>>Script Language and Platform: SQL Server 2000 (only) – requires SP3 or higher.
SP_WHO_3 is a very powerful utility for all DBAs. It displays processes connected to the system and what they are doing. It can find blocking processes, can return the Input Buffer for everything in the recordset returned, and provides immense filtering and sorting capabilities.
It’s designed to be extremely efficient, yet it provides many more features than sp_who, sp_who2, sp_lock, sp_lockinfo, and dbcc input buffer combined.
