SQL Server Metadata

  • Peter A Carter


Metadata is data that describes other data. SQL Server exposes a vast array of metadata including structural metadata, which describes every object, and descriptive metadata, which described the data itself. Metadata is exposed through a series of catalog views; information schema views; dynamic management views; and functions, system functions, and stored procedures.
