Extended Events *is* the replacement for Profiler/Trace; it’s not going away. I really want people to be prepared for the time when Profiler and Trace are removed from the product. And I want to provide feedback to the SQL Server product team to address limitations that people find in Extended Events. If the feature is lacking something, we need to work together to create change.
Thanks in advance for your help, and if you haven’t tried XE, or are looking for a refresher, then please attend my webinar next Tuesday, April 5th at 12PM EDT: Kicking and Screaming: Replacing Profiler with Extended Events. I’d love to see you there and can help get you started with XE!
