Updated First Responder Kit and Consultant Toolkit for June 2020


If you’re saving the contents of sp_BlitzFirst, sp_BlitzCache, and sp_BlitzWho to tables every 15 minutes, you should definitely install this month’s updates. There are several key improvements for you in here to help make it easier to troubleshoot plan cache rollover due to unparameterized queries, plus way easier to gather query plans that are having parameter sniffing problems.

If you’re not saving this stuff to table, it’s as easy as creating a diagnostic database, and then setting up an Agent job to run this every 15 minutes:

EXEC dbo.sp_BlitzFirst @OutputDatabaseName = ‘DBAtools’, @OutputSchemaName = ‘dbo’, @OutputTableName = ‘BlitzFirst’, @OutputTableNameFileStats = ‘BlitzFirst_FileStats’, @OutputTableNamePerfmonStats
