SQL Server Query - Log Stats

I want to come up with some way that I can collect and save certain statistics at both the start and end of a query.
I know I can query master.dbo.sysprocesses and get cpu time and physical_ios but I'd like to be able to break io into physical and logical and reads vs. writes. I would log results of whatever method is used to get a snapshot of the required data at the start of the query and the end.

For example, the value of cpu at the end of the query minus the value of cpu at the start should be the total cpu time used for my query. The stats I can think of that I would like to collect are cpu time, reads, writes (physical and logical), and perhaps total wait time.

You can get I/O statistics from
SET STATISTICS IO ON

Be aware, though, that physical I/O could vary because it depends on SQL buffer contents.

You could also capture results from
sys.dm_db_index_operational_stats
before and after the statement(s), and delta them, to get more detailed I/O.  Of course if other statements are using the same tables their I/O would be included in those totals also.

This will be running on a development server and will be the only activity against the database, and likely on the server.

Then the stats in the view should accurately reflect your activity.
