DBCC, T-SQL

Slava Murygin has a script to turn DBCC MEMORYSTATUS output into one result set:

When I wanted to research memory problem on a server and started to dig deeper into “DBCC MEMORYSTATUS” command.Very useful links to understand that command were from Microsoft:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/271624
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/907877

During the research I’ve faced two problems:
1. I had to wait several seconds to get the full result set.
2. I had to scroll down and shuffle 115 different data sets to find the counter I want.

To eliminate both these problem all these different counters have to be in the same table/data set.
That will make research easier and data can be stored or compared with the base line.

Read on for the T-SQL script.
