DBCC TRACEON - Trace Flags (Transact-SQL)

Applies to: SQL Server Azure SQL Managed Instance

Trace flags are used to set specific server characteristics or to alter a particular behavior. For example, Trace Flag 3226 is a commonly used startup trace flag that suppresses successful backup messages in the error log. Trace flags are frequently used to diagnose performance issues or to debug stored procedures or complex computer systems, but they might also be recommended by Microsoft Support to address behavior that is negatively affecting a specific workload.

All documented trace flags and those recommended by Microsoft Support are fully supported in a production environment when used as directed. Trace flags in this list can have additional considerations regarding their particular usage, so it's advisable to carefully review all the recommendations given here and/or by your support engineer. Also, as with any configuration change in SQL Server, it's always best to thoroughly test the flag in a non-production environment before deploying.

Note

Microsoft Entra ID was previously known as Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).

Remarks

In SQL Server, there are three scopes at which trace flags can work: query, session, and global. Query trace flags are active for the context of a specific query. Session trace flags are active for a connection and are visible only to that connection. Global trace flags are set at the server level and are visible to every connection on the server. Some flags can only be enabled as global, and some can be enabled at either global or session scope.

The following rules apply:

  • A global trace flag must be enabled globally. Otherwise, the trace flag has no effect. We recommend that you enable global trace flags at startup, by using the -T command line option on Windows, or using mssql-conf on Linux. This ensures the trace flag remains active after a server restart. Restart SQL Server for the trace flag to take effect.

  • If a trace flag has either global, session or query scope, it can be enabled with the appropriate scope. A trace flag that is enabled at the session level never affects another session, and the effect of the trace flag is lost when the SPID that opened the session signs out.

Trace flags are set ON or OFF by using either of the following methods:

  • Using the DBCC TRACEON and DBCC TRACEOFF commands.

    For example, to enable the 2528 trace flag globally, use DBCC TRACEON with the -1 argument: DBCC TRACEON (2528, -1). The effect of enabling a global trace flag with DBCC TRACEON is lost on server restart. To turn off a global trace flag, use DBCC TRACEOFF with the -1 argument.

  • Using the -T startup option to specify that the trace flag is set on during startup.

    The -T startup option enables a trace flag globally. You can't enable a session-level trace flag by using a startup option. This ensures the trace flag remains active after a server restart. For more information about startup options, see Database Engine Service startup options.

  • At the query level, by using the QUERYTRACEON query hint. The QUERYTRACEON option is only supported for Query Optimizer trace flags documented in the table appearing later in this article.

Use the DBCC TRACESTATUS command to determine which trace flags are currently active.

Examples

The following example sets Trace Flag 3205 on for all sessions at the server level by using DBCC TRACEON.

DBCC TRACEON (3205, -1);

You can enable all plan-affecting hotfixes controlled by trace flags 4199 and 4137 for a particular query.

SELECT x FROM correlated WHERE f1 = 0 AND f2 = 1 OPTION (QUERYTRACEON 4199, QUERYTRACEON 4137);

Trace flags

The following table lists and describes the trace flags that are available in SQL Server.

Azure SQL Managed Instance supports the following global Trace Flags: 460, 2301, 2389, 2390, 2453, 2467, 7471, 8207, 9389, 10316, and 11024. Session trace-flags aren't yet supported in SQL Managed Instance.

Some trace flags were introduced in specific SQL Server versions. For more information on the applicable version, see the Microsoft Support article associated with a specific trace flag.

Trace flag behavior might not be supported in future releases of SQL Server.

Тrace flags can be referenced directly in the table via a bookmark that you can add to the end of the URL, using this format #tfNNNN. For example, to jump directly to Trace Flag 1118 in the table, use dbcc-traceon-trace-flags-transact-sql#tf1118.

Trace flag Description
101 Increases the verboseness of the merge replication agent logging.

Important: Trace Flag 101 can only be enabled for the Replication Merge Agent using the -T option when executing replmerg.exe from the command prompt.

Warning: Trace Flag 101 isn't meant to be enabled continuously in a production environment, but only for time-limited troubleshooting purposes. For more information, see an archived version of KB2892633.

Scope: Replication Merge Agent only.
102 Increases the verboseness of the merge replication agent logging and directs it to the <Distribution server>..msmerge_history table.

Important: Trace Flag 102 can only be enabled for the Replication Merge Agent using the -T option when executing replmerg.exe from the command prompt.

Warning: Trace Flag 102 isn't meant to be enabled continuously in a production environment, but only for time-limited troubleshooting purposes. For more information, see an archived version of KB2892633.

Scope: Replication Merge Agent only.
139 Forces correct conversion semantics in the scope of DBCC check commands like DBCC CHECKDB, DBCC CHECKTABLE and DBCC CHECKCONSTRAINTS, when analyzing the improved precision and conversion logic introduced with compatibility level 130 for specific data types, on a database that has a lower compatibility level. For more information, see SQL Server and Azure SQL Database improvements in handling some data types and uncommon operations.

