Top Stored Procedure/Batch Drilldown

SQL Workload Analysis has a new widget to display top stored procedures or batches.  Mousing over any of the entries will identify it as a batch or a procedure.

Selecting any one of them drills down to a filtered view of the top resource consumers for that particular set of SQL statements, by several dimensions at once.


In addition, the calling stored procedure is identified for any SQL statement selected for analysis in the Summary widget for that statement.
