Filtering Data

Slava Murygin shows various ways to filter data, in particular data from fn_dblog():

Would say we need to extract an information associated with an “UPDATE” for LSNs started at “0000004f:00000087:0001”. You can just specify Starting and Ending LSNs as “fn_dblog” parameters:

[…]

That portion of code would return you ONLY Log records between LSNs “0000004f:00000087:0001″ and “0000004f:00000088:0001″.

Slava’s post uses fn_dblog() as an example but the techniques are applicable across the board, and in practice sum up to “get the¬†fewest number of rows and fewest number of columns you need to solve the problem at hand.”