Applies to: SQL Server 2016 (13.x) RTM CU 3, SQL Server 2016 (13.x) Service Pack 1 and later versions.

Warning: Trace Flag 139 isn't meant to be enabled continuously in a production environment, and should be used for the sole purpose of performing database validation checks described in SQL Server and Azure SQL Database improvements in handling some data types and uncommon operations. It should be immediately disabled after validation checks are completed.

Scope: Global only.
174 Increases the SQL Server Database Engine plan cache bucket count from 40,009 to 160,001 on 64-bit systems. For more information, see KB3026083.

Note: Ensure that you thoroughly test this option, before rolling it into a production environment.

Scope: Global only.
176 Addresses errors when rebuilding partitions online for tables that contain a computed partitioning column. For more information, see KB3213683 and KB4541096.

Scope: Global or session.
205 Reports to the error log when a statistics-dependent stored procedure is being recompiled as a result of autoupdate statistics. For more information, see an archived version of KB195565.

Note: This trace flag requires Trace Flag 3605 to be enabled.

Scope: Global only.
260 Prints versioning information about extended stored procedure dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). For more information about GetXpVersion(), see Create Extended Stored Procedures.

Scope: Global or session.
272 Disables identity pre-allocation to avoid gaps in the values of an identity column in cases where the server restarts unexpectedly or fails over to a secondary server. Identity caching is used to improve INSERT performance on tables with identity columns.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2017 (14.x), to accomplish this at the database level, see the IDENTITY_CACHE option in ALTER DATABASE SCOPED CONFIGURATION (Transact-SQL).

Scope: Global only.
460 Replaces data truncation message ID 8152 with message ID 2628. For more information, see KB4468101.

Starting with SQL Server 2019 (15.x), to accomplish this at the database level, see the VERBOSE_TRUNCATION_WARNINGS option in ALTER DATABASE SCOPED CONFIGURATION (Transact-SQL).

Applies to: SQL Server 2016 (13.x) Service Pack 2 CU 6, SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU 12, and later versions.

Note: Starting with database compatibility level 150, message ID 2628 is the default and this trace flag has no effect. For database compatibility level 140 or lower, message ID 2628 remains an opt-in error message that requires Trace Flag 460 to be enabled, and this database scoped configuration has no effect.

Scope: Global or session.
610 Controls minimally logged inserts into indexed tables. This trace flag isn't required starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x), as minimal logging is turned on by default for indexed tables. In SQL Server 2016 (13.x), when the bulk load operation causes a new page to be allocated, all of the rows sequentially filling that new page are minimally logged if all the other prerequisites for minimal logging are met. Rows inserted into existing pages (no new page allocation) to maintain index order are still fully logged, as are rows that are moved as a result of page splits during the load.

It is also important to have ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS turned ON for indexes (which is ON by default) for minimal logging operation to work as page locks are acquired during allocation and thereby only page or extent allocations are logged. For more information, see Data Loading Performance Guide.

Scope: Global or session.
634 Disables the background columnstore compression task. SQL Server periodically runs the Tuple Mover background task that compresses columnstore index rowgroups with uncompressed data, one such rowgroup at a time.

Columnstore compression improves query performance but also consumes system resources. You can control the timing of columnstore compression manually, by disabling the background compression task with Trace Flag 634, and then explicitly invoking ALTER INDEX...REORGANIZE or ALTER INDEX...REBUILD at the time of your choice.

Scope: Global only.
652 Disables page prefetching scans. If you turn on Trace Flag 652, SQL Server no longer brings database pages into the buffer pool before these database pages are consumed by the scans. As a result, queries that benefit from the page prefetching feature exhibit lower performance.

Scope: Global or session.
661 Disables the ghost record removal process. Trace Flag 661 disables the ghost record removal process. A ghost record is the result of a delete operation. When you delete a record, the deleted record is kept as a ghost record. Later, the deleted record is purged by the ghost record removal process. When you disable this process, the deleted record isn't purged. Therefore, the space that the deleted record consumes isn't freed. This behavior affects space consumption and the performance of scan operations. For more information, review the Ghost cleanup process guide.

Scope: Global only.
692 Disables fast inserts while bulk loading data into heap or clustered index. Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x), fast inserts are enabled by default, using minimal logging when database is in simple or bulk logged recovery model to optimize insert performance for records inserted into new pages. With fast inserts, each bulk load batch acquires new extents bypassing the allocation lookup for existing extent with available free space to optimize insert performance.

With fast inserts, bulk loads with small batch sizes can lead to increased unused space consumed by objects hence it is recommended to use large batchsize for each batch to fill the extent completely. If increasing batchsize isn't feasible, this trace flag can help reduce unused space reserved at the expense of performance.

