Routine SELECT Queries

The below query to get result for SQL server Installation information

    SERVERPROPERTY('productversion') AS 'Product Version',
    SERVERPROPERTY('productlevel') AS 'Product Level',
    SERVERPROPERTY('edition') AS 'Product Edition',
    SERVERPROPERTY('buildclrversion') AS 'CLR Version',
    SERVERPROPERTY('collation') AS 'Default Collation',
    SERVERPROPERTY('instancename') AS 'Instance',
    SERVERPROPERTY('servername') AS 'Server Name'

The below query is to get total size and actual space used for particular database (SQL server 2005/2008).

SELECT name                 AS [File Name],
       physical_name        AS [Physical Name],
       size / 128           AS [Total Size in MB],
       size / 128.0  CAST(
       FILEPROPERTY(name, 'SpaceUsed' ) AS INT) /
       128.0 AS [Available Space In MB]
FROM   sys.database_files;

Thanks 🙂
