1. To get "Aug", you should use:

select left(datename(mm,getdate()),3)

2. To get more milliseconds, instead of using Getdate(), you should use:

select sysdatetime()

It is this that you want?
SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR, GETDATE(), 109)

Open in new window

Select format(getdate(),'yyyy MMM dd HH mm ss FFFFFFF')

Open in new window

This will also give you up to 6 digits 3 for milliseconds and 3 for macroseconds

thanks - we are getting close.
 
    Select format(sysdatetime() ,'yyyy MMM dd HH mm ss FFFFFFF')
  Select format(GETDATE() ,'yyyy MMM dd HH mm ss FFFFFFF')
  gives
2014 Sep 16 09 46 43 7699724
2014 Sep 16 09 46 43 767 (4 precision less than the above)

what we need is ( without the 2 extra digits with sysdatetime)
2014 Sep 16 09 46 43 767__
