Very useful little query to monitor the health of service broker

Published On: 2008-11-06By:

While dealing with a SQL Server Service Broker issue I needed a quick easy way to see how backlogged the service broker was.  So I came up with this little query which is surprisingly effective.

select far_service, state_desc, count(*) messages
from sys.conversation_endpoints
group by state_desc, far_service
ORDER BY far_service, state_desc

Hopefuly you find this helpful.
