A Few Changes in SQL Server 2012 (DBCC LOGINFO and DBCC CHECKDB)

Last week I put my first SQL Server 2012 instance into production, and therefore, started applying some of my Production scripts and jobs to that server. Upon doing so, I quickly noticed that two of my jobs were getting errors, two jobs that had been solid for years on other servers, so I took a look.

DBCC LOGINFO

First, on DBCC LOGINFO, the SQL team added a single field: RecoveryUnitId. I have tried to discover what this field is for, but have had no luck as of yet. Regardless, it means that my Check VLF Density script will have to change. This is a script that I run across all of my instances occasionally, but specifically whenever we have a DR site outage, to make sure that my Transaction Logs are not getting too full (due to their SQL Mirror Failover Partners being inaccessible). I have included the script below, it is not fancy, but it gets the job done. Note: It has a threshold set to only display databases whose VLF “density” is above 60%, this is configurable at the top of the script.

-- Only shows databases with a VLF density greater than 60% (configurable via @minimumDensity)
 
DECLARE @minimumDensity INT
SET @minimumDensity = 60
 
DECLARE @databaseList TABLE
(
    [database]            VARCHAR(256),
    [executionOrder]    [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL

DECLARE @vlfDensity    TABLE

    [server]        VARCHAR(256),
    [database]        VARCHAR(256),
    [density]        DECIMAL(7,2),
    [unusedVLF]        INT,
    [usedVLF]        INT,
    [totalVLF]        INT
)
 
-- Starting in SQL Server 2012, an extra column was added to LogInfo, named RecoveryUnitId

DBCC CHECKDB

Secondly, on DBCC CHECKDB WITH TABLERESULTS, the SQL team added several columns and replaced a couple others. This required me to change a critical stored procedure that I use regularly to check those databases that, for a multitude of reasons, do not fit into my normal Backup –> Restore Elsewhere –> DBCC CHECKDB –> DELETE methodology (outlined here). This stored procedure is called by a SQL Agent Job and sends me e-mails with the results of its findings. I will also need to make this change to my other method, but I will be moving that process to a different server and will probably do that change at that time (since I cannot restore my 2012 databases to that 2008 R2 instance anyway).

Below, I have listed the stored procedure that I have on each database instance. Note: If you want to use this script, you would need to make sure you have DBMail Setup and Configured, and then supply the appropriate DBMail Profile and Recipient e-mail address(es) to the script via two variables declared at the top of the stored procedure. Furthermore, to narrow down the databases against which the procedure is ran, you can change the query that fills the @databasesToAnalyze table variable. Both of these sections are called out in comment lines at the beginning of the stored procedure.

Lastly, I would like to thank Robert Davis (Blog | Twitter) and Roji Thomas (Blog | Twitter) for helping me find a couple columns I left out, sometimes a second or third pair of eyes can really help. This is yet another reason why the SQL Twitter community (especially via the #sqlhelp hashtag) is so valuable.

I hope these scripts and information can be a help to someone.

  1. Hello,
    Thanks for sharing the wonderful handy script to check the consistency of the databases in an instance.

    I am trying to save this script and getting the following errors. Please help me in correcting the errors.

    Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Procedure usp_DBCCCheckDB_SpecialDatabases, Line 94
    Incorrect syntax near ‘;’.
    Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Procedure usp_DBCCCheckDB_SpecialDatabases, Line 126

    • Anandan, thank you for bringing this to my attention. Somehow, when I pasted the script into the blog, WordPress ignored my code block and replaced the less-than and greater-than signs with their HTML equivalents. I have fixed the problem and the scripts should work for you now. Again, thank you for pointing this out and I am sorry for any confusion.

      • Brad Hoff,
        Thanks for the attention now & Indeed this is a must have script for DBA.

        Now, I have successfully stored and executed the SP.

        Since I have stored the SP in a database namely DBA, I removed the schema name “administrator”.

        Now, the query successfully executed with the expected list.

        But Query completed with Errors. Here is the error message I got,

        DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your system administrator.
        Msg 2812, Level 16, State 62, Line 1
        Could not find stored procedure ‘master.usp_LastDBCCCheckDB_Set’.
        Mail queued.

        I guess something is missing here to be created.

        Kindly review and help, Thanks in advance.

        • Anandan, that was a part of the script that I use in my environment. I have commented it out for you. Thanks for letting me know and I hope the scripts help you out.

  2. Thanks for the CHECKINFO script, it has proved very useful in sorting out out logging performance issues.

  3. Useful information and nice scripts. Thanks for sharing them.
