Sometime something so simple skips our mind. I never knew the difference between GETDATE and SYSDATETIME. I just ran simple query as following and realized the difference.
SELECT GETDATE() fn_GetDate, SYSDATETIME() fn_SysDateTime
In case of GETDATE the precision is till miliseconds and in case of SYSDATETIME the precision is till nanoseconds.
Now the questions is to you – did you know this? Be honest and please share your views. I already accepted that I did not know this in very first line.
This applies to SQL Server 2008 only.
