|Applies to: SQL Server ( SQL Server 2012 through current version).|

Column name Data type Description
trace_event_id smallint The ID of the SQL Trace event class that is being mapped.
package_name nvarchar(60) The name of the Extended Events package where the mapped event resides.
xe_event_name nvarchar(60) The name of the Extended Events event that is mapped to the SQL Trace event class.

Remarks

You can use the following query to identify the Extended Events events that are equivalent to the SQL Trace event classes:

SELECT te.name, xe.package_name, xe.xe_event_name  
FROM sys.trace_events AS te  
LEFT JOIN sys.trace_xe_event_map AS xe  
   ON te.trace_event_id = xe.trace_event_id  
WHERE xe.trace_event_id IS NOT NULL  

Not all event classes have equivalent Extended Events events. You can use the following query to list the event classes that do not have an Extended Events equivalent:

SELECT te.trace_event_id, te.name  
FROM sys.trace_events AS te  
LEFT JOIN sys.trace_xe_event_map AS xe  
   ON te.trace_event_id = xe.trace_event_id  
WHERE xe.trace_event_id IS NULL  

In the previous query, most of the returned event classes are audit-related. We recommend that you use SQL Server Audit for auditing. SQL Server Audit uses Extended Events to help create an audit. For more information, see SQL Server Audit (Database Engine).
