hello guys,

i had a collegue run the command DBCC SHRINKDATABASE(dbname,10) last week on my SQL server 2008 R2 on saturday and my collegue told me it ran successfully but forgot to let me know how long it took to run. Today i'm back at work and its is thursday and i want to find out how long it took to run. I ran the following Query to try to find out how long DBCC SHRINKDATABASE took to run but i'm not able to find DBCC SHRINKDATABASE query anywhere, i also looked at SQL logs/error logs and there is nothing there. IS there anyway to find out how long it took? any help will be appreciated.


SELECT DISTINCT TOP 100
t.TEXT QueryName,
s.execution_count AS ExecutionCount,
s.max_elapsed_time AS MaxElapsedTime,
ISNULL(s.total_elapsed_time / s.execution_count, 0) AS AvgElapsedTime,
s.creation_time AS LogCreatedOn,
ISNULL(s.execution_count / DATEDIFF(s, s.creation_time, GETDATE()), 0) AS FrequencyPerSec
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats s
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text( s.sql_handle ) t
ORDER BY
s.max_elapsed_time DESC
GO

Hmm.  I can't find one.
I can see the event in the default trace:
SELECT  t.TextData, t.clientprocessID, t.Duration , t.StartTime , t.EndTime
FROM    sys.fn_trace_gettable(CONVERT(VARCHAR(150), ( SELECT TOP 1 f.[value]
                                                      FROM    sys.fn_trace_getinfo(NULL) f
                                                      WHERE   f.property = 2
                                                    )), DEFAULT) T
 WHERE   t.eventclass = 116

Open in new window

Will return all the DBCC events in the current default trace, and you can adjust the file pulled to look at the others.  Unfortunately that really only gives the start time.  I suppose if your colleague ran another query from the same query window after the Shrinkfile finished... you'd be able to look at the starttime of their next command and extrapolate the amount of time it took.  *shrugs.sadly*
