Get the tools the professionals use - ReadTrace is now available for SQL 2005

One gripe about SQL 2005 was that read80trace wasn't available for it.

That has now been rectified with the release of RML Utilities for SQL Server.

This is an application that has a set of utilities for reading, analysing and replaying trace files. This is essential when doing any sort of analysis of a SQL Server system.

I've had a quick look and it looks very sound, I look forward to spending some more time investingating it in depth and see how it compares to some of the other tools out in the market place.

Have you had a chance to play with the RML Utilities? We have an issue with the ReadTrace in that the produced RML files cannot be used/replayed with ostress (due to the fact it doesnt seem to cater for named parameters).Just wondered if you had any experience with this.
