Hi,
I am looking for an equivalent query that will give me similar results to the MySQL "SHOW STATUS" query.
Thanks!

exec sp_monitor might be a start.

I think you will have to look up individual things more than in MySQL.  Looks like MySQL is a little more organized in this area.

Are you looking for something in particular?  Best thing might be to get into the on-line help and search for the particular property you are interested in.

I need to get more data about the server-status.
MySQL gives me plenty of it, and I am trying to get something similar.
For example, Iwould like to get the Bytes_sent, Bytes_received, # of questions, memory usage, threads etc.
thanks

I've found the 'EXEC sp_helpdb' which is closer to my intentions, but I need more...

exec sp_monitor has packets_received, packets_sent, packet_errors, total_read, total_write, total_errors, and connections.  These are not exactly, but are close to many of the things you seek.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Well, I tried it, but I only got 'last_run', 'current_run' and 'seconds' - One row only.
Are you sure it's sp_monitor?
I simply typed exec sp_monitor and this is what I got.

And another thing...  Only a System Administrator can execute the sp_monitor, and I can't limit my application to admin only.

By the way, I am using JDBC to query the database, and the sp_monitor returns a multiple ResultSets. That is the reason I could not see the rest of the results (only the first).

The sp_monitor returns four different results sets.  If you execute in query analyzer you will see this.  I would imagine accessing the results depends on the method you are using to communicate with SQL Server.  If you search for sp_monitor, or "multiple result sets", or something like you will get a few results including:

jdbc is not specifically addressed, but you might get something out of it...

Also, you might be able to wrap sp_monitor in another stored procedure and give that procedure permission to execute sp_monitor.

Or you can consider just consider granting sp_monitor execute permissions to your users.
