SQL SERVER – Wait Stats and Queues Script Updated – Identify Resource Bottlenecks


Now a days lot of customers have moved to the latest version of SQL Server. I use this script primary to get started with my performance tuning engagements. As I use this script more and more on the latest version, I realized that I needed to exclude few more innocent or harmless wait types from this query. I keep on changing my original script to accommodate new wait types. In my recent performance tuning consulting engagement, I get the opportunity to work with 60 SQL Server 2016 all together. While fixing performance for all the 60 servers running SQL Server 2016, I realized that it is not possible to keep using my old script and I have written a new script while observing various outputs of those servers.

SELECT  wait_type AS Wait_Type,
wait_time_ms / 1000.0 AS Wait_Time_Seconds,
waiting_tasks_count AS Waiting_Tasks_Count,
-- CAST((wait_time_ms / 1000.0)/waiting_tasks_count AS decimal(10,4)) AS AVG_Waiting_Tasks_Count,
wait_time_ms * 100.0 / SUM(wait_time_ms) OVER() AS Percentage_WaitTime
--,waiting_tasks_count * 100.0 / SUM(waiting_tasks_count) OVER() AS Percentage_Count
FROM sys.dm_os_wait_stats

Once you run above script, you can find a list of the resource bottlenecks in your system. Here is the list of all the resources you may need to resolve any issue with SQL Wait Stats. Make sure that you bookmark this page as it contains links to valuable resources.
Alternatively, you can also send your SQL Wait Stats to me (via email) in excel file and I will take a look at that and will give you my quick feedback about your resource bottleneck.
Note: If you think I should add or remove any wait types to the list do let me know. The process to improve the script is a constant process.
