Is it possible in SQL2k Standard to adjust the speed of a trace replay in Profiler. By default it appears as though it will just run as quickly as possible and I need it to run in the tme it actually ran when captured.

    According to microsoft:

    Replay Events In The Order They Were Traced Events are started in the order in which they originally started. This enables debugging but doesn't guarantee timing of event execution. Events may be executed sooner than their original start time or after their original start time, depending on current activity levels, the current speed of connections, and other factors.
    Replay Events Using Multiple Threads Events are replayed as quickly as they can be processed. No timing is maintained between events. When one event completes, the next event is started. This optimizes performance and disables debugging.

    The Display Replay Results check box controls whether the replay results are displayed in the Profiler window. To display results, select this option. Otherwise, clear this option.

    You can also select an output file to save the result of the replay for later viewing. The output file allows you to review the replay just as you would any other trace file.
