I'm trying to retrieve cached execution plans for a specific database object, but this fails because of cached plans which belong to a mirrored database in MIRROR state.
The below query, without any additional WHERE clauses is failing with the following SQL error:
Msg 954, Level 14, State 1, Line 1 The database "DatabaseName" cannot be opened. It is acting as a mirror database.
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats AS deqs CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_query_plan(deqs.plan_handle) AS deqp
I suspect what happens is the sys.dm_exec_query_plan function is first trying to parse all the plan handles from the cache, but fails on cached objects for a mirrored database.
Does anyone know if there are any ways to get around this, T-SQL wise?
Off course I could execute DBCC FREEPROCCACHE to clear the cache, however I'm hoping for other solutions. I'm a bit amazed this function is not discarding any objects from mirrored databases while trying to parse the plans.
