Get slowest query in SQL server database

Posted by Navi's on May 20, 2010

Using this query we can identify the slowest query which is executing in database.
To execute this you must have a sufficient privileges other wise you will get this error.

The user does not have permission to perform this action.

SELECT TOP 10 SUBSTRING(qtext.TEXT, (qstats.statement_start_offset/2)+1,
((CASE qstats.statement_end_offset
ELSE qstats.statement_end_offset
END - qstats.statement_start_offset)/2)+1),
qstats.total_logical_reads, qstats.last_logical_reads,
qstats.total_logical_writes, qstats.last_logical_writes,
qstats.total_elapsed_time/1000000 total_elapsed_time_in_S,
qstats.last_elapsed_time/1000000 last_elapsed_time_in_S,
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats qstats
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(qstats.sql_handle) qtext
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_query_plan(qstats.plan_handle) qplan
ORDER BY qstats.total_logical_reads DESC -- Order by Logical Reads

You can try this in order by also

ORDER BY qstats.total_logical_writes DESC -- Order by Logical Writes
ORDER BY qstats.total_worker_time DESC -- Order by CPU Time
