OLEDB Call Event Class


Applies To: SQL Server 2016

The OLEDB Call event class occurs when SQL Server calls an OLE DB provider for distributed queries and remote stored procedures.

Include the OLEDB Call event class in traces to monitor only those calls that do not request data or calls that are not made to the QueryInterface method. When the OLEDB Call event class is included in a trace the amount of overhead incurred depends on how frequently OLE DB calls occur against the database during the trace. If calls occur frequently, the trace may significantly impede performance.

DatabaseIDIntID of the database specified by the USE database statement or the default database if no USE database statement has been issued for a given instance. SQL Server Profiler displays the name of the database if the ServerName data column is captured in the trace and the server is available. Determine the value for a database by using the DB_ID function.3Yes
DatabaseNamenvarcharName of the database in which the user statement is running.35Yes
DurationBigintLength of time to complete the OLE DB Call event.13No
EndTimeDatetimeTime that the event ended.15Yes
ErrorintError number of a given event. Often this is the error number stored in the sys.messages catalog view.31Yes
EventClassIntType of event = 119.27No
EventSequenceIntSequence of OLE DB event class in batch.51No

GroupIDintID of the workload group where the SQL Trace event fires.66Yes
HostNamenvarcharName of the computer on which the client is running. This data column is populated if the client provides the host name. To determine the host name, use the HOST_NAME function.8Yes
