Seeing Backup or Restore Progress in SQL Server

Hello everyone,

In this article, I will try to give information about seeing the backup or restore progress in SQL Server.

In SQL Server, in some cases you may want to see the backup or restore progress.

You can easily do this using the code below.

SELECT session_id AS SPID,
       command AS [Command],
       a.text AS Query,
       start_time AS [Start Time],
       percent_complete AS [Percent Complete],
       dateadd(second, estimated_completion_time / 1000, getdate()) AS [Estimated Completion Time]
FROM sys.dm_exec_requests r
    CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(r.sql_handle) a
WHERE r.command like 'BACKUP%'
      OR r.command like 'RESTORE%'

Good luck to everyone in business and life.