Applies to: SQL Server 2016 (13.x) and later versions.

Scope: Global or session.
715 Enables table lock for bulk load operations into a heap with no nonclustered indexes. When this trace flag is enabled, bulk load operations acquire bulk update (BU) locks when bulk copying data into a table. Bulk update (BU) locks allow multiple threads to bulk load data concurrently into the same table, while preventing other processes that aren't bulk loading data from accessing the table.

The behavior is similar to when the user explicitly specifies TABLOCK hint while performing bulk load, or when the sp_tableoption table lock on bulk load is enabled for a given table. However, when this trace flag is enabled, this behavior becomes default without any query or database changes.

Scope: Global or session.
809 Enables what is referred to as Direct Write behavior for the hybrid buffer pool. This mode requires that persisted log buffer is enabled in the same database as hybrid buffer pool. Direct Write allows the hybrid buffer pool to serve as a cache for both dirty and clean pages, reducing the workload demands on the DRAM buffer pools for OLAP and OLTP style workloads. This trace flag was introduced in SQL Server 2022 (16.x) and the behavior is enabled by default in SQL Server 2022 (16.x) CU 1. If you're using SQL Server 2022 (16.x) CU 1 and later versions, the trace flag is ignored.
818 Enables additional I/O diagnostics to check for Lost Write or Stale Read conditions during file I/O operations. Trace Flag 818 enables an in-memory ring buffer that is used for tracking the last 2,048 successful write operations that are performed by SQL Server, not including sort and workfile I/Os. When errors such as Error 605, 823, or 3448 occur, the incoming buffer's log sequence number (LSN) value is compared to the recent write list. If the LSN that is retrieved is older than the one specified during the write operation, a new error message is logged in the SQL Server error log. For more information, see SQL Server diagnostics detects unreported I/O problems.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2017 (14.x), this trace flag has no effect.

Scope: Global only.
830 Disables detection and reporting of I/O requests that take a very long time to complete. By default SQL Server uses a mechanism to detect read and write I/O requests that take a long time (typically longer than 15 seconds). This trace flag disables this detection. For more information, see MSSQLSERVER_833.

Note: It isn't recommended that you enable this trace flag because you could decrease your ability to detect I/O issues on the system.

Scope: Global only.
834 Uses large-page allocations for the buffer pool, columnstore, and in-memory tables. The large page size varies depending on the hardware platform, but the page size can be from 2 MB to 16 MB. Large pages are allocated at startup and are kept throughout the lifetime of the process. Trace Flag 834 improves performance by increasing the efficiency of the translation look-aside buffer (TLB) in the CPU. In other words, Trace Flag 834 increases the efficiency of managing physical to virtual memory address translation that is performed by memory management hardware. For information on SQL Server and Large Pages, review the following blog.

Note: Trace Flag 834 applies only to 64-bit versions of SQL Server. You must have the Lock pages in memory user right to turn on Trace Flag 834. You can turn on Trace Flag 834 only at startup. Trace Flag 834 can prevent the server from starting if memory is fragmented and if large pages can't be allocated. Therefore, Trace Flag 834 is best suited for servers that are dedicated to SQL Server.

Note: When enabled, the large-page memory model preallocates all SQLOS memory at instance startup and doesn't return that memory to the OS.

Note: If you are using the Columnstore Index feature of SQL Server 2012 (11.x) and later versions, we don't recommend turning on Trace Flag 834. For more information, see Interoperability issues between batch mode processing and large page memory model. If using SQL Server 2019 (15.x) and columnstore, see Trace Flag 876 instead.

Scope: Global only.
836 Use the max server memory option for the buffer pool. Trace Flag 836 causes SQL Server to size the buffer pool at startup based on the value of the max server memory option instead of based on the total physical memory. You can use Trace Flag 836 to reduce the number of buffer descriptors that are allocated at startup in 32-bit Address Windowing Extensions (AWE) mode.

Note: Trace Flag 836 applies only to 32-bit versions of SQL Server that have the AWE allocation enabled. You can turn on Trace Flag 836 only at startup.

Scope: Global only.
845 Enables locked pages on Standard SKUs of SQL Server, when the service account for SQL Server has the Lock Pages in Memory privilege enabled. For more information, see KB970070 and Server Memory Server Configuration Options.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2012 (11.x), this behavior is enabled by default for Standard SKUs, and Trace Flag 845 must not be used.

Scope: Global only.
876 Uses large-page allocations for columnstore.

Note: Unlike Trace Flag 834, using Trace Flag 876 doesn't preallocate SQLOS memory at instance startup, and unused memory can be released.

Applies to: SQL Server 2019 (15.x) and later versions.

Note: Ensure that you thoroughly test this option, before rolling it into a production environment.

