Yesterday I asked how everyone uses Trace and Profiler…  Jonathan and I have talked about creating a library of Extended Events script to help people migrate off of Profiler and Trace and that post was designed to generate some ideas about what people might find useful.

I haven’t gotten a ton of comments, but I did get a few (thank you to those have responded!), and I decided to take one of them and create a Trace and create an Extended Events session and see how long it took for each.  Jonathan has mentioned before that he can create an XE session as fast as a Trace, and I’ve been thinking that I can as well so I thought I’d test it.  It’s a straight-forward Trace versus Extended Events test.  Want to see what’s faster?  Watch the video here.
