When you are running a performance baseline trace on a SQL server, how long do you typically run the trace? Or, do you run multiple traces at various times of the day?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When I need to run a performance baseline, I’ll run it for several hours over the busiest part of the day or month for the database.

When I worked for a finance company I would run the baseline over the month end reporting period from about the 27th to about the 3rd of the next month.

Where I’m at now a baseline would be during business hours both Eastern and Pacific time.
