    You can run a trace using Profiler to watch the goings on, but in reality if you want to log all queries then you want to perform the logging in the sproc that performs the select.

    profiler pfft. on a prod box directly is a major no-no. write a server side trace script. which you can produce from profiler. write your results to a file somewhere where you have lots of room. limit the scope of your trace to as few events and columns as possible.

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.

    I use this for server side tracing:
    Automating Server Side Tracing in SQL Server : Narayana Vyas Kondreddi's home page

    I would not want to have traces running permanently though if that is your intention.

    Even incase of server side trace make sure you use all the neccessary filters and don't capture the events you don't need to reduce the load on the server and make sure you use file rollover option.
