Hello There,

I know there are several queries to  find  the 50 most expensive queries, but I would like to know if there is a new feature in SQL 2008 R2 that give you the correct output, if there is none please provide me with a query that you think is the best option to use.

Thank you in advance

SELECT TOP 50
        qs.total_worker_time/qs.execution_count as [Avg CPU Time],
        SUBSTRING(qt.text,qs.statement_start_offset/2,
                  (case when qs.statement_end_offset = -1
                  then len(convert(nvarchar(max), qt.text)) * 2
                  else qs.statement_end_offset end -qs.statement_start_offset)/2)
            as query_text,
            qt.dbid, dbname=db_name(qt.dbid),
            qt.objectid
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats qs
cross apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text(qs.sql_handle) as qt
ORDER BY

Which queries are consuming the most CPU resources and what are the query plans...
SELECT TOP 50
        qs.total_worker_time/qs.execution_count as [Avg CPU Time],
        SUBSTRING(qt.text,qs.statement_start_offset/2, 
		(case when qs.statement_end_offset = -1 
		then len(convert(nvarchar(max), qt.text)) * 2 
		else qs.statement_end_offset end -qs.statement_start_offset)/2) 
		as query_text,
		qt.dbid, dbname=db_name(qt.dbid),
		qt.objectid,
		qp.query_plan
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats qs
	cross apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text(qs.sql_handle) as qt
	cross apply sys.dm_exec_query_plan(qs.plan_handle) as qp
ORDER BY 
        [Avg CPU Time] DESC