Scope: Global only.
888 Resolves performance degradation on PMEM devices with Hybrid Buffer Pool enabled in SQL Server when PMEM devices run low on memory. For more information, see KB4548103.

Applies to: SQL Server 2019 (15.x) CU 4 and later versions.

Scope: Global only.
890 Suppress long buffer pool scan complete messages (error 898) in the error log. For more information on buffer pool scan and the message that is logged in the error log, see Operations that trigger a buffer pool scan may run slowly on large-memory computers.

Applies to: SQL Server 2017 (14.x) and later versions.

Scope: Global only.
898 Disables the Direct Write behavior of the hybrid buffer pool for troubleshooting or debugging purposes. For more information, see KB5022375.

Applies to: SQL Server 2022 (16.x) CU 1 and later versions.

Scope: Global only.
902 Bypasses execution of database upgrade script when installing a Cumulative Update or Service Pack. If you encounter an error during script upgrade mode, it is recommended to contact Microsoft SQL Customer Service and Support (CSS) for further guidance. For more information, see KB2163980.

Warning: This trace flag is meant for troubleshooting of failed updates during script upgrade mode, and it isn't supported to run it continuously in a production environment. Database upgrade scripts need to execute successfully for a complete install of Cumulative Updates and Service Packs. Not doing so can cause unexpected issues with your SQL Server instance.

Scope: Global only.
1117 When a file in the filegroup meets the autogrow threshold, all files in the filegroup grow. This trace flag affects all databases. It is recommended only if in every database it is safe to grow all files in a filegroup by the same amount.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x), this behavior is controlled by the AUTOGROW_SINGLE_FILE and AUTOGROW_ALL_FILES option of ALTER DATABASE, and Trace Flag 1117 has no effect. For more information, see ALTER DATABASE (Transact-SQL) File and Filegroup Options.

Scope: Global only.
1118 Forces page allocations on uniform extents instead of mixed extents, reducing contention on the SGAM page. When a new object is created, by default, the first eight pages are allocated from different extents (mixed extents). Afterwards, when more pages are needed, those are allocated from that same extent (uniform extent). The SGAM page is used to track these mixed extents, so can quickly become a bottleneck when numerous mixed page allocations are occurring. This trace flag allocates all eight pages from the same extent when creating new objects, minimizing the need to scan the SGAM page. For more information, see KB328551.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x) this behavior is controlled by the SET MIXED_PAGE_ALLOCATION option of ALTER DATABASE, and Trace Flag 1118 has no effect. For more information, see ALTER DATABASE SET Options (Transact-SQL).

Scope: Global only.
1204 Returns the resources and types of locks participating in a deadlock and also the current command affected. For more information about deadlocks, see the Deadlocks guide.

Note: Avoid using Trace Flag 1204 on workload-intensive systems causing deadlocks. For more information about other means of detecting deadlocks, see the Deadlocks guide.

Scope: Global only.
1211 Disables lock escalation based on memory pressure, or based on number of locks. The SQL Server Database Engine doesn't escalate row or page locks to table locks.

Using this trace flag can generate excessive number of locks and if the lock memory grows large enough, attempts to allocate additional locks for any query might fail. This can slow the performance of the Database Engine, or cause 1204 errors (unable to allocate lock resource) because of insufficient memory.

If both trace flags 1211 and 1224 are set, 1211 takes precedence over 1224. However, because Trace Flag 1211 prevents escalation in every case, even under memory pressure, we recommend that you use 1224 instead. This helps avoid "out-of-locks" errors when many locks are being used.

For more information on how to resolve blocking problems that are caused by lock escalation in SQL Server, see Resolve blocking problems caused by lock escalation in SQL Server.

Scope: Global or session.
1222 Returns the resources and types of locks that are participating in a deadlock and also the current command affected, in an XML format that doesn't comply with any XSD schema. For more information about deadlocks, see the Deadlocks guide.

Note: Avoid using Trace Flag 1222 on workload-intensive systems causing deadlocks. For more information about other means of detecting deadlocks, see the Deadlocks guide.

Scope: Global only.
1224 Disables lock escalation based on the number of locks. However, memory pressure can still activate lock escalation. The Database Engine escalates row or page locks to table (or partition) locks if the amount of memory used by lock objects exceeds one of the following conditions:

- 40% of the memory that is used by Database Engine. This is applicable only when the locks parameter of sp_configure is set to 0.
- 40% of the lock memory that is configured by using the locks parameter of sp_configure. For more information, see Server configuration options (SQL Server).

If both trace flags 1211 and 1224 are set, 1211 takes precedence over 1224. However, because Trace Flag 1211 prevents escalation in every case, even under memory pressure, we recommend that you use 1224. This helps avoid "out-of-locks" errors when many locks are being used.

Note: Lock escalation to the table-level or HoBT-level granularity can also be controlled by using the LOCK_ESCALATION option of the ALTER TABLE statement.

