Hi, I want to know how to stop a profiler trace that is running through a SQL server job but not through SQL Profiler. I've scripted a profiler template and created/scheduled a job using this script. This script is configured to write the trace output to a file and to stop after 24 hours from the start time. Now, I want to take a look at this output file but I can't open the file as it is being used by the running profiler. So, I want to stop the profiler but I don't know what to stop beacuse the job that started the profiler is not running anymore and I don't see any process running on behalf of the profiler that I can terminate. The only option is left for me at this point is to wait for 24 hours when the profiler stops and releases the output file. Can anybody give me a clue how to identify the process that is running this profiler and stop it ?
