If you got slowness complaint from customer,  you need to monitor SQL Server Instance and database which sql is consuming a lots of resource.


SQL Server DBA should monitor database everytime and if there are many sqls which is running long execution time or consuming a lots of CPU resource then it should be reported to the developer and developer and dba should examine these sqls.

    ,TextData           = qt.text
    ,DiskReads          = qs.total_physical_reads   -- The worst reads, disk reads
    ,MemoryReads        = qs.total_logical_reads    --Logical Reads are memory reads
    ,Executions         = qs.execution_count
    ,TotalCPUTime       = qs.total_worker_time
    ,AverageCPUTime     = qs.total_worker_time/qs.execution_count
    ,DiskWaitAndCPUTime = qs.total_elapsed_time
    ,MemoryWrites       = qs.max_logical_writes
    ,DateCached         = qs.creation_time
    ,DatabaseName       = DB_Name(qt.dbid)
    ,LastExecutionTime  = qs.last_execution_time
 FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats AS qs
 CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(qs.sql_handle) AS qt
