After finishing the salary survey I was kicking around ideas for the next one and thought about one of the sessions I presented at SQL Connections in Spring this year and Fall last year about undocumented tips and tricks (just the tip of the iceberg!). In that presentation I covered a bunch of trace flags that I thought would be useful to people (and I'll be blogging about some of them – just blogged about checkpoint information trace flags over on our SQL Mag blog) and I was wondering when people would use them.

So this survey is about your comfort level with using trace flags in production.


I've left the "Other" option open if you want to go into more detail.

I'll report on the results in a few weeks.

Thanks!
