What Does SQL Profiler Mean?
SQL profiler is a graphical user interface (GUI) software tool in Microsoft’s SQL Server relational database management system (RDBMS). It monitors, analyzes, troubleshoots and tunes SQL databases and their environment.
Database monitoring, which, arguably, is the most widely-used and important RDBMS function, is performed by generating customized monitoring instances of specific database portions, also known as trace logs.
This term is also known as SQL Server profiler.
