Another way to get performance related information from SQL Server is to use the built-in performance reports. The reports were first introduced with SQL Server 2005 as an add-on, but are now standard with later versions. The reports provide useful information that can assist you in determining where your performance bottlenecks may be. The data from these reports is pulled from DMVs as well as the default trace that is always running.
To access the reports, open SSMS, right click on the SQL Server instance name and select Reports > Standard Reports as shown below.
