I was just poking around in SQL Server 2008 and wanted to know if there were any new Dynamic Management Views. There are a total of 33 new Dynamic Management Views. The list of them is below, I think their names make clear what the dmv is supposed to do (or at least I think I know)
If you want to find out what the names of all the new DMVs are by running a query on your SQL Server 2008 box and you don't have a linked server to a SQL Server 2005 box then don't worry I have prepared the query below for you. SELECT * FROM sysobjects
WHERE name LIKE 'dm_%'
AND name NOT IN('dm_os_hosts',
Enjoy exploring these DMVs
I also did a reverse query and all the DMVs that were in SQL Server 2005 are also in SQL Server 2008, none were dropped
I wonder if they will add more DMVs once the product is feature complete?
I also wonder if the good doctor Louis will include these in his DMV book?

About Denis Gobo
I was born in Croatia in 1970, when I was one I moved to Amsterdam (and yes Ajax is THE team in Holland) and finally in 1993 I came to the US. I have lived in New York City for a bunch of years and currently live in Princeton, New Jersey with my wife and 3 kids. I work for Dow Jones as a Database architect in the indexes department, one drawback: since our data goes back all the way to May 1896 I cannot use smalldates ;-( I have been working with SQL server since version 6.5 and compared to all the other bloggers here I am a n00b. Some of you might know me from http://sqlservercode.blogspot.com/ or even from some of the newsgroups where I go by the name Denis the SQL Menace If you are a Tek-Tips user then you might know me by the name SQLDenis, I am one of the guys answering SQL Questions in the SQL Programming forum.