For more information on how to resolve blocking problems that are caused by lock escalation in SQL Server, see Resolve blocking problems caused by lock escalation in SQL Server.

Scope: Global or session.
1229 Disables all lock partitioning regardless of the number of CPUs. By default, SQL Server enables lock partitioning when a server has 16 or more CPUs, to improve the scalability characteristics of larger systems. For more information on lock partitioning, see the Transaction Locking and Row Versioning Guide.

Warning: Trace Flag 1229 can cause spinlock contention and poor performance.

Scope: Global only.
1236 Enables database lock partitioning. For more information, see KB2926217.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2012 (11.x) Service Pack 3 and SQL Server 2014 (12.x) Service Pack 1, this behavior is controlled by the Database Engine and Trace Flag 1236 has no effect.

Scope: Global only.
1237 Allows the ALTER PARTITION FUNCTION statement to honor the current user-defined session deadlock priority instead of being the likely deadlock victim by default. For more information, see KB4025261.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2017 (14.x) and database compatibility level 140 this is the default behavior, and Trace Flag 1237 has no effect.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
1260 Disable scheduler monitor dumps.

Scope: Global only.
1448 Enables the replication log reader to move forward even if the asynchronous secondaries haven't acknowledged the reception of a change. Even with this trace flag enabled the log reader always waits for the synchronous secondaries whose synchronization state is SYNCHRONIZED. The log reader doesn't go beyond the minimum acknowledged Log Sequence Number of the SYNCHRONIZED secondaries. This trace flag applies to the instance of SQL Server, not just an availability group, an availability database, or a log reader instance. Takes effect immediately without a restart. This trace flag can be activated ahead of time or when an asynchronous secondary replica fails.

Scope: Global only.
1462 Disables log stream compression for asynchronous availability groups. This feature is enabled by default on asynchronous availability groups in order to optimize network bandwidth. For more information, see Tune compression for availability group.

Scope: Global only.
1800 Enables SQL Server optimization when disks of different sector sizes are used for primary and secondary replica log files, in SQL Server Always On and Log Shipping environments. This trace flag is only required to be enabled on SQL Server instances with transaction log file residing on disk with sector size of 512 bytes. It is not required to be enabled on disk with 4-KB sector sizes. For more information, see KB3009974.

Applies to: SQL Server 2012 (11.x) Service Pack 1 CU 13, SQL Server 2012 (11.x) Service Pack 2 CU 3, SQL Server 2014 (12.x) RTM CU 5, and later versions.

Scope: Global only.
1802 Disables ACL change and impersonated access verification during database attach or detach operations. This can be useful when attaching a database and encountering access permission errors, such as error 5120.

Scope: Global only.
1819 Allows backup to URL to use a proxy server when accessing Azure block blobs. In addition to this trace flag, you must set the WinHTTP proxy configuration on the server with the netsh.exe utility on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and later versions.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2301 Enable advanced decision support optimizations that are specific to decision support queries. This option applies to decision support processing of large data sets.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2312 Sets the Query Optimizer cardinality estimation model to SQL Server 2014 (12.x) and later versions, irrespective of the compatibility level of the database.

Note: If the database compatibility level is lower than 120, enabling Trace Flag 2312 uses the cardinality estimation model of SQL Server 2014 (12.x) (120). For more information, see Query Hints (Transact-SQL).

Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x) Service Pack 1, to accomplish this at the query level, add the USE HINT 'FORCE_DEFAULT_CARDINALITY_ESTIMATION' query hint instead of using this trace flag.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2335 Causes SQL Server to assume a fixed amount of memory is available during query optimization, for a scenario where the max server memory server configuration is set too high, and causes SQL Server to generate an inefficient plan for a specific query. It doesn't limit the memory SQL Server grants to execute the query. The memory configured for SQL Server is still used by data cache, query execution, and other consumers.

Note: Ensure that you thoroughly test this option, before rolling it into a production environment.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2338 Causes SQL Server to use a narrow plan when executing an UPDATE statement to update indexes in a table. When you do an UPDATE against a clustered index column, SQL Server updates not only the clustered index itself, but also all the nonclustered indexes because the nonclustered indexes contain the cluster key. A common way that the update occurs is to update the clustered index, and then all nonclustered indexes at the same time. SQL Server would update one row, then move to next row until all is complete. This is called narrow plan update or also called Per-Row Update. In some cases, the Database Engine can choose to do a wide plan update. This trace flag forces a narrow plan update.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2340 Causes SQL Server not to use a sort operation (batch sort) for optimized Nested Loops joins when generating a plan. By default, SQL Server can use an optimized Nested Loops join instead of a full scan or a Nested Loops join with an explicit Sort, when the Query Optimizer concludes that a sort is most likely not required, but still a possibility if the cardinality or cost estimates are incorrect. For more information, see High CPU or memory grants may occur with queries that use optimized nested loop or batch sort.

Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x) Service Pack 1, to accomplish this at the query level, add the USE HINT 'DISABLE_OPTIMIZED_NESTED_LOOP' query hint instead of using this trace flag.

Note: Ensure that you thoroughly test this option, before rolling it into a production environment.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2371 Changes the fixed update statistics threshold to a linear update statistics threshold. For more information, see this AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS Option.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x) and under the database compatibility level 130 or above, this behavior is controlled by the Database Engine and Trace Flag 2371 has no effect.

Scope: Global only.
2389 Enable automatically generated quick statistics for ascending keys (histogram amendment). If Trace Flag 2389 is set, and a leading statistics column is marked as ascending, then the histogram used to estimate cardinality will be adjusted at query compile time.

Note: Ensure that you thoroughly test this option, before rolling it into a production environment.

Note: This trace flag doesn't apply to CE version 120 or above. Use Trace Flag 4139 instead.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2390 Enable automatically generated quick statistics for ascending or unknown keys (histogram amendment). If Trace Flag 2390 is set, and a leading statistics column is marked as ascending or unknown, then the histogram used to estimate cardinality will be adjusted at query compile time. For more information, see KB2801413.

Note: Ensure that you thoroughly test this option, before rolling it into a production environment.

Note: This trace flag doesn't apply to CE version 120 or above. Use Trace Flag 4139 instead.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2422 Enables the SQL Server Database Engine to abort a request when the maximum time set by Resource Governor REQUEST_MAX_CPU_TIME_SEC configuration is exceeded. For more information, see KB4038419.

Applies to: SQL Server 2016 (13.x) Service Pack 2, SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU 3, and later versions.

Scope: Global only.
2430 Enables alternate lock class cleanup. For more information, see KB2754301.

Scope: Global only.
2446 Causes SQL Server to generate a Showplan XML fragment with the ParameterRuntimeValue when using the lightweight query execution statistics profiling infrastructure or executing the sys.dm_exec_query_statistics_xml DMV while troubleshooting long running queries.

Applies to: SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU 31, SQL Server 2019 (15.x) CU 19, and SQL Server 2022 (16.x) and later versions.

Warning: Trace Flag 2446 isn't meant to be enabled continuously in a production environment, but only for time-limited troubleshooting purposes. Using this trace flag introduces additional and possibly significant CPU and memory overhead as we create a Showplan XML fragment with runtime parameter information, whether the sys.dm_exec_query_statistics_xml DMV is called or not.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2022 (16.x), to accomplish this at the database level see the FORCE_SHOWPLAN_RUNTIME_PARAMETER_COLLECTION option in ALTER DATABASE SCOPED CONFIGURATION (Transact-SQL).

Scope: Global only.
2451 Enables the equivalent of the last actual execution plan in sys.dm_exec_query_plan_stats.

Applies to: SQL Server 2019 (15.x) and later versions.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2019 (15.x) to accomplish this at the database level, see the LAST_QUERY_PLAN_STATS option in ALTER DATABASE SCOPED CONFIGURATION (Transact-SQL).

Scope: Global only.
2453 Allows a table variable to trigger recompile when enough number of rows are changed. For more information, see KB2952444.

Note: Ensure that you thoroughly test this option, before rolling it into a production environment.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2467 Enables an alternate parallel worker thread allocation policy, based on which node has the least allocated threads. For more information, see Parallel Query Processing. Refer to Configure the max worker threads (server configuration option) for information on configuring the max worker threads server option.

Note: Query degree of parallelism (DOP) has to fit into a single node for this alternate policy to be used, or the default thread allocation policy is used instead. Using this trace flag, it isn't recommended to execute queries specifying a DOP over the number of schedulers in a single node, as this could interfere with queries specifying a DOP below or equal to the number of schedulers in a single node.

Note: Ensure that you thoroughly test this option, before rolling it into a production environment.

Scope: Global only.
2469 Enables alternate exchange for INSERT INTO ... SELECT into a partitioned columnstore index. For more information, see KB3204769.

Scope: Global or session or query (QUERYTRACEON).
2528 Disables parallel checking of objects by DBCC CHECKDB, DBCC CHECKFILEGROUP, and DBCC CHECKTABLE. By default, the degree of parallelism is automatically determined by the query processor. The maximum degree of parallelism is configured just like that of parallel queries. For more information, see Configure the max degree of parallelism (server configuration option).

Note: Parallel DBCC checks should typically be enabled (default). The query processor reevaluates and automatically adjusts parallelism for each table or batch of tables checked by DBCC CHECKDB.

The typical use scenario is when a system administrator knows that server load will increase before DBCC CHECKDB completes, and so chooses to manually decrease or disable parallelism, in order to increase concurrency with other user workload. However, disabling parallel checks in DBCC CHECKDB can cause it to take longer to complete.

