sys.trace_event_bindings (Transact-SQL)


Applies To: SQL Server 2014, SQL Server 2016 Preview

The sys.trace_event_bindings catalog view contains a list of all possible usage combinations of events and columns. For each event listed in the trace_event_id column, all available columns are listed in the trace_column_id column. Not all available columns are populated each time a given event occurs. These values do not change for a given version of the SQL Server Database Engine.

For a complete list of supported trace events, see SQL Server Event Class Reference.


This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. Use Extended Event catalog views instead.

Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version).
