    Unanswered: View database server connections

    Hello again

    In the management studio IDE, is there any method of viewing a real-time listing of all connections to the database sever?

    Doesnt have to be fully real-time, it can just be semi-real time (i.e. have a 'refresh' button).

    thanks

    sp_who is maybe what you are after.

    you are a man of many questions.

But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    Heh, yeah I'm just sorta getting started with SQL Server. It's quite a change from MySQL which is what I'm used to.

    Hmmmm.... so with that sp_who proc, do you know if there's a GUI representation of that? (Like maybe in an admin control page or something?) I'm thinking of just making a web or c# app to wrap around sp_who if all else fails.
