SQL 2008 and SQLNexus

Sep 4, 2008 at 2:14 AM
Greetings,

I want to use SQLNexus in investigating perf related issues for SQL 2008 on X64.
After unzipping the 2.5.0.5 version, I downloaded and setup the RML related utilities (for ReadTrace.exe) from here:
   http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=B60CDFA3-732E-4347-9C06-2D1F1F84C342&displaylang=en – RML utilities for SQL Server (x64)

Then, after generating a trace (via SQL profiler), I tried to download it using this command:
       sqlNexus.exe /ic:\SQLTraces\myTrace.trc

It failed w/ error message claiming that only SQL 2000/2005 traces are supported (version 10 is not).

Are there any known workarrounds?

Any related pointers/references are appreciated.

Thank you,
    AdrianC.

current version of readtrace won't read 10 trace.  we will release a new version that will work on 2008 soon.

Is there any ETA/estimated date for the new version ?
Thank you,
