The following are some examples taken from the paper:

 

-- Identity excessive recompiles
select top 25 
    sql_text.text, 
    sql_handle, 
    plan_generation_num, 
    execution_count, 
    dbid, 
    objectid  
from  
    sys.dm_exec_query_stats a 
    cross apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text(sql_handle) as sql_text 
where  
    plan_generation_num >1 
order by plan_generation_num desc

-- Inefficient query plans:
select  
    highest_cpu_queries.plan_handle,  
    highest_cpu_queries.total_worker_time, 
    q.dbid, 
    q.objectid, 
    q.number, 
    q.encrypted, 
    q.[text] 
from  
    (select top 50  
        qs.plan_handle,  
        qs.total_worker_time 
    from  
        sys.dm_exec_query_stats qs 
    order by qs.total_worker_time desc) as highest_cpu_queries 
    cross apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text(plan_handle) as q 
order by highest_cpu_queries.total_worker_time desc

-- I/O Bottlenecks
select top 25  
    (total_logical_reads/execution_count) as avg_logical_reads, 
    (total_logical_writes/execution_count) as avg_logical_writes, 
    (total_physical_reads/execution_count) as avg_phys_reads, 
     Execution_count,  
    statement_start_offset as stmt_start_offset,  
    sql_handle,  
    plan_handle 
from sys.dm_exec_query_stats   
order by  
 (total_logical_reads + total_logical_writes) Desc
