Understanding Event Loss with Extended Events

SQL Performance

My colleague, Erin Stellato, recently asked me a question about where and why event loss could happen with Extended Events. The question was the result of a comment someone had made on one of her blog posts that was claiming that showplan_xml events can not be collected by the XE Profiler or through a "live" stream of the events from the server. Event Size Matters. The size and number of memory buffers for an event session can be found in the sys.dm_xe_sessions

Protractor Tutorial: Handle Mouse Actions and Keyboard Events


The Selenium Protractor framework has in-built capabilities to manage various forms of keyboard and mouse events. This handling of keyboard and mouse events is achieved using the Advanced User Interfaces API. At times, while performing automated browser testing, you often have to deal with elements, which reveal only after you hover on the menu or after you click on them. In such cases, you can opt for using the action class for keyboard and mouse actions in Selenium Protractor.

In this 33rd article of SQL Server Always On Availability Group series, we will use extended events to monitor the availability group. DBA must investigate the problem root cause analysis in case any critical event or downtime occurs.

Routing Instana Events to Humio


Logging is a natural part of coding. Believe it or not, we’ve all programmed logging into our code. After all, who hasn’t written a “Hello World” program? It’s not just your code that writes out log messages, every other piece of software does, from the operating system all the way up the stack. Tools to ship, aggregate and index logs have been around for a long time; it’s a mature market. That does not mean that there is no room for a new startup to disrupt the market.

Fine-grained event filters within alerting profiles


With this Dynatrace release, we’ve further improved the capabilities of your alerting profiles to allow you to define more fine-grained filtering options based on the event types within correlated problems. By adding a more fine-grained filter for process crash event types, you can now focus on all problems that only contain a process crash. Custom event types include events that originate from plugins, APIs, or Log Analytics. Dynatrace news.

Extend visibility into workload and cluster health by leveraging native Kubernetes events


In many cases, events are generated as these workloads go through different phases of their life cycles. For instance, events appear when the scheduler performs actions to bring workloads back to a desired state. Kubernetes also generates events when the state of a node changes, such as an eviction threshold being met and the kubelet attempting to reclaim memory. For better or worse, every Kubernetes user learns about the CrashLoopBackOff and ImagePullBackOff events.

New event type helps avoid unnecessary alerts for planned host downscaling


To enable you to automatically detect the shutdown of spot instances and the scaling up or down of third-party autoscaling solutions, we’ve introduced a new event type. This event type lets you weave Dynatrace into your own autoscaling frameworks and inform Dynatrace about hosts that will soon be terminated. In Dynatrace version 1.188, we’ve introduced a new event type called MARKED_FOR_TERMINATION. You can either: Send the event to each of the hosts that are to be shut down.

Putting your events on a diet

Particular Software

You can attempt to avoid this bitter fate by using architectural patterns like event-driven architecture. When you build a system of discrete services that communicate via events, you limit the complexity of each service by reducing coupling. But if you're not careful, it's easy to fall into bad habits, loading up events with far too much data and reintroducing coupling of a different kind. What do I mean by event? Often, commands and events come in pairs.

SQL Mysteries: Causality tracking vs Event Sequence for XEvent Sessions

SQL Server According to Bob

You need to make sure to order the events by event_sequence when doing analytics on the XEvent data. Values are generated when the event sequence is submitted to the target. The event_sequence is unique to the session. The session by event_sequence. However, the child task ordering within a parent sequence requires event_sequence. The sequence value associated with causality tracking is incremented when the event is recorded. Event Sequence.

Bandwidth-friendly Query Profiling for Azure SQL Database

SQL Performance

SQL Server has always provided the ability to capture actual queries in an easily-consumable rowset format – first with legacy SQL Server Profiler, later via Extended Events, and now with a combination of those two concepts in Azure SQL Database. This capability is essential when performance tuning since query events include discrete CPU and IO metrics as well as runtime parameters, which are key for troubleshooting query performance problems such as parameter sniffing.

In the spirit of Grant Fritchey 's recent rants , and Erin Stellato 's efforts since I think before we met, I want to get on the bandwagon to trumpet and promote the idea of ditching trace in favor of Extended Events.

Removing the default trace – Part 2

SQL Performance

While looking at what information we actually needed to collect in its place (file size changes), and how this should be exposed to users, I considered the following points about the default trace: it only captures automatic events; it does not capture the "culprit" batch that caused the event, unless you're lucky enough that it was also captured for another reason (e.g. DDL); and, it captures events using local time (our servers are Eastern and obey DST). event_file.

We'd routinely generate alerts that weren't actionable, lacked context, and for most of our customers, were considered noise. From a monitoring perspective, it was bad.

In a contrast to database query engines where reliability is not critical because a read-only query can always be restarted, streaming systems should pay a lot of attention to reliable events processing.
