DBCC INPUTBUFFER

SQL Server 2000

Displays the last statement sent from a client to Microsoft® SQL Server™.

Syntax

DBCC INPUTBUFFER (spid)

Arguments

spid

Is the system process ID (SPID) for the user connection as displayed in the output of the sp_who system stored procedure.

Result Sets

DBCC INPUTBUFFER returns a rowset with the following columns.

Column name Data type Description
EventType nvarchar(30) Event type, for example: RPC, Language, or No Event.
Parameters Int 0 = text
1- n = parameters
EventInfo nvarchar(255) For an EventType of RPC, EventInfo contains only the procedure name. For an EventType of Language or No Event, only the first 255 characters of the event are displayed.

For example, DBCC INPUTBUFFER returns the following result set when the last event in the buffer is DBCC INPUTBUFFER(11).

EventType      Parameters EventInfo             
-------------- ---------- --------------------- 
Language Event 0          DBCC INPUTBUFFER (11)

(1 row(s) affected)

DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your system administrator.

Note  There are very brief transitional periods between events when no event can be displayed on Windows NT®. On Windows 98, an event is displayed only when active.

Permissions

DBCC INPUTBUFFER permissions default to members of the sysadmin fixed server role only, who can see any SPID. Other users can see any SPID they own. Permissions are not transferable.

Examples

This example assumes a valid SPID of 10.

DBCC INPUTBUFFER (10)