Note: If DBCC CHECKDB is executed using the TABLOCK option and parallelism is disabled, tables might be locked for longer periods of time.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2014 (12.x) Service Pack 2, a MAXDOP option is available to override the max degree of parallelism configuration option of sp_configure for the DBCC statements.

Scope: Global or session.
2544 Causes a memory dump of SQL Server to become a full dump (default is mini dump). Full dumps are a complete copy of the active target process memory. That would include all thread state, all process allocated memory, and all loaded modules. Full dumps therefore have a size roughly the amount of memory used by SQL Server process, which in turn can be almost as large as total system RAM. On large servers dedicated to a single SQL Server instance, it could mean a file that is several hundreds of gigabytes or more.

Warning: Generating a full memory dump can suspend the SQL Server process for an extended period of time (several seconds to several minutes) and can generate a very large dump file. Use this with caution and only rarely if the situation requires it.

For more detailed information, see Use the Sqldumper.exe utility to generate a dump file in SQL Server.

Scope: Global only.
2549 Forces the DBCC CHECKDB command to assume each database file is on a unique disk drive but treating different physical files as one logical file. DBCC CHECKDB command builds an internal list of pages to read per unique disk drive across all database files. This logic determines unique disk drives based on the drive letter of the physical file name of each file.

Note: Don't use this trace flag unless you know that each file is based on a unique physical disk.

Note: Although this trace flag improves the performance of the DBCC CHECKDB commands that target usage of the PHYSICAL_ONLY option, some users might not see any improvement in performance. While this trace flag improves disk I/O resources usage, the underlying performance of disk resources could limit the overall performance of the DBCC CHECKDB command. For more information, see KB2634571.

Scope: Global only.
2551 Causes a memory dump of SQL Server to become a filtered dump (default is mini dump). This captures a percentage of full memory, where large areas of memory structures pertaining to SQL Server are purposefully filtered out and not serialized to disk as they bring no troubleshooting added value (typically, data/index pages, some internal caches like In-Memory OLTP data pages and Log Pool memory). This results in a file, which is smaller than a full memory dump while retaining most of its usefulness as preferred option in most situations where mini dumps aren't sufficient. For more detailed information, see Use the Sqldumper.exe utility to generate a dump file in SQL Server.

Scope: Global only.
2562 Runs the DBCC CHECKDB command in a single "batch" regardless of the number of indexes in the database. By default, the DBCC CHECKDB command tries to minimize tempdb resources by limiting the number of indexes or "facts" that it generates by using a "batches" concept. But this trace flag forces all processing into one batch.

One effect of using this trace flag is that the space requirements for tempdb might increase. tempdb could grow to as much as 5% or more of the user database that is being processed by the DBCC CHECKDB command.

Note: Although this trace flag improves the performance of the DBCC CHECKDB commands that target usage of the PHYSICAL_ONLY option, some users might not see any improvement in performance. While this trace flag improves disk I/O resources usage, the underlying performance of disk resources might limit the overall performance of the DBCC CHECKDB command. For more information, see KB2634571.

Scope: Global or session.
2566 Runs the DBCC CHECKDB command without data purity check unless the DATA_PURITY option is specified.

Note: Column-value integrity checks are enabled by default and don't require the DATA_PURITY option. For databases upgraded from earlier versions of SQL Server, column-value checks aren't enabled by default until DBCC CHECKDB WITH DATA_PURITY has been run error free on the database at least once. After this, DBCC CHECKDB checks column-value integrity by default. For more information, see an archived version of KB945770.

3042 Bypasses the default backup compression preallocation algorithm to allow the backup file to grow only as needed to reach its final size. This trace flag is useful if you need to save on space by allocating only the actual size required for the compressed backup. Using this trace flag might cause a slight performance penalty (a possible increase in the duration of the backup operation). For more information about the preallocation algorithm, see Backup compression (SQL Server).

3205 By default, if a tape drive supports hardware compression, either the DUMP or BACKUP statement uses it. With this trace flag, you can disable hardware compression for tape drivers. This is useful when you want to exchange tapes with other sites or tape drives that don't support compression.

Scope: Global or session.
3226 By default, every successful backup operation adds an entry in the SQL Server error log and in the system event log. If you create very frequent log backups, these success messages accumulate quickly, resulting in huge error logs in which finding other messages becomes problematic.

With this trace flag, you can suppress these log entries. This is useful if you are running frequent log backups and if none of your scripts depend on those entries.

Scope: Global only.
3427 Enables a fix for an issue when many consecutive transactions insert data into temp tables in SQL Server 2016 (13.x) where this operation consumes more CPU than in SQL Server 2014 (12.x). For more information, see KB3216543.

