Extended Events Updates in Azure SQL DB

Dimitri Furman fills us in on recent happenings:

To better support Extended Events in Azure SQL, in recent months we have made several improvements. Now, you can:

  • View event data in SSMS without downloading xel files from Azure Storage
  • Watch live data for an event session
  • Use the XEvent Profiler
  • Use the histogram target
  • Monitor Extended Events performance
  • Use granular Extended Events permissions

Much of this is already available in the box product. Dimitri also notes some performance improvements and other updates as well.
