I know that SQL Profiler take a lot of resource....

If I were to run the SQL Profiler on a separate server would this make any difference ...

For example run profile on Development server which monitors the Production Server?

better to run the Porfiler from other system:
1) avoid running profiler for long time.(run only when required)
2) try to use server trace.(Sample File Attached)

Performance Impact is there always its an overhead for the SQL Server: because this need to track all the Transaction. Running a visual tool from the same server means its an over Head for the Server system. If you run from the other system then resource taken to execute the visual tool execution is moved to that system thats it.

sorry to ask another question:

To confirm running SQL profile on Dev server which monitor the Production Server should have little or no impact on the performance of the Production server?

As I am telling again there will be less Impact while running from DEV server than Production server if u are running the visual tool. Still when required only execute(avoid running) the Profiler from DEV server.
