Dear all,

Right now I ran the SQL monitor.exe from :

but when it can't connect to a SQL instance it will left some code in the tempDB of the SQL server it failed to connect:

EXEC shb_generate_waitstats    /************************************************************  ** category wait stats  ************************************************************/  USE tempdb

Open in new window

and when i kill it, it seems ok, and if I kill it again, it shows:

"SPID xx: transaction rollback in progress. Estimated rollback completion: 0%. Estimated time remaining: 0 seconds."

it just keep hanging around there and we have 4 x connections like this now..

how can I force to kill it without restarting the SQL service?
