I'm trying to run sp_blitz on SQL Server 2014 and it seems to be taking a long time. What is the normal length?

We only have around 30 databases. One is 300GB, but it's going on for 15 min.

Can be anywhere from 5 seconds to 15 minutes depending on your server, workloads, databases, etc. If you have thousands of databases, for example, you can check out the documentation and use switches like @CheckUserDatabaseObjects = 0 to go faster by skipping stuff.

  • Think I just broke a record for the script, took 49 mins , 40 secs on one of my SQL Servers :)
