On SQL Server, requires
VIEW SERVER STATE permission.
On SQL Database Basic, S0, and S1 service objectives, and for databases in elastic pools, the server admin account or the Azure Active Directory admin account is required. On all other SQL Database service objectives, the
VIEW DATABASE STATE permission is required in the database.
The following example returns the name of the filter daemon host and the maximum number of threads in it. It also monitors how many batches are currently being processed in the filter daemon. This information can be used to diagnose performance.
