Find SQL queries that use too much CPU

November 11, 2009

SELECT total_worker_time/execution_count AS AvgCPU
, total_worker_time AS TotalCPU
, total_elapsed_time/execution_count AS AvgDuration
, total_elapsed_time AS TotalDuration
, (total_logical_reads+total_physical_reads)/execution_count AS AvgReads
, (total_logical_reads+total_physical_reads) AS TotalReads
, execution_count
, SUBSTRING(st.TEXT, (qs.statement_start_offset/2)+1
, ((CASE qs.statement_end_offset  WHEN -1 THEN datalength(st.TEXT)
ELSE qs.statement_end_offset
END - qs.statement_start_offset)/2) + 1) AS txt
, query_plan
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats AS qs
cross apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text(qs.sql_handle) AS st
cross apply sys.dm_exec_query_plan (qs.plan_handle) AS qp
ORDER BY 1 DESC

Take note of the AvgCPU value. Fix the query, clear the query cache with:

DBCC FREEPROCCACHE

run the query again a few times, and run the above query again. Compare the numbers.
