Query Execution History
logs every SQL statement that you run in
a file on your disk or in a table in a database you specify with a connection string.
This way, if you're working on some script you can get the full history of every
change you've made. SQL Statements are saved in a list that is written to a file
and/or a database with a timer which you can set to a desired interval. Older query
history logs can be auto deleted. Time after which the logs are deleted is user
settable. The size of the code to be saved can also be set up to the maximum of
5 MB of code.
Version 5.2 adds exclusion keyword to not save a query in SQL history
The keyword is a preset comment and has to be at the start of the executing selection.
Version 5.5 adds query duration
data. Duration is measured strictly from SSMS client side and does not touch the server.
Query duration is saved only for local file-based SQL History. Searching also supports filtering on the duration.
make your work with tabs even easier. Each tab is
saved periodically as defined by the interval for Window Content History. The two
features are connected. You can also Restore Last Session by pressing the button
on toolbar. This openes the last saved tabs already connected to the server they
were connected to before. Since version 220.127.116.11 the window's pinned status is also preserved.
Simple, easy and fast.
Window Content History saves the whole text in all opened SQL
windows every N minutes. The default being 1 minute. This feature fixes the shorcoming
of the Query Execution History which is saved only when the query is run. If you're
working on a large script and never execute it the existing Query Execution History
wouldn't save it. By contrast the Window Content History saves everything in a .sql
file so you can even open it in your SSMS. The Query Execution History and Window
Content History files are correlated by the same directory and file name so when
you search through the Query Execution History you get to see the whole saved Window
Content History for that query. It is turned ON by default.
Current window history
is a dockable window that shows queries
executed in a currently active window. It alse has a search box at the top that
filters results as you type. Each entry also shows the color of the server/database it was run on.
This is very helpful if you change your connection in the same query window.
