46 New Dynamic Management Views In SQL Server 2008 CTP6

Remember the 33 new DMVs in SQL Server 2008 post? I was just poking around in SQL Server 2008  CTP6 and wanted to know if there were any new Dynamic Management Views since CTP5. There are 13 new DMVs in CTP6 and there are a total of 46 new Dynamic Management Views compared to SQL server 2005. 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.

Cool -- procedure stats and trigger stats!  Sounds like some potentially good stuff.

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.
