SQL Server 2005/2008 Express Profiler
Microsoft SQL Server family includes free Express edition, that is fully functional, however has some disappointing limitations which prevent from using it in development process. One of them is absense of profiling tools, standard SQL profiler is not included. However, now you have an ability to use express edition for tuning your system.
SQL Server Express Edition Profiler provides the most of functionality standard profiler does, such as choosing events to profile, setting filters, etc. By now there are no analogue free tools.
This is open source project, it is absolutely free and can be used as is.
The express edition of Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008 is free. But it doesn’t provide professional tools for profiling sql queries. This project is a .NET WinForms Application and in future AJAX-enabled web site which provides functionality of Microsoft SQL Profiler.
