SQL Server: Script to find Estimated Finish Time of The Backup Database

In this post, I am providing a SQL Script to find Estimated Finish Time for the action of the SQL Server Backup Database.

When I am doing any action like backup and restore, every time I keen to know the estimated completion time.
This is also one of the important information for a organization and related clients to take decision for maintenance time.

Using SQL Server sys.dm_exec_requests, we can estimate the finish time. We can also populate completed and estimated percentage.

You can execute below query while the Database Backup is running. You can find a record like BACKUP COMMAND.

I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.
Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog
