First Responder Kit Release: Fingers Crossed!

This is a small release just to make sure you don’t forget about us.

We know you’re busy.

You can download the updated here.

sp_Blitz Improvements
#1755 – @MisterZeus added a new check for alerts that don’t send information out. I mean, is that even an alert?
#1766 – @jadarnel27 added some code to help folks who have a standard (non-sa) db owner not get warned about their standard user being the db owner.
#1782 – @RichBenner added an additional check to prevent trace file missing/moved errors.

sp_BlitzCache Improvements
#1748 – @RichBenner fixed up a divide by zero issue – what a hero!

sp_BlitzIndex Improvements
#1751 – I’ve attempted to make mode 0 more useful, by including a few more high priority issues. There was just too much missing between Mode 0 and Mode 4 (which gives you everything back that we find).
#1767 – Sometimes checking for duplicates looked like we fired false positives in Mode 0 because we weren’t also filtering the initial results by size
#1778 – @arampendley added code to output additional columns from op stats when you write to a table
#1780 – Fixed an issue where the string we cast a number to wasn’t long enough, and added some formatting to make long strings easier to read.

For Support

When you have questions about how the tools work, talk with the community in the #FirstResponderKit Slack channel. If you need a free invite, hit Be patient – it’s staffed with volunteers who have day jobs, heh.

When you find a bug or want something changed, read the file.

When you have a question about what the scripts found, first make sure you read the “More Details” URL for any warning you find. We put a lot of work into documentation, and we wouldn’t want someone to yell at you to go read the fine manual. After that, when you’ve still got questions about how something works in SQL Server, post a question at and the community (that includes us!) will help. Include exact errors and any applicable screenshots, your SQL Server version number (including the build #), and the version of the tool you’re working with.
