Extended event monitoring and 'Using 'dbghelp.dll' version '4.0.5''

    Question

  • I've been using extended events increasingly to monitor some of my servers, databases, and processes. I have a few different sessions set up, some of them that I have left running with a histogram view open that refreshes every 5 seconds. I have noticed that this morning in my error log corresponding with the refreshes of the extended event histogram view there is a message every 5 seconds:

    Date 2012-12-11 9:00:56 AM
    Log SQL Server (Current - 2012-12-12 3:15:00 AM)

    Source spid58

    Message
    Using 'dbghelp.dll' version '4.0.5'

    Going off of what is written in this blog post:

    http://beyondrelational.com/modules/24/syndicated/501/posts/12763/using-dbghelpdll-version-405.aspx

    It seems that message can likely be safely ignored. However, I'm still not fond of repetitive informational messages showing up in my error log. Any way to stop this?

  • Way over my head but possibly use gpmc.msc

    Article could server as a template for other error message suppression techniques.  You did not say what version... this blog assumes Windows 2008 or 2008 R2.  This particular article is for suppressing a different error message on Small Business Server.

  • We also have this issue on 3 of our SQL Server instances and I cannot find a solution to mute these messages.  The message is logged every 5 seconds 24 hours a day which makes it virtually impossible (or at least extremely time consuming) to locate any relevant error messages.

    We are using Windows Server 2012 Standard and running SQL Server 2012 (v11.3.0000).  What can I do to keep these messages out of the SQL Server log?

    for SQL 2012 a CU is released but 2008 SQL seems not.

    fyi, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2878139 indicate that "Cumulative Update 12 for SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2" fixes this.
