for completed executions of this trigger.
last_elapsed_time bigint Elapsed time, in microseconds, for the most recently completed execution of this trigger.
min_elapsed_time bigint The minimum elapsed time, in microseconds, for any completed execution of this trigger.
max_elapsed_time bigint The maximum elapsed time, in microseconds, for any completed execution of this trigger.
total_spills bigint The total number of pages spilled by execution of this trigger since it was compiled.

Applies to: Starting with SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU3
last_spills bigint The number of pages spilled the last time the trigger was executed.

Applies to: Starting with SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU3
min_spills bigint The minimum number of pages that this trigger has ever spilled during a single execution.

Applies to: Starting with SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU3
max_spills bigint The maximum number of pages that this trigger has ever spilled during a single execution.

Applies to: Starting with SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU3

Remarks

In SQL Database, dynamic management views cannot expose information that would impact database containment or expose information about other databases the user has access to. To avoid exposing this information, every row that contains data that doesn’t belong to the connected tenant is filtered out.

Statistics in the view are updated when a query is completed.

Permissions

On SQL Server, requires VIEW SERVER STATE permission.
On SQL Database, requires the VIEW DATABASE STATE permission in the database.

Examples

The following example returns information about the top five triggers identified by average elapsed time.

SELECT TOP 5 d.object_id, d.database_id, DB_NAME(database_id) AS 'database_name',   
    OBJECT_NAME(object_id, database_id) AS 'trigger_name', d.cached_time,  
    d.last_execution_time, d.total_elapsed_time,   
    d.total_elapsed_time/d.execution_count AS [avg_elapsed_time],   
    d.last_elapsed_time, d.execution_count  
FROM sys.dm_exec_trigger_stats AS d  
ORDER BY [total_worker_time] DESC;