4136 Disables parameter sniffing unless OPTION(RECOMPILE), WITH RECOMPILE, or OPTIMIZE FOR <value> is used. For more information, see KB980653.

Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x), to accomplish this at the database level, see the PARAMETER_SNIFFING option in ALTER DATABASE SCOPED CONFIGURATION (Transact-SQL).

To accomplish the same result at the query level, add the OPTIMIZE FOR UNKNOWN query hint. The OPTIMIZE FOR UNKNOWN hint doesn't disable the parameter sniffing mechanism, but effectively bypasses it to achieve the same intended result.
Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x) Service Pack 1, a second option to accomplish this at the query level is to add the USE HINT 'DISABLE_PARAMETER_SNIFFING' query hint instead of using this trace flag.

4199 Enables Query Optimizer (QO) fixes released in SQL Server Cumulative Updates and Service Packs.

QO changes that are made to previous releases of SQL Server are enabled by default under the latest database compatibility level in a given product release, without Trace Flag 4199 being enabled. For more information, see KB974006.

QO changes from all previous database compatibility levels:
- If Trace Flag 4199 is enabled, query optimizer changes from all previous database compatibility levels are also enabled.
- If Trace Flag 4199 is disabled or not set, query optimizer changes are enabled starting with compatibility level 130. For compatibility levels below 130, query optimizer changes are disabled.

QO changes for DE version post-RTM:
- If Trace Flag 4199 is enabled, query optimizer changes are enabled for the Database Engine version post-RTM.
- If Trace Flag 4199 is disabled or not set, query optimizer changes are disabled for the Database Engine version post-RTM.

Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x), to accomplish this at the database level, see the QUERY_OPTIMIZER_HOTFIXES option in ALTER DATABASE SCOPED CONFIGURATION (Transact-SQL).

Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x) Service Pack 1, to accomplish this at the query level, add the USE HINT 'ENABLE_QUERY_OPTIMIZER_HOTFIXES' query hint instead of using this trace flag.

Important: Query Optimizer fixes that address wrong results or access violation errors aren't enabled by Trace Flag 4199. Those fixes aren't considered optional and become enabled by default once the update package is installed.

6527 Disables generation of a memory dump on the first occurrence of an out-of-memory exception in CLR integration. By default, SQL Server generates a small memory dump on the first occurrence of an out-of-memory exception in the CLR. The behavior of the trace flag is as follows:

- If this is used as a startup trace flag, a memory dump is never generated. However, a memory dump might be generated if other trace flags are used.
- If this trace flag is enabled on a running server, a memory dump isn't automatically generated from that point on. However, if a memory dump has already been generated due to an out-of-memory exception in the CLR, this trace flag has no effect.

8089 In SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU 16, you can enable the bitmap filtering for reducing the size of filtered memory dumps. SQL Server allocates a bitmap that keeps track of memory pages to be excluded from a filtered dump. Sqldumper.exe reads the bitmap and filters out pages without the need to read any other memory manager metadata.

Applies to: SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU 16 through CU 19 only. Starting with SQL Server 2017 (14.x) CU 20 the bitmap filtering is enabled by default. Trace Flag 8089 no longer applies, and is ignored if turned on. The bitmap filtering can be disabled via Trace Flag 8095. For more information, see KB4488943.

8207 Enables singleton updates for Transactional Replication and CDC. Updates to subscribers can be replicated as a DELETE and INSERT pair. This might not meet business rules, such as firing an UPDATE trigger. With Trace Flag 8207, an update to a unique column that affects only one row (a singleton update) is replicated as an UPDATE and not as a DELETE or INSERT pair. If the update affects a column on which a unique constraint exists, or if the update affects multiple rows, the update is still replicated as a DELETE or INSERT pair. For more information, see an archived version of KB302341.

Warning: Incorrect use of this trace flag might cause additional physical reads when SQL Server executes plans that contain the Nested Loops operator.

Scope: Global and session.
8790 Causes SQL Server to use a wide query plan when executing an UPDATE statement to update indexes in a table. When you do an UPDATE against a clustered index column, SQL Server updates not only the clustered index itself, but also all the nonclustered indexes because the nonclustered indexes contain the cluster index key. To optimize performance and reduce random I/O SQL Server might choose to sort all nonclustered index data in memory, and then update all indexes by the order. This is called a wide plan(also called Per-Index Update) and can be forced using this trace flag

9440 Disables the fix for bug 2112485 and bug 2636294. The bug fix doesn't apply when using the legacy Cardinality Estimation (CE) model. When a database uses the default CE model, outer join cardinality estimates might increase higher than the cardinality of the tables involved in the join when the join predicates consist of primary keys from the tables (for example, primary key to foreign key joins). A cap is applied that will limit the amount of cardinality overestimation similar to the overestimation limit that exists in the legacy CE for this scenario.

Note: This trace flag only applies to databases with a compatibility level of 160 and lower.
