I'm trying to analyze 1000+ stored procedures and I need to find out the:

  • Elapsed Time in Sec (AVG based on # of iterations)
  • CPU (AVG based on # of iterations)
  • Logical Reads

At first I'm using SQL Query Stress, but it will take me so much time to test-run each stored procedure and analyzing test parameters.

So my question is, is there an easier way to get what I needed?


If these are in a live database, then you can use the DMV sys.dm_exec_procedure_stats to pull information for all the Stored Procedures that have been run and cached on the instance.

A basic query to pull all procedures ordered by the Average Duration may look something like this:


  deps.total_elapsed_time/CAST(deps.execution_count AS DECIMAL(10,2))/1000000 AS AvgDurationInS,
  deps.total_worker_time/CAST(deps.execution_count AS DECIMAL(10,2))/1000000 AS AvgCPUInS,
  deps.total_logical_reads/CAST(deps.execution_count AS DECIMAL(10,2)) AS AvgLogicalReads,
FROM sys.dm_exec_procedure_stats AS deps
INNER JOIN sys.objects AS o
  ON o.object_id = deps.object_id
WHERE deps.database_id = DB_ID()

However, this doesn't show you all the queries within the Stored Procedure and break down each one by the same metrics. You can do that using sys.dm_exec_query_stats

  • Does the sys.dm_exec_procedure_stats only store information of stored procedures that has ran and had been cached already? Because there are some stored procedures that aren't appearing when I run the query you gave. – kganciro Mar 14 '16 at 7:20
  • Yes, it only stores historic information about procedures that have run – Mark Sinkinson Mar 14 '16 at 7:22
