Returns the number of disk write errors encountered by SQL Server since SQL Server last started.
Not all write errors encountered by SQL Server are accounted for by this function. Occasional non-fatal write errors are handled by the server itself and are not considered errors. To display a report containing several SQL Server statistics, including total number of errors, run sp_monitor.
This example shows the number of errors encountered by SQL Server as of the current date and time.
SELECT @@TOTAL_ERRORS AS 'Errors', GETDATE() AS 'As of';
Here is the result set.
