SQL Server query plans in cache

07 January,2011 by Jack Vamvas

 If you want to view the objects within the cache  use the query below. This  will give you an  insight into how SQL optimizer and SQL storage engine reached the plan.


SELECT [qpc].[refcounts]

, [qpc].[usecounts]

, [qpc].[objtype]

, [stx].[dbid]

, [stx].[objectid]

, [stx].[text]

, [qpl].[query_plan]

FROM sys.dm_exec_cached_plans qpc

CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text ( qpc.plan_handle ) stx

CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_query_plan ( qpc.plan_handle ) qpl ;

Key Column meanings:

[qpc].[refcounts] = Number of cached objects referencing the object

[qpc].[usecounts] = Times used since started

[qpl].[query_plan] = compile-time Showplan
