Hi There

How would one track down the SPID's in the database that are busiest, that is consuming the most CPU and IO resources ?
sp_who is not helpfull, it will tell you these stats for a process since connecting, but in my circumstance the app servers have connections to the database permanantly. Therefore sp_who stats reflect CPU and IO usage since being connected.

I have a problem where the CPU and IO's on my database server will go through the roof occasionally , and i dont know how to track down the SPID or process(or processes) that are the one's responsible.

Please help.
