what is SQL Profiler? what is the advantages of this? Is there anything substitute of this?


Read this description :[^]

SQL Profiler helps you see your performance problems and gives you advise on indexes which will boost performance.

SQL Profiler is tightly integrated into the SQL Server platform so substitutions will be lacking (and it is supplied with your SQL license anyway).
